Becuase it's not everyday you see germ-infested rodent running around. Plus they could bite... I don't know.
Poor little guy.
I've never been able to understand that fear either. They're tiny and adorable.
Phobia's.. gotta laugh at their ex<x>pressions when you pick up the mouse and put it on your arm
lol My mom is the same way! She can kill snakes all day long around the farm, but as soon as she sees a mouse....she started screaming and running away like its a starving tiger and chasing her or someshi.t! Cracks me up. I don't understand it either.
