Mice prefer cereal grains and plants, but will feed on almost anything and rats will eat nearly anything, but they prefer fresh grain and meat.
Rat is short for ratatoui, a savoury dish of vegetables.
Mouse is usually a sweet dessert, flavoured with chocolate or coffee or caramel.
This answer is of course said with tongue in cheek..........
Mice are small and cute, rats are larger and well, not so cute.
(My apologies to the rat fans!)
Both are rodents, but they are different species and cannot interbreed. Mice are small rodents with delicate, thin tails. Rats are larger, with heavier bodies and thicker tails. Rats typically have a stout head, a prominent "Roman nose" and smaller eyes whereas mice have large eyes, and a more dainty, pointed head shape.
