Eek! A mouse! There's a mouse in the house! Quick! Run! Oh wait...that's just my reflection in the mirror!Find Food
I'll make a deal with you. Give me a nice home like those hamsters are getting, and I won't gnaw my way through your walls. Is that fair? Please don't leave me alone outside, as there are lots of animals that would like to eat me!
Just make sure my living space is clean, and provide me with food, and I'll provide you with all the love you need!
But if you don't like that idea, I'll just live inside your walls and eat things when you least expect it. Come on, isn't it better to fuss over me than chase after me?
Your pet becomes an expert at finding its own food!Wheel racing
When you are small enough that major predators just take pity on you, and you can’t see as far as the mirror you are trying to recognise yourself in, familiar well-worn paths are all you ever venture on, and then you go as fast as you can to make sure nobody spots you before you spot them, because you can’t see them anyway …
The only safe way for tiny rodents and other miniature four-legged creatures to compete with one another is to go nowhere fast. Once the word leaked out about hamster wheels, everypet from geckos to beavers liked the idea. So now the big event for small creatures is wheel racing. If you have never heard about it, that’s because you were too big to notice!
