I saw spiny mice last night. They Petcetera spinies had short, stubby tails and pointy noses. The tails are brittle and fall off, so the ones I saw lost their tails.

The price for one spiny mouse was down to $5.99 from $29.99. But do I really need another pet? And they prefer company, so one spiny mouse will simply not do.

According to one website: "Care must be taken, however, not to overcrowd. When this occurs, tail nibbling can often result." Tail-nibbling also occurs if they don't get meat in their diet.

Mind you, the caramel-coloured guinea pig in the neighbouring cage was awfully handsome.
