dueling mice

for a specific application package i just got i need to have 2 mice connected to my home pc. they must be manually switchable from one to the other. i thought this will be a no-brainer, but i guess i was wrong. all i can find is kvm switches. i want to plug in 2 (usb or ps/2) mice and flip a switch to decide which i will use.
any help?

the y-mouse isn't an option as ANY movement of the 2nd mouse will glitch the 1st mouse's positioning. thanks anyway. i have to have a switch controlled unit.

Then go get rs232 and PS2 switch boxes. Such are made.

As it stands, with no further information on your part, solutions for the physical issues are done and done.
