Tropical Carnival vs Kaytee Fiesta food?

I was at the pet store earlier to buy some more food for my girls. Disappointingly, a lot was sold out and they only had two different brands of mouse food in stock. I normally get Tropical Carnival Gourmet Pet Mouse & Rat food. Today, I bought Kaytee Fiesta Mouse and Rat food. I'll list the ingredients and analysis of both below. Is the Kaytee Fiesta mix okay?

Are Potatoes and "tomato pomace" Safe for Mice?

Hello, I'm looking into an organic/natural dog food that I could give my mice as treats once in a while. However, potatoes and tomato pomace appear pretty high up on the ingredient list. I was wondering if anyone knows if these ingredients are safe? I know that tomatoes should be avoided but would it be a big issue if it was in a dog food?

Food #3:
Potato, chicken meal, chicken fat, (preserved with mixed tocopherols), whole blueberries, potassium chloride, methionine, choline chloride, calcium propionate, minerals, (zinc proteinate, iron proteinate, manganese proteinate, copper proteinate,, iodine, cobalt, selenium) vitamins (vitamin E, riboflavin, niacin, d–pantothenic acid, thiamine, vitamin A, pyridoxine, folic acid, biotin, vitamin B12, vitamin D3, yeast extract (a source of prebiotics), glucosamine

Food #4:

Mouse Lead

I really, really do not recommend it.

#1: It won't fit snugly enough to make it escape proof (mice are much smaller than most hamsters, and certainly more svelte). The mouse could wriggle out and escape. A domestic mouse getting lost outdoors wouldn't have a good survival rate.

#2: The mouse likely wouldn't enjoy it. Mice are somewhat agoraphobic - they don't feel safe in big open spaces, as they are more vulnerable to predators. Even in the wild mice tend to stay under cover, along the edges of walls, or near objects to stay more hidden - and they run. A leisurely walk out in the open is a nightmare for a mouse.

#3: You could step on your mouse.

#4: You can't control what your mouse will come into contact with. Cats, or other predators (which at the very least could make your mouse feel stressed). Droppings/urine of wild mice - which could spread diseases or parasites. Puddles or rain, which could make your mouse sick if he got wet. The cold. And that's just 3 things.

#5: Mice are fundamentally home-bodies. They do not like to be away from home, in environments that they are not used to, for long periods of time. It can be quite stressful for them.

I don't mean to rain on your parade, but I just don't think it's a good idea. I know you mean well, and are just trying to think of fun ways to interact with your mouse, so maybe consider other things like creating a "mouse playground" for him to explore, on a table top or in a playpen or bathtub Smile

EDIT: Oops, didn't see EverythingAnimals post. Sorry for repeating things!

Favorite Video Games

Thanks for sharing Very Happy I haven't played Pokemon Explorers of Sky so I might have to check that out!

My gaming journey began later than most people's I guess. I never owned a console or played games until I was 17 and I got a Nintendo DS from my parents for Christmas. The three games I got were The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Animal Crossing: Wild World, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team. Thus began my love for three games series: Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing and Pokemon (though to be fair I used to love the Pokemon anime and collecting the cards when I was like 8 hehe).

It'll be hard to narrow it down to five games... there are so many great games out there! But I'll give it a go! In no particular order...

#1: The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. I love all the Zelda games but I had to pick one. I love the art style of Wind Waker and I just think this game has so much character. I loved exploring the open sea and discovering all the little islands. I just love Zelda and I remember having a lot of fun playing this game so it'll always be one of my faves.

#2: Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I first played Animal Crossing Wild World and fell in love with it - I played sooo many hours on that game. After that I played City Folk but I just felt like it wasn't as fun and really didn't play much. When New Leaf came out I just fell in love with Animal Crossing again, and it was (in my opinion) the best one ever.

#3: Ori and the Blind Forest: The prettiest, most atmospheric, beautiful game ever. I just loved it. I found it really moving at times and I won't lie - I had a teary eye more than once. It was pretty tricky at times but really satisfying when I beat the hard bits. Loved the music. Just beautiful.

#4: World of Goo. This is a weird choice. It's quite a casual indie game, but there's just something really unique about it. The art style is kinda creepy and Tim Burton-esque, as is the music. It's basically a physics-based game where you have to drag and connect pieces of goo... But it's just awesome lol.

#5: Undertale. This game is so unique and weird and quirky. The story is so great and I loved taking the pacifist route and making friends with all the monsters. I have two undertale posters lol.

#6: Layers of Fear. (oops this is more than 5). Technically I didn't play this game. My boyfriend and I have a hobby of playing all the scariest video games we can find. He plays through them but we do it together. This is the best horror game we've ever played - and we've played a lot. It starts out fairly standard, but the deeper you go into it, the more trippy and bizarre it gets. Genuinely creepy. We had so much fun and a lot of jump-scares playing this game, so I'll always have fond memories of it.

#7: Pokemon. I wanna pick a particular game but I just can't choose. Maybe Pokemon X because I'm a sucker for the cute stuff and loved Pokemon amie lol.

There's more I could have mentioned but those are the main ones lol.

Jelly's belly, literally

Yes, a broken champange. The "tan" refers to the distinct belly coloring, in this case also broken. See picture #3. Unless I am completely misunderstanding the description of "Tan" and "Broken Tan" in the article on mouse varieties. Which is a definite possibility.

5 Things About You

Soren- I never would have thought you are a boy. I think your hair is super cool, it really suits you!

CinnamonPearl - it sounds like you and I have the exact same taste in games :O My favourite games are Zelda, Ori, Pokemon, Undertale and lots of indie games Very Happy

#1: I'm from a town called Bristol in the south west of England. Bristol has a harbour, and has a history of piracy. The famous pirate Blackbeard came from Bristol, and the typical "pirate accent" (arrr, me matey) is based on the Bristolian accent. I love this town and never want to live anywhere else.

#2: My favourite place to go on holiday is Greece. I love greek mythology, I love the landscapes there, I love their food, the people, the culture. I have visited 6 Greek islands so far, and plan to visit many more in my life.

#3: I am the biggest Disney fan you will ever meet. There's nothing I don't know about Disney. My favourite films are Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Frozen. I was once paid to attend a little girl's birthday party dressed as Princess Elsa. I have never been to Disneyworld and it is my biggest dream to go (I'd also like to be proposed to in front of the castle there, shhh).

#4: I am 25 years old and have been with my boyfriend since I was 17 (that's 8 years). We have been close friends since we were 14. He is literally like the male version of me. We are both mad about animals and are hoping to get a puppy together later this year, when we get a house together Smile

#5: I have a degree in Psychology and used to work in mental health. I suffer from a bunch of mysterious health issues, so I quit my job. This caused me to reassess my whole career plan... I decided to focus on what makes me happy. Animals! So I hope to start my own dog walking and pet sitting/boarding company soon Smile
