|Comment||Thank you so much. My other mice are really tightly knit. I tried introducing them and my big bootied white mouse decided that all the spots Guin touched were actually hers and poor Guin ended up sitting behind a little toy in the corner and just fell asleep there, while the white mouse (Mr Mousey [yes she is a girl, yes I know for sure, no, the name just stuck because she was the FIRST mouse I've ever had]) made sure no one touched the rest of the neutral area (she is a very materialistic mouse). I think it best if I got someone just for Guin to room with. Besides, Guin is so playful I'm starting to think that a younger mouse would be a better fit. The big bootied mice act more like dogs (follows me around, greats me whenever I enter the room, tips over the wheel and then uses it as a basket for food and their favorite jinggly ball) (I dont know why, they like to lift things up and place them places). I'm going to definitely for the girl who LOVES mice to help me this time. She picks them up nicely even if it takes a while cause they are jumpy little baby mice. Thank you!|
I can answer questions about raising mice and caring for them as pets, with knowledge from my 38 years of having fancy mice as pets. I have NO MEDICAL TRAINING and you should take a sick mouse to the vet; but if you simply can't, I will try to help you. I LOVE PHOTOS!!! I ALSO LOVE UPDATES! Let me know how the little tyke is doing later on, for better or worse, especially orphans. It also helps me to help the next person. Please first search first: use 'Natasha Mice Mouse' with whatever else your question includes.

I have had mice for 40 years (since I was 5!). I raised them when I was a child but now I keep all females, and never fewer than three so that if one dies the others are not devastated, because they have each other.
