Last Thursday, August 2nd, i got my mouse Julius at my local petco. She looked fairly small, and the petco employee told me she was still young but didnt know the age. I’m a so confused and mad at myself that she passed away this Wednesday, August 8th. The cage was larger than requirements. (I bought more than one mouse, so she was with a group) I changed the water, food, and cleaned the cage everyday bc i was so excited to have mice. The tuesday night before she passed she seemed perfectly normal too, which confuses me the most. I wanna know what i did wrong so i dont harm the mice i have now.

You probably didn't do anything wrong if the others seem fine and you didn't do something unusual or give them anything unusual.

The mice one buys at Petco and Petsmart, or other chain stores, especially Feeder Mice, tend to be poorly bred with unstable genetics and by extension, health. So they tend to die suddenly and often without warning.

I'm sorry for your loss ):

I agree with Mahjling, I have had this happen many times with hamsters. They look as if they passed in their sleep suddenly and they were acting completely fine the day before. Sadly, these things happen often with pet store animals because the facilities they are bred in pay no attention to genetics. Not your fault at all. Your mouse could have had a sudden heart attack or something of the sort, nothing you could have prevented or caused. I'm so sorry for your loss Sad

I agree with those above. It’s unlikely it was anything you did. I’m so sorry for your loss. hugs

I agree as well! My mouse, Kimchi had health issues which she had recovered from after I took her in. I hope you feel better and know that it was not your fault whatsoever! Angel
