house mouse? mice? rats? or whatever, as long as they belong to the species of rodents (well that's what i get from my research lol) i'm afraid of rats lol because they look so very gross and dirty. i can still remember when i was 12 years old that time that i killed a house mouse. actually, i stepped on it. i didn't see it because there was a power failure that time so our house was totally dark. so at first, i thought that i only stepped in an avocado but when i look on my foot, i saw some blood on it and ewww very gross lol

I am afraid of mice,rats,and all other rodents because they because they have beady little eyes,and they scurry through the house,and I dunno why but I can not stand to see one,especially when Boots our outside cat decides to kill one and leave it laying on the back porch for all to see.

Yeah I do not blame you for getting mad at him for getting dirty,I have never seen a cat kill a cockroach before,but our inside cat loves to chase moths and stuff,and I wonder what it is that makes a cat have to kill a mouse,and bring it back like a trophy lol,have a great day,good luck in your life,and Happy Posting.

I kind of like mice and rats. Mice I like a little more, though I'd prefer them staying outside. I have the task of ushering any mice that find their way indoors, back outdoors. They're so tiny and cute. Rats are less cute, but I leave them alone if they leave me alone. Wharf rats can be scary. Having lived in coastal towns and cities my whole life, I have seen a choice number of wharf rats, which, in the dark, look like cats, but you go up for a closer look and it's a gigantic, cat-sized rat. Pet rats are very smart and extremely social. I DO hate spiders, and they make me extremely nervous. My girlfriend ushers them out.

Cute hamsters - Siberian Hamsters
Afraid is a mild word. I am absolutely terrified of them. Whenever I see them rats or mouse along the roads, my first immediate response was to SCREAM!! My friends and other people around me will always be frightened by my scream. Thank God I hardly see them nowadays. By the way, among the rodents, I am only not afraid of hamsters and guinea pigs. Somehow, they seem adorable. I even had hamsters before.

I hate cockroaches too. hamsters are real cute.. but they are considered rodents too.
6 Jul 08
Guinea pigs are also considered rodents. Its all to do with the way the eat as to wether they are considered rodents or not. When I was learning about rabbits and guniea pigs they said that rabbits can chew in circular motions where as guineapigs can only chew in up and down montions, so thats why guineapigs are considered rodents like rats, mice etc. Dont quote me on it but im sure thats what I was told!! I think guniea pigs, mice, rats, hamster are all cute! Its a shame rats are hated so much, they make great pets apprently. I just wish the wild ones wouldnt breed so much!

I am not exactly afraid of mice but i prefer they not share my space. I am deathly afraid of snakes, my kids have actually chased me around the house with a rubber snake before, which they think is hilarious but takes me hours to get over!

No I am not afraid of mice or rats, we have a couple of rats that keep coming in the garden. They keep going for the rubbish bags and it is quite funny as all I can see is my rubbish bag doing a dance. I have not told my hubby cos he will kill them or feed them to his snakes and although I know they are diseased it seems a bit cruel somehow to kill them.

Hi rhane7315, (*hugs) Ewww! Yuck, !! just to think about it make me wanna have a steril bath. I don't like them at all. I have a house before at Surabaya city, the neighborhood its just so full of population density. I keep manage to threw them away of my house, but they always make nest at my roof. Noisy rats! The tool of make them go away with a sound vibration through cable it's just too expensive! It is so embarasing when a guest come and they making noise at the ceiling LOLi will said,.. "That's Dul, my pet. He like to do that sometimes" Heheheh...! so that's why i keep cat as a pet. My cat was smart and fast. He always play with rats he catch at the garage. Swing it, and swing it again to the air, Yeeewwckt!!! (thats another problem) LOL OoXx`dian

I agree to you, i am also afraid of mouse. I have a machine that makes some silent noise which is generally audible to mouse only. they can't able to resist in suc noise and remains away from home.. I dont know the machine name but it is very effective, the noise is not audible to the family members only mouse can hear it..

Dear friend, I am not afraid of small rats and I may bit hesitate to go near it may be a big one. Not only all those big mice and mouse, rodents these if has a bigger size I would hesitate to go near them even I see them very rarely in our house. May if they bit big in and trying to attack me then I would be afraid other not much. Also may be there are less in our house. There are much of mosquitoes in our house we have use house nets to be away from it.

screaming? running away? i do not know what i will do since i am so scared of mouse, especially at night. when i was a child, my house ever has a few mice that always make noise at night. it was terrible. later my parents bought some medicine to kill them. and things became better.

I'm more afraid of rats than mice , mice can look friendly and not so scary because there are mice that are n the movies who are clever and wholesome like in the movie Stuart little and other movies with mice. But rats , they are scary, even though there is a rat in Teenage mutant ninja turtles, still it looks scary as well as in real life.
