Hey everyone!

My name is Sanne Sofie and I'm from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The way I got "into" mouse is actually quite funny! I work at an Art Gallery and we currently have exhibition called Red Mice District (a play on Red Light District the famous prostitution area here in Amsterdam). For the exhib the artist got 3 female mice from a pet shop for a instalation (a mouse cage where the running mill triggers a red light to go off). Although the mice were taken care of well the day thatthe instalation was running, no one at the gallery really thought about what to do with the mice! That upset me as an animal lover and so I decided to take them home and care for them best as can. I don't know how old the mice where when I got them but they all seemed "adult". I named them Leonard, Bowie and Prince (guess why haha!) I gave them a nice clean house of course plenty fresh food and water everyday. They aren't tame at all but are friendly and curious and healhty. I don't have any pictures of them right now (only on my phone sorry!).

HOWEVER the big surprise was! Bowie was pregnant!! I only found out after the birth because they're squeaking woke me up on the night of their birth! Their mum took great care of them but unfortunatley she became ill, I took her to the vet because I noticed she seemed a little "sad" and tired and although she took great care of her babies at first she wasn't interested in them anymore. The vet told me he couldn't help because he couldn't determine what was wrong and said it will probably be ok (he didn't take me seriously AT ALL). Bowie eventuallly died leaving her 2 babies behind. It was very sad but luckily the babies where about 2 weeks old when it happened so they didn't need their mum as much anymore. I helped them with eating by feeding them kitten milk with a pencil and started weaning them with cripbread soaked in water/kitten milk. They are doing AMAZING. This picture was taken when they were between 14-17 days old I think and they looked like this:

I love them! The beige one I call Princess Peach Fuzz and the grey one is called Ferrari. I am sure Peach Fuzz is a girl but I am not super sure about Ferrari, I think he is a boy! Please help me on this because I did make a sexing topic with pictures in he general health area. Anyway! they are happy and healhty little mice and are very friendly and I have handled them a lot since they were around 8 days old so they aren't afraid of humans. I think they will make great little pet friend! Kiss Kiss Kiss

Welcome! I'm glad your two babies are doing well. It's too bad about their mother... hopefully it wasn't anything that she was able to pass!
We'd love to meet Leonard and Prince when you have a chance, too. Smile
