there is a new sheriff in town.

Post by scaredymouse on Wed Jan 18, 2017 6:08 am

We had quite an exciting evening in the critter room last night. I introduced Freckles to the colony and it was very entertaining. I had to go get a snack, I was on the edge if my seat! My current colony consists of old Delilah who has had several strokes but is still hanging on, sweet Jellybean, and Bitsy my feisty butt-biter. Freckles is the friendliest little thing who is always in the hammock begging to come out. I expected a successful intro. Although, I love Freck so much, I kinda didn't want to share her ☹

Anyway, I plop everyone in the kiddie pool with some toys and pull up a seat. The sniffing begins except Frecky initiates it and the others sniff back but she doesn't back down. If fact, Freckles starts trying to hump everyone. Everyone was speaking up a storm, except Freck... She didn't make a peep! I guess we have a new alpha. It's funny because she's a baby and half the size of everyone else. She humped all of them! Repeatedly! After about 20 minutes, they were all running in the wheel together. I expect they will all be snuggled up by morning.

But what a show! I've never seen anything like it. I've never seen a new little mouse take over a colony like that.

Isn't it funny how it almost always is the mouse you least expect? Laughing At least that's how it seems to work for me. Laughing

Sounds like a thorough take-over! The baby alpha! It sounds so sweet actually! It's a nice thing about keeping mice though - you can never be totally sure what to expect!
