Wireless mice on either PS/2 or USB ports work fine with FreeBSD/X11/Window Managers. I've used them for years, and would never go back to a corded or balled mouse again. I too live with cats, though not Maine Coons, and you really should learn how to fix mice. FWIW, my optical mouse (a Logitech MX700) stopped working -- at least the scroll wheel stopped working. So I took it apart, and removed an unbelievable amount of hair from around the scroll wheel. It covered both portions of the optical train, and once it was removed, it worked fine. Very fine tweezers helped a lot. Other than that, you have to clean the optical port on the bottom once in a while, but that's it. I use tweezers. Rather than buy what's cheap, I'd suggest finding a quality one on a deal or buying a used one. I recently bought a Logitech Mediaplay (a fine general-purpose mouse) for $15, and another lightly-used MX700 also for $15. Yes, I have that many computers...
