This is really off topic, but what do you think mice smell like?
I think that Cotton smells a bit like seafood! Laughing

The girls smell reminds me of jasmine rice.

Daryl I could only describe as musky or skunky.

I can't really smell my girls, as my sense of smell is nonexistent after years of living with pets in my room, but when the girls pee on my clothes it sometimes smells like buttered popcorn.

I agree with cinnamonpearl - my girls themselves don't smell of anything, but when they pee on me I think it smells a bit popcorny!

I don't really smell anything. My roommates complain that they stink, and made me kick my mice out to the garage. I was sad but i understand that keeping 15+ mice in a small apartment can create unpleasant smells. But I can't smell anything, even now. Except for the boys. They smell like moist tree bark to me.

I pretty much only smell the girls if I lean over their tank and sniff. When Daryl was still alive, you could smell him just walking by his tank.

When I can finally smell my girls, I just smell stink. Yuck. But in the summer, when I have the windows open, sometimes the smell of my boys gets blown through the room... I think it's kind of sweet smelling. Sweet, buttered popcorn? lol

My Mr. once came home and asked what I was cooking. I wasn't cooking anything, but he insisted that something smelled good, like porkchops! It took a couple minutes for me to realize that he was smelling my hands... a boy had peed all over them and I hadn't had a chance to wash them yet. Laughing

Haha Does he feel any different about pork chops now? I know that day I was cooking jasmine rice, when my husband and I first realized the smell reminded us of the girls' smell, he refused to eat any. Laughing

Speaking of pee. Jellybelly peed on my hand the other day and it was such a surprise, I almost dropped her! It was so warm and there was so much for a little mouse! I appreciate that they don't usually pee on my clothes anymore, though.

Do you guys find that your mice pee and poop on you less and less as they get used to you? Or is that just me?

Violet pees on me more than any mouse I've ever had. I triple checked that she was actually a girl, cuz I got paranoid she was scent marking me and was secretly a boy Laughing

I haven't noticed any difference with how much they poop and pee on me... However, they definitely keep their tank much neater as they get older, less poop and pee on their wheel and toys.

I don't know about poop, but I thankfully do seem to get peed on less. I can't remember the last time I got peed on as much as my new girl does. Yuck! Hopefully she'll stop it, too.

I've always thought my girls smell like clothes fresh from the dryer: a warm, cottony scent.
