(2/16/08) At the moment, I do not have any mice, although I am thinking about breeding
again. Email me if you have questions or might be looking for mice in the next 5 to 6 months.
Hello. My name is AJ, which is why the name of my mousery is AJ's Mousery. I live near Sacramento,
CA in Fair Oaks. If I start up the mousery again, my girlfriend, Lauren, will be helping out a lot, so I decided
that she should probably deserve some of the credit :)
Now...for the beginner who doesn't know what a mousery is because they can't find the word in the dictionary, it is a
term used for someone who breeds mice. I happen to breed only pet quality mice that are not to be used for feeding hungry
snakes or other reptiles (try Mice on Ice
if you need feeder mice...the frozen mice are healthier for your animal anyways). I might also breed rats sometime
in the future...I'm not sure. It wouldn't be for a few years, anyways.
I have been a small animal enthusiast for as long as I remember, but I've only had the means to keep some for myself
in the past few years or so. My parents got my siblings and me pet rats, mice and a hamster or two when we were a lot younger,
which I believe set me on my journey as a small pet owner. I currently own one female rat, and a female
rabbit named Molly. I'm thinking about adopting a couple male rats from Candirats Rattery
sometime in the near future if I don't go back to breeding mice.
I breed my pet mice for several reasons:
- To share wonderful pet mice with other people in my area by making quality animals available. A lot of the store-bought
mice out there aren't in great health and there aren't any breeders that I know of in the Sacramento area.
- To enjoy all aspects of having pet mice and learning as much as I can.
- To learn simple first-hand techniques of animal rearing because I'd like to start breeding larger animals soon and someday
I'd like to open my own pet store where I could do all my in-house, clean and safe breeding of small pets.
I hope you enjoy my site. Take a look around if you'd like and if you're interested in me going back to
breeding some mice for this area, go to the Mouse Adoption Form or just send me a direct E-mail please.
