Mouse Symbolism, Mouse Meaning, Mouse Totem, Mouse Dream, and Messages
You're overlooking some important details, so pay close attention to what’s going on.

Mouse Meaning and Messages

In this case, Mouse symbolism is asking you to look at what is right in front of your eyes and then take action accordingly. Alternatively, Mouse meaning may also be reminding you not to neglect the trivial but necessary things in life. In other words, you may have become too focused on one or two activities. Thus, this spirit animal brings to light that you have been neglecting the opportunities that surround you. Mouse symbolism could also be letting you know that you are trying to do too many things at the same time.

Like the Inchworm, Mouse symbolism is also letting you know that to attain the big things in life; you sometimes have to stay focused on the little things. Therefore stay connected to the present moment.

Mouse Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Mouse totem have a gift for paying attention to the minutest of details in everything they do. Like the Angelfish, they can also easily discern which aspects are the important ones and which ones do not need their attention. Folks with this spirit animal totem have a heightened awareness of their surroundings, which allows them to spot danger long before others around them. People with Mouse totem also tend to be rather timid or shy in times of stress. However, they recognize their timidity and compensate for it with their adaptability and determination.

Mouse Dream Interpretation

When you have a Mouse dream, it can indicate fear, timidness, insignificance, or a lack of assertiveness. In other words, you are experiencing feelings of inadequacy and concerns that you are not measuring up. The dream may be telling you that you are spending too much time hiding in the shadows of someone else. Alternatively, like the Boar, this mammal symbolizes minor irritations and annoyances. Perhaps you are letting petty problems or insignificant issues eat away at you.

To see a dead rodent in your dream implies that you are not letting minor issues bother you. You are not allowing your fears to get in the way of what you want. Alternatively, a dead Mouse dream indicates that there is something that you have ignored or neglected for too long.

If you dream that you kill or trap one of these rodents, it suggests that others are making a big deal out of specific minor issues in your life.

To dream that you or someone is eating one of these creatures indicates that something is nagging at your conscience. You need to get it off your chest.

When the rodent is white in your vision, it signifies that you are about to receive spiritual guidance in the form of a new direction in life. The spiritually indicated path will seem impossible. However, you will be able to accomplish the task if you stay focused and on track.

  1. Time between visits with my mother are often long. Each time I visit whether dead or alive, she is made aware of a mouse in the house. Each time she says she never even saw mouse in the house previously. What is the presence of the mouse saying.

  2. While cleaning our horse’s stall in the daylight, I noticed a head and front paws of a mouse watching me from between two wall boards. Then, I watched him climb down and carefully make his way to my feet! I gently lifted him with the manure pick and put him back to his tunnel. He did this three or four more times! He seemed curious, not at all scared. It was pretty wonderful. Any thoughts on symbolism?

  3. I have had two dreams recently where I had to be woken up because I was screaming and whimpering in my sleep. I have never done that before in my life, so I am thinking these dreams are significant.

    In the first dream, there were squirrels in my kitchen and a baby squirrel fell in my tea.
    In the second dream, mice were running in the bathroom and one fell in a vent.

    Any insight at all is welcome.
    Thank you!

  4. I dreamt of pet mice, they had a nice little set up with a miniature bed. I peeked in at them and there were two asleep on the bed, white bellies up, paws in the air, sleeping contentedly, and I thought they were so cute!

  5. I was so happy to find some interpretation , but also people’s sharing. we all grow with every sharing , each story can help us to grow and understand more about our situation.
    last night i saw white mouse, 2 to be exact and so cute, whem i looked at them , i felt such love and was jsut cuddling with one, another ran away. i was just looking at this sweetest mouse and it would change to a baby looking also as cuddled in my hand, just so adorable . i do not remember in my 40 years i habe ever seen mouses and was feeling such love to them, like they are my best friends. i saw some meanings to it such as good marriage , gain of something, but it felt much deeper to me then just this few prosperous things…any thoughts ? thank you in advance and everyone, happy and healthy 2020!!!

  6. After an incident tonight, I run into this page that speaks of mouses, and i find many information interesting to the pursuit of my person and mental strength. Tonight, I ventured out of my basement to the kitchen with my dear friend and decided to obtain a delightful piece of chocolate german cakes. While also me grabbing a sacred glass of water from the fridge, I noticed in my perifferal vision a small face that peered from oven under. I scream. My friend asked what ails you Veetus and I reply that I FOUND a mouses under the oven. She scream as well. Although we were terrified of being eaten, we couold not deny the sacred taste of cake. As we ate, we thought of what this visvion could mean to our lifes. After reading this page, I do believe that we needed this vision due to our disconnect with deer nature and family. however, i dont like mouses, so we planned to kill it by chucking chocolate cake under the oven machine. we would place rat poiseon, but #1, it is mouse and not rat, i dont believe in discrimination. #2 i would die if i touched the poison because due to this inccident, my spirit animal is now a mouses. we r sure that this plan will work,, will update in morning. If this would bring us doom, please respond to our actions, we feel bad now for poor mouses who just wanted home to call.


  7. The place I have been staying has been mouse free for some time until the last month. There is only one, but he seems very curious about me. I will turn around sometimes and see him watching me from a corner, just looking at me. Another time, we saw eachother across a room and he ran towards me, stopping in the middle of the room again to study me. Just now, I was sitting @ my desk and I felt something warm and soft on my foot. I was a bit startled, so he didnt stay more than a few seconds, but he had clambered onto my foot, again sitting & looking up at me. Most unusual experience I’ve ever had with a wild animal.

  8. I found a White mouse at Work, and when everyone tried to kill it, i scooped it in a bucket and let it go in the woods across 4 lanes of traffic and a block behind a loves, 3 days later while doing an oil change on a Peterbilt i looked down and saw the same mouse at my feet, he got up on his hind legs and looked at me. From that point i put him in a brake shoe box and waited for my shift to end, stopped at the local walmart found a hamster home and bedding, looked for mouse food and picked up some fresh veggies, its now been two weeks, he was very small when i found him, and he’s already grown a bit, i handle him and he runs around my neck, has never bitten, and almost purs like a kitten, ive never had an experience like it. i have named him Shell Rotella, and im excited to have him as my little buddy =)

    1. Guildshadow,
      That’s such a awesome story! If he is purring or clicking he is still quite young. When I found my Merlyn on the floorboard of a car her eyes & ears were still closed. Once they where open she started that purring noise. So cute! I actually learned to do it because it seemed to soothe her. Then I read they purr or click when they are happy! That means you’re little one definitely is happy with her new life with you 🙂 Merlyn stopped doing it when she was about 2 months old….I sure miss it lol! Merlyn has been with me for almost a year now & she’s my fuzzy little best friend. She is amazingly smart too! As you well know since yours made it back to you! I had no idea they were this smart. I call her & she will come out of her little house to hop in my hand, climb up my arm & runs inside a shirt. She hides in there & peeks out while I walk around. She likes me but not anyone else lol! She has this game she plays now where she comes to the gate on her cage & starts to get on my hand & jumps away & I chase her around the cage. If I catch her I tickle her side & she kinda wraps herself around my finger & bites me lol! Not hard just play bites. If I stop chasing her she comes over & either nibbles my fingernails or hops on my hand & back off. It’s hard to get a wild mouse to hold still but if I put her up to my check or my lips & make that purring clucking noise she will snuggle up to me. Crazy I never thought I’d fall in love with a darned mouse!! Haha! I fully believe she is my spirit animal. She came to me during a really difficult time in my life & remind me to get back up & never give up. Mice out in the wild struggle to survive every day….they cant give up. So I got back up, she’s a total joy in my boring life lol! Enjoy your furry little friend. Its a fun & rewarding experience ♡

    2. Love your story about Merlyn! What a sweet, loving friend you are to her. I hope things are better for you these days, sweetie. Many blessings.

  9. I had a highly unusual mouse dream last night. I dreamt that I looked in the mirror and saw something like a tail sticking directly out of my left check, near/below my eye/temple area. I didn’t know how something that was 2-3 inches long, stiff, and straight could be sticking out of my face without me knowing it. I pulled on it and it was bigger than just the tail. It appeared to be a mouse. I was panicked and I didn’t look directly at it. Rather, I just threw it down and walked away.

    I’d love to hear feedback about what others think this means. I have no clue, and I’ve never had a dream like this before.


  10. why i feel like mice is running on my body or on my bed whenever my sleep breaks but i see no dreams of mice ???

  11. Hi,

    In my dream there were lots of mice/rats on the floor, my boyfriend asked me what we’re gonna do, i was happy about the situation and told him “what? Look at them, they’re so many!” and sit to pet some. Then he did the same. They weren’t afraid of us, they weren’t running when we tried to pet them. After some time I’ve seen a rather big hole in wall, some were there, too, I saw a white one with red eyes, grabbed it and said “look this one’s albino, why don’t you take this one as a pet? It’s lovely!”. He said it wasn’t an albino, it’s eyes weren’t red. I was suprised, i turned it’s face to see it properly but yes, it was brownish/yellowish. But when i was turning it I saw it’s eyes were red again, it was like holographic, behind the eyes they seemed red but the front they were different. So we petted some more then I woke up.
    What would that mean? I’d love to know. I didn’t talk about or saw one in a long time.

    Thanks in advance! 🙂


    This is my first time encountering Otsinó:wen, Mouse, as a Spirit Animal Tote Otsinó:wen m. My process is to read the many thoughts on each animal’s meaning and then to approach the Totem animals from what it stirs in my spirit. Mouse is said to represent attention to detail in that Mouse is always at work, always looking for something to do, even when that work serves no real purpose. We can all get caught up in that meaningless need to work. Our society and its mores is skewed to place our greatest value on hard work, even when that hard work has no meaning or purpose. We have to learn to recognize that play is a form of learning and that sometimes, just doing nothing is an opportunity to see the world around us as it really is. Otsinó:wen also speaks to me of how a small, seemingly fragile being can actually be incredibly strong and resilient. We are descended from small mammals, not very different than Otsinó:wen, which survived when the much larger animals could not. Otsinó:wen can fit into places that larger animals can not. She is resilient and determined. And she is strong in ways that are not obvious or easy to see. For me the message of Otsinó:wen, the message of Mouse, that speaks to me most clearly is that sometimes it is better to be small, flexible and still than to be large, loud and rigid in our ways. I hear you Mouse. I feel that part of me that is Otsinó:wen. And I shall go on my way today remembering that your way is the very reason that we are here.

  13. I was laying in bed and a mouse jumped on The bed then jumped towards me then went to the end if the bed and paused I swear it was staring at me for a moment and I felt a what are u doing vibe but I was so scared I jumped up I never in my life heard of a mouse jumping let alone on a person is this a sign of my spirit animal because when this happened I was dealing with so much and was having a mental break down..I’m 29 yrs old and I always struggled with my emotions and bottled up tragic or hurtful events that has happened to me so I never dealt with them and when they would come to mind I couldn’t tell myself how I felt about it or even why I felt how I did at the time of a event.. and being single with 3 kids one who has health issues and no help threw any of it.. and 9 months ago i lost special person in my life do to a something I shouldnt have done , fear of my mother dying in a recent horrible hurricane… at this point I was feeling so many emotions I never felt before it was the worst time of my life but the best time because I found myself .. I’m just trying to find out the meaning of this event and mouse

    1. Pretty much the same. Which makes me live the little field mouse more than ever tonight
      I came across one in a tragic part of my childhood. I was nursing the field mouse in a time of, what I realise now, was a childhood meltdown. My brother accidently stood on him/her and killed my lil field mouse.
      I never forgot that moment.
      Tonight walking home I rescued another field mouse
      My thoughts were on, before i saw the nouse, what **** me up via father and how i was going to untangle myself from this abusive relation shop I now find myself in.
      History repeating
      And I saw this lil mouse


  14. I was at work a few hours ago when I saw a mouse laying still. I got close and could still see it breathing. It’s still alive now.but barely. Any ideas as to what it could mean?

  15. I had a dream last night in which I was protecting mice and/or I was the only one to see them. What does protecting mice mean?

  16. I was sitting on the chair talking to my husband on the phone about how I figured out what to do, or rather what the secret was to making hundreds come true. What worked in the past and I realize the pattern and what I need to do to get us out of a particular Financial situation that we are in now. Out of the corner of my eye I saw what I thought was a mouse scurry from my living room to the kitchen it didn’t look exactly like a mouse but maybe a vole. I left the house and waited for my husband to get home and was gone all day. He came home and looked everywhere no sign it or any evidence it was ever here at all. I’m thinking maybe it was an illusion as in a distraction to get me out of the house instead of doing what I now realized I needed to do to get out of our situation which is actually really easy to do. Wondering if you have any insight? Thanks so much!

    1. Perhaps an emotional (water) childhood incident or one involving water, should be a small, dead issue. If not, ask yourself why you are still dwelling upon it. What is left for you to heal?

  17. a Mouse literally flew in my car thru the sun roof it was a baby and it was flat and rock hard what could that mean?
