The mouse is my spirit animal.

The house mouse, or mus musculus, is nervous.  She needs to be.  She’s prey for almost every other animal out there.  She isn’t very competitive, but is one of the most successful animals none the less.

Mice are shy and docile, but also playful and curious.  They build intricate burrows and live in colonies.  They live in cooperative colonies mostly dominated by females (does).  Does take turns nursing each other’s young, even if they’re unrelated.  Mice love their sisters and moms and keep warm by snuggling  together.

It should also be noted that I feel that I may be a mouse’s spirit animal too.
