Most often, Ganesha is shown riding on or attended by a mouse, shrew or rat. The rat began to appear as the principal vehicle in sculptures of Ganesha in central and western India during the 7th century and was always placed close to his feet.
The mouse as a mount first appears in written sources in the Matsya Purana and later in the Brahmananda Purana and Ganesha Purana, where Ganesha uses it as his vehicle only in his last incarnation. The Ganapati Atharvashirsa includes a meditation verse on Ganesha that describes the mouse appearing on his flag.
Another belief is that Lord Ganesha is able to go into nooks and corners
of the world and do his job as the Destroyer of Obstacles because his vehicle
is a mouse, who basically can slither through tiny holes and narrow pathways,
even in the darkness of night. This gives the quality of all pervasiveness to Ganesha.
