Squeak while play?

Post by Nestmouse on Mon Oct 24, 2016 8:02 pm

Over the last two days, I've heard some squeaking from one of the two cages housing my current two mouse boys.
That's so unusual for me that first I thought it was a bird outdoors, and later wondered if one of the exercise wheels had developed a noise.
Later, I was worried about Scott who is very quiet and shy and loves to hide in his big fortress he keeps building from nearly all his bedding.
But tonight I took Scott to the bathtub to play, and before that the other mouse, Jeremy, had been out there for a long time. With him alone in the room, I heard the whistling and squeaking comes from Jeremy while he's playing his favourite game - climbing upside down on the ceiling around his hanging nest.
I only know squeaking from mice either angry or in pain. Why does he squeak while running upside down around the top of his cage? Does anybody know about mouse squeaks?

Oh yes, there can definitely be happy chirps. More chirpy than squeaky, in my experience. I've heard the girls chirp when they are getting a really good grooming. And I have recently heard my Tedward chirping. What's funnier is that he stops when I catch him. I think of it like singing in the shower.

Yes, it's more like chirping, that's what made me think a bird was at the window.
