Workers at an animal charity in Oxfordshire are trying to find homes for a ‘mischief of mice’ found in an abandoned pet shop. They were discovered in cages in an empty shop in Cornwall by a builder who took them home before contacting Blue Cross pet charity.

Aly Jones, centre manager at Blue Cross rehoming centre in Burford said: “The first thing we had to do was to ‘sex’ all the mice, so we could separate the males from females to make sure we didn’t end up with even more. It was quite a challenge!

"Now we are appealing to all the mice lovers out there to help us find them new homes.”
