Happy 1 year Holly!

Post by AnonymousMouseOwner on Sun 30 Apr 2017, 10:46 pm

On May 4th, Holly will have been with me for a year. Holly is the sweetest little mouse, and she has been through so much. My first mouse, Snow, died of illness. After Snow passed away, I decided to try again, I got Holly. I remember how excited I was picking her out at Petco. It was hard to pick just one mouse! I was going to pick a siamese looking mouse, but last minute I changed my mind and said I wanted the black mouse! I took her home, and let her settle into her ten gallon tank with aspen bedding, a coconut hide, a water bottle, a tiny wheel, a bowl that had sugar filled treats and nuts in it along with bird seed, and a wooden chew. She was such a tiny little girl, always has been. Later on, I discovered The Fun Mouse. I read and read. I figured out she'd really like a friend. I was scared, I didn't know what to expect when introducing her. I didn't want to get her a friend, as I was afraid they'd fight. We then upgraded her cage to a 20 gallon long. My dad helped me make some platforms for her and found her a bigger hide. I sewed some little things out of fleece for her. Eventually, I decided to get Daisy. We quarantined Daisy for less then a week, yikes! Then, I introduced them in a 10 gallon tank. No fighting at all. Daisy chased Holly a little bit, but other than that, nothing. That was the most peaceful introduction I have ever done. Then I separated them again, whoops! I let them play for a little bit everyday, before I eventually put them together in the 20 gallon long. They were immediately best friends and slept together in the hide. I later joined Pet Mouse Fanciers and corrected all my mistakes. I got several other girls, she was accepting to all of them, never argued or fought with anyone, even if they were doing it to her. Then, she suffered a stroke, she made a full recovery, but lost her tail as a result of it. She's a sweet, happy mouse that has been through so much. Happy first birthday, Holly!
