    would you tell us where you got the mice ?

    I can't find any in my area or online that look like yours, white, whiskered, etc.

    check the dollar stores, Walmart, Kmart, craft stores, etc. also, if you can't find a white pumpkin you could paint one white.

    I made one last year but I used a regular orange pumpkin and black mice as it was holloween and the colors coincided better. Plus I added l.e.d. lights and a few other holloween type items.

    Thanks for the great ideas ! I might have to give them a try. I got my white pumpkins at Hobby Lobby craft store on sale.

    Yes, I got mine at a store called Spirit Halloween. We have several here in Denver. Spirit Halloween has a WebSIte but they don't seem to sell these little critters on their site. Weird !!! Do you have a Spirit Halloween store in your area?
