Mice are animals that are not very popular among people. They are usually considered as pests and nobody is really happy to see a mouse in their home or anywhere near them. Fear of mice is very irrational when you think about it.
They are a lot smaller than us and they can’t really do something harmful to hurt us, like perhaps cats or dogs can do. They can’t bite us too hard and also they are very frightened of us (probably even more than we are of them).
Some say that fear of mice comes from the fact that they are connected to a not very healthy environment and that they are carriers of various sorts of diseases and infections. They usually roam around trash and garbage in search for food and shelter.
This is why most of us are scared of them and we overreact when we see them. Mice have a long history in symbolism and they were often seen as cunning, very adaptable, strong and surprisingly intelligent animals. Rats are considered highly intelligent and their brain capabilities are much higher than we imagine them to be.
