Perhaps painting a face on it. Then make it a pet toy..
Accually I saw a show where a naturalist was watching a Wolfs Lair. It was in a subartic area and he
noticed the wolves were mostly eating mice. So he decided to give it a try. I think he deep fried them.
Anyway he got along well eating them.
I don't think it would be a good idea using mice that live around humans though. Same with any
wild critter that lives on human refuse/garbage.. Gah..
