I adopted a one-eyed mouse!

Post by AnonymousMouseOwner on Sat 02 Dec 2017, 7:47 pm

Today we went back to the same Petco I got Flint the hamster from. I shopped around a little, but my real intent of going there was to ask if they had any female mice for adoption, since I only have 3 mice in the 20 long now. I asked an employee "Do you have any mice for adoption in the back room?". He said "I think so.... Let me check". Then he came out with a box and told me to take it to the counter to check out Laughing I was really confused, because he didn't even show me the mouse. I asked if it was a girl or boy and if I could see it first. He said first said "Oh, did you want it for a feeder or a pet?" .... I told him I wanted it for a pet, and he then told me it was a boy with one eye missing. I personally would've adopted him right then and there if I could've, but I'm not allowed to get anymore males since they are smelly little guys, lol, so unfortunately I couldn't get him. So then we left.

But then.... I told my mom all about him, and she let me go back and adopt him, which I was very happy about! I am so grateful that I will get to spoil him for the rest of his life! He seems to be doing just fine despite missing an eye, he just acts like a normal, happy, young, energetic mousie!

So far he loves food and running on the wheel...

Now for some pics!

What a cutie!! It's great that your mom let you adopt him, it's sad to think he would've been snake food. ;o; Have you decided on a name yet?

Your welcome! Hmm if he were mine I'd probably go with Jack or Sparrow. I usually play off theme names and by him missing an eye a pirate name would suit him just perfect.

Such a magnificent-looking fellow should have an equally magnificent-sounding name:  Stéphane Frédéric Josef Armand de Bruxelles et Liège.

One time I picked out a white cory catfish that had only one little pink eye.  It went belly-up on me before I could even get home with it.  >sigh<

He's a cute little guy. And that's really nice that your mom let you get him! Thumbs Up
But you should call him Alano... It's Spanish for In Love 'handsome'.

It isn't the sort of name I would normally pick out - but I think I'll go with Jack! A lot of people have suggested that name to me and my parents actually suggested that name when I got him, lol. It fits him, so Jack he is! Smile
