New Silky Siamese Sisters :)

Post by Opalesce on Sat 11 Feb 2017, 9:45 pm

Long story short, a friend of mine is a manager of a local petstore and said that these little ladies were being picked on by the rest of the petstore meeces, and asked if I wanted them. So my boyfriend gave me his old hamster cage and I said yes. Smile They are in a separate room from Edgar in quarantine, and are a bit sneezy so I am assuming it's just something in my house they may be allergic to!! Regardless, I have a vet appt. booked for also sneezy Edgar on Tuesday so we'll see what happens.

They are named after two of my favourite things- opals and tea!! The first 4 are of Opal, who is quite small and friendlier than her sister, and the last 4 are of Camellia, who's a bit bigger, furrier, and quite shy. They're so skittish compared to Edgar, but with a little love I'm sure they'll warm up in no time.

Oh my goodness! Gorgeous!!! Fyi, sneezing is not uncommon for the first two weeks... It's actually called box shock. Keep an eye on them but most times it clear up.

Thank you scaredymouse!! I love them <3

I am aware of boxshock, but it will be 2 weeks from the day I brought Edgar home this coming Tuesday and he's still very sneezy... I don't believe it's an RI because there's no nasal discharge or rattling noises from his lungs, but thought I'd bring him to the vet just in case. Smile Hoping it is just allergies for everyone, although Camellia is sneezing less than her sister.

Thank you all! They are doing very well. Such cute little ladies.

I am just now realizing that they may be himalayans, as their points are a bit light and their eyes are slightly pink! I have no idea. If anyone's a pro with mouse coloring I'd definitely appreciate a comment Smile

They're beautiful! I love satin mice, I had one a few years ago and haven't seen another since. Razz


I think siamese and himalayan both have pink eyes, the difference is the coat color... himalayan mice are supposed to be white and Siamese are supposed to be a sort of creamy beige. Without knowing genetics it'd probably be hard to say for sure either way.

Thank you Peachy! I wasn't aware siamese had pink eyes as well- but these little ones are very decidedly cream-coloured, so I guess I'll go with siamese for now. Smile

And I love silkies! I got lucky, I think- Opal and Camellia were the prettiest and only silkies in the pet store.

You have gorgeous mice! They are super cute! You are really good with a camera, every time I try to get my mice to model, they come out as blurs because they move to fast. I especially love that last photo where she's peeking out at you from behind the strawberry! It's just so adorable. Her little brown nosey!~

Himalayan and Siamese are definitely my favorites as well. I have a whole bunch of short hair Himalayans, the only problem is... with all the identical markings, I can't tell them apart.
