|Comment||thanks. I do swap them around in the cages, but will try the vanilla trick. When I refer to a bed, it would be anything they would burrow and sleep in. some have baskets, some have cubbies, others stack bedding and create their own. Most cages are kaytee critter trail. these mice cant stay at my work, and figured I would give them a place to live, instead of the others using the bad traps killing them. It originally started last year with 2. and then 5 this spring, which has become the problem combining them to all use the tunnels I build for them to play in. I think this was supposed to be different comments, but will check back towards end of april.|
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.
