So this is weird, but my parents house has a field mice problem. They keep getting in under their sink and their cat keeps catching them. The other week my dad was able to catch one, and he admitted, they're cute little buggers. Instead of the cat killing them, or us tossing them outside, I was thinking I could get them a small tank and they can put the mice in there.

Has anyone here ever had field mice as pets? Can they be trained? I know they're wild animals, so I have to be safe when touching them.

Best not to unless you have experience caring for such animals. The Hantavirus is very common and can be quite serious
