I am going to be a first time mom in oct. and my mother in-law is driving me crazy about getting rid of my pet mouse and told me that I had to get rid of him or I would have a deformed baby. I would ask my doctor but because of problems with Medicaid I still have not seen one. is this a scientific fact or a wives tale I love my pet and have had him for over two years and do not want to give him up. please help

Old wives' tale. The only thing that will cause a deformed baby is a genetic abnormality and those are not caused by pets.

That being said, if possilbe I would still have another person clean the cage.
