one of our mice died, will the other be okay alone?

Post by wildwoodflower77 on Sun Jun 04, 2017 2:16 pm

Our mouse Stormy died last night leaving her sister Cowie alone. Will Cowie be okay alone as we do not plan on getting any more mice. Is there something we can do for her other than getting another mouse?

How old is Cowie? You can certainly start spending more time with her, she'd appreciate it. Without mouse friends to keep her company, she would appreciate your company.

Ok, so she's older. If she was a younger mouse, I'd say she needs another mouse friend, because young mice still have years to go, and they shouldn't spend that much time without friends. But since she's 2 already, I think it'd be ok not to get another mouse. It's always better to get another mouse, if you can, but if you don't want to have mice anymore, it obviously isn't the best option in this situation.

Spend as much time with her as you can and make sure to give her a lot of enrichment in her tank.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I agree with what has been said above. At her age, I'd say you'd be able to get away with not getting her a new friend. Just ensure you spend extra time with her, you'll essentially become the other mouse for her.

I'm sorry to hear about Stormy, play well at the bridge little one X

I'm sorry for your loss. I agree, at two years old, I think it would be fine not to get another mouse since you aren't planning on keeping mice anymore. Just give her lots of attention and lots of fun things to do. Very Happy
