Given the way they operate, these may not really be what you call 
attacks.  More like:  you discover the mice have escaped the lab, & 
while you are trying to round them up, you also notice they've unlocked 
the baboon, skunk, poisonous reptile, & elephant cages, & topped it all 
off by lighting a flame near a hissing container of highly flammable 
stuff.  You've got the Jenoine equivalent of your hands full.

It is some time before it dawns on you that these may in fact be 
hyperintelligent pandimensional mice  :-)
