Mice does not require much space and not a large cage. The cost of food and base materials are not great when compared to a rabbit, cat or dog.
But even if the mouse is a small animal, it is a social animal that require their time every day. And not everyone has the time to take care of a pet.
And even if a little mouse costs less than a cat or dog, it needs the attention and remains on custody. In order to consider that it is easier to ignore / forget a small animal sitting in a cage than a cat or dog that otherwise can ask for attention.
Mice have a special scent that you should be aware of. Males usually smells more than females. But this is nothing that you can not keep under control. You may only adjust the amount of time you have between the cage is cleaned. And that you do not forget to clean the interior and toys while you change the base material.
Mice are extremely fruitful, and can fast become "to many" from two animals. Therefore, we don´t keep males and females together.
These little animals has a short lifespan. And it's hard to lose a small dear friend that you have known. But even if it's hard, it's nothing compared to the joy they give up until the day.
Do you still feel that a mouse is the right pet for you. So before you acquire it, find as much information as you can about the little animal's care. What kind of food it require, how to see if the animal is healthy and how to do if the animal becomes ill. Then you are well prepared before and will have fun with your pet.
