    mouses sounds alright!

    smart question btw! :)

    wikipedia says this:

    "The online Oxford Dictionaries entry for mouse states the plural for the small rodent is mice, while the plural for the small computer connected device is either mice or mouses. However, in the usage section of the entry it states that the more common plural is mice, and that the first recorded use of the term in the plural is mice as well (though it cites a 1984 use of mice when there were actually several earlier ones)"

    It might sound weird, but mice is most definitely the correct plural form of mouse. Just the same as for mouse, the animal.

    Check out any site that sells computer electronics, they'll have them all under a section called "Keyboards and Mice" or something like that.
