Hi there,
I have two mice.
Mary is pretty low-key.
Maura, on the other hand incessantly runs on the wheel. This is to the point where she only stops to eat and drink.
If Mary tries to get on the wheel Maura doesn't stop and Mary either can't get a turn or if she tries to hop on she gets flung all around.
Should I be concerned? Should I get another wheel?

Hmm if she doesn't seem to be injuring herself and is eating/drinking alright, I don't know that it's anything to be worried about. But maybe she's bored? I wouldn't know for sure but that's just a thought.

If she's really running on it that much and the other mouse is never getting a turn, I would suggest getting another one so that she can run if she wants too - maybe get a different type of wheel (ie a flying saucer if you have a spinner etc) and see if she takes a break to play on the other one?

Thanks so much for the advice! I will go get a saucer style wheel today. It doesn't seem like the running is having any I'll effects except she is jacked! Mary is getting soft around the middle! Ha.
