This is true! Mice are anything but the rabid, biting, disease-inducing evil monsters most people think they are. They have much more to fear from us!racingmouse said:Your fine with colds and flu`s. Just don`t cough over them and make sure you wash your hands before handling or interacting with them. I`ve caught ringworm from a mouse before but it was easy to treat with cream from my GP. Thing is, we`re more likely to pass germs to them than they are to us!
