i dont hate mice as creatures, i think they’re quite cute. but i don’t like wild mice in my house; they chew through things, carry rabies/diseases, etc. and i believe NY has a lot of rats. i saw a video of a group of people that went out at night to catch rats with their pet dogs. but it’s not like they infest every living area of course
@Dong1 the main difference between a mouse and a rat is size. a rat is larger, with a long, slender body and little ears. a mouse is smaller in size, with big floppy ears. they’re quite similar but still different animals.
“mice” is just the plural of “mouse” (one mouse, two mice.) “mouses” is not the correct plural form, nor a real word at all
@Dong1 no, adult mice are still much smaller than rats, and their appearances are a bit different. think of the relation between wolves and coyotes— they are similar, but not the same. mice and rats are separate animals
