    Sorry - it was a joke!

    There is no masculine or feminine of mice or mouse, except to reference it somewhere in the sentence.

    The mouse ran around her cage all day.

    The mouse ate the cheese and took some to his nest.

    Soup is of course right, (), but so is susiedqq. In everyday speech, "mouse" has no M/F marker. You would say 'I saw a mouse' rather than 'I saw a buck' (as the word 'buck' can be applied to several other sorts of mammal (I say 'mammal' because there's no such thing as a buck crocodile or a buck blue-tit ).
