Hahaha! You crack me up!
I used to have pet rats...one of them had a stroke and used to run in circles
and eventually after a few days I had to put it down.
As for the original question...I tried keeping breeder/pet mice for a year and they were too bitey for me. And stinky! Then when some would escape (due to my negligence) it was always a big pain to recapture them.
The females were always so nasty...I'd never keep mice again as pets!
