These are the little devils before they left China......just a few of them......
It would appear by the FedEx tracking information that the mice had commandeered the plane......not sure how or why.
The good news is....they are in Mississaugua now.....awaiting delivery!!!!:):)
Can squeeze through a 6mm
gap. Martha cannot……she’s a little chubby through the
Mice whiskers are used to
sense smooth and rough surfaces, temperature changes and breezes. Martha’s whiskers go far beyond in their capabilities……happiness,
sadness, surprise, delight, joy, embarrassment, etc…..she is a very sensitive
Mice see best in dim
light. Their eyesight is weak, but their other senses are acute… …OK…..so she does have beady eyes….but they’re cute beady eyes…..
Mice can hear ultrasound
up to 90kHz, they can also produce ultrasound for communication between
individuals. Martha talks…..albeit quietly…..sometimes too much…
Mice prefer to travel
adjacent to walls and other edges. Or in cars, boats, scooters, and
bicycles…..and occasionally, in pockets.
They forage only for
short distances from their nest, usually not more than 10 to 30 feet. Martha has been known to dabble in time travel.
Mice explore their
territory daily, showing no aversion to new objects (neophobia). ....especially new toys and mischief. Martha likes shiny things too.
The average mouse
consumes 3-4g per day, preferring cereal grains and seeds. Martha prefers cheese.
Mice may make 20 to 30
visits to different food sites each night taking as little as 0.15g at each
site. Martha prefers a little larger portions…..hence the
thickness around the middle.
Mice produce 7 – 8
litters of 4 – 16 pups per year. They begin breeding at two months of age. No way!!
Mice use urine as markers
to determine where they have been. Ugghh...disgusting.....Martha uses breadcrumbs and cheese
Mice can produce up to 80
droppings a day which are scattered everywhere rather than one place. Martha scatters clothing and toys in a similar fashion.
A new idea for a line of cards......feedback??
