Oh I get it. The first mouse gets trapped to a mouse trap but the second one manages to escape with the cheese before a feline fiend catches it.

Now what am I thinking? Can't be true, can it?

dprUsh83, found this for you:

Mice thrive on pelleted food (obtainable from pet shops) as a staple ration, with some raw vegetables and fruit, such as carrot, swede, celery and apple for variety. Fresh hay and water are also necessary daily requirements. The water should be given ad lib from drinking bottles which the mice will quickly learn to drink from. A mouse will normally drink 3 - 7 ml per day.

A little canary or parrot seed, wheat, oats, rolled oats or stale wholemeal bread, also pleases them. They sometimes enjoy a little grass and a small dish of milk.

Empty, wash and refill the food and water dishes daily as they can easily become contaminated. Mouse food is best fed in heavy duty pottery or gnaw-proof containers or by using food hoppers.

Remember to provide your mice with a piece of hardwood to gnaw upon, thus preventing their continually growing teeth from becoming too long

do not feed her cheese it is a myth that mice like cheese, it is far too high in fats and your mouse will have terrible stomach pains etc :( they actually prefer sweet things like a bit of cake or bun with fresh cream :D .

they are omnivores so like hamsters and rats they also enjoy abit of meat, and any veg or fruit but dont give her wet food like tomato, orange's.
seeds and nuts are a favorite but are high fat so feed small amounts.

you will have to post some pictures :D

I always thought cheese is ok for the mouse. Even if I never thought of feeding it to my hamsters and guinea pigs.:)

they can not eat a ton of peanut butter at a time it will clog them up. But every now and then is good.

Don't feed it fruit? Every site I see says that fruit is great on occasion..so long as it's not a wet fruit like tomato or anything like that...
