Mice are a symbol of shyness, quiet, attention to detail, sneakiness. One of Apollo’s sacred animals is the mouse. This may be due to one of two reasons, one being that as snakes are venerated by the Gods, and mice are used to feed snakes, this makes the mouse sacred, or because there are so many of them and Apollo is everywhere it seems to make sense that the mouse is one of his sacred animals. Mice are also associated with Mother Earth as mice like to burrow.
