Pet food is made of the bits of food leftover from the production of ready meals, Frozen foods, fast food ect, These are mixed up with grains and all other crap to make it resemble some form of food. It's then all sprayed with a flavour so it will be eaten and not ignored (That doesn't stop some cats though). Back to your question and with my answer we don't eat much mice so there's nothing left over to produce the cat food with, I'm sure there's most likely some novelty "Mouse" flavour cat food out there but I haven't seen it.

It is probably easier to obtain chicken, beef, fish etc, used to make the cat food since they are already mass produced and they probably get lower grades (quality) that can't be sold for human consumption, as well as by product. Whereas if they made mouse flavour, they would have to start up a mouse farm (or factory). Also, I'm sure that many of the companies making cat food also make dog food, likely form the same material, and I don't think mouse flavoured food would be marketable to dogs (owners).
