Mice do not really like cheese and they will even actively shy away from certain types of cheese.
According to Dr. David Holmes of Manchester Metropolitan University
who recently did a study on whether mice liked cheese or not, while
hungry mice will pretty much eat anything (even cardboard), most
types of mice strongly prefer grains, fruits, and sweet things.
Certain types of mice will also eat insects and other small animals.
Basically, they like to eat what they have been accustomed to eating
since before humans started making cheese around 10,000 years ago.
Many mice also like peanut butter and sweet chocolate. Interesting
to know that mouse urine glows under florescent light.
