I bought some Whimzees for my Syrian (which are like Greenies) and she is afraid of them. She nearly bounced out of her cage when I put them in. I tried more than once and got the same result. They are shaped like little alligators. I am told on another website that Syrians love them. But Donna doesn't. Can I use them for my mice??? Does anybody know?

Whimzees are safe from what I've read. I haven't personally ever used them though. I'm pretty sure I've read somewhere that Greenies are a concern - different ingredients and a lot of talk of dogs and cats getting sick or impacted.  I think there are other shapes to whimzees.

I think I recall that the verdict is no on the greenies. Whimzees are fine though and my mice love them! I get the extra small ones that are shaped like little toothbrushes. They are small enough for mice to pick up and carry them away. I have alligators to that I give to the bigger beasts but I'm sure mice would like them just the same. Anyway, they are safe so go ahead and try!

Poor Donna, scared of the alligator Sad
