I'm not a huge fan of rodents but even I have to admit these little critters are adorable.

Love all of those pictures, thank you for sharing! Especially of the mommy mouse. I adopted a pregnant mouse from the humane society last year (didn't know she was pregnant until a week or so after adoption but it turned out to be a happy accident) and it amazed me when I saw what a wonderful, caring mother she was and still is.

I can't abandon the person I used to be, so I carry her.

The baby looks like a baby degu! But lighter in color (not counting the color mutation degus).

Lovely!

Rhys, yes, mice are amazing mothers. Some years ago, we were pulling a trailer out of an old shed. We didn't realize that a mouse had her nest in it until she ran out of it, carrying a baby. We stopped immediately. That mouse came back and carried all of her babies off, one by one, even though we were standing there. Such an amazing display of courage - I'll never forget it.

Wow, mlp, that's amazing

I currently have one of these photos as my desktop wallpaper, and sent them out to family and friends. My mom thought they were awesome too.

How omni's can think these animals are adorable and beautiful, and then turn around and eat meat... I just don't get it.
