My pet mice!

They live in my shed, most I've ever seen in one go is seven. There were a lot of littler ones a week or so ago, but they all have grown up now. Had a disaster with one last week, as I opened the door to put their food in, one must have been on the door and he fell out onto the garden path, and ran under a tiny little crevice under the shed. So I had to prop the door open about an inch and a half all night so that he could get back in!

The camera was being held no more that 15 inches away for these photos, they are quite tame, as long as I don't make any sudden movements, but I can talk to them and call them when I first take their food, and they will come now. I know, I'm mad......
