HELP MOUSE NIPPING OTHER MOUSE

Post by Nice-Mice-2017 on Sun Jul 16, 2017 2:27 am

Hi guys, my mouse was recently introduced to her new friend who I call Misty. Misty came from a shelter with two other mice (I only got her though) and they claimed she was the friendliest. Now she is nipping my other mouse whenever they get close and she is territorial around the wheel. I am afraid that she could either get more intense and hurt my other mouse or sometime worse. What do I do and do you know why this is happening?

Also they are both females! Delilah my first mouse has done great with all the other mice she was with, but Misty really doesn't like her.

First thing, don't panic! It's very rare for a group of girls to never get along. Most likely everything will work out in the end. I had the same issue when introducing a new girl to an existing group. All I had to do to solve it was remove the wheel. I removed it for a few days, then once they seemed bonded (I found them all sleeping together!), I put it back in, and there was no more aggressiveness. The girl who was defending the wheel still doesn't like other mice on "her" wheel, but there is no more biting.

Thank you so much for your reply! I feel a lot better and will remove the wheel as soon as possible. I was just a little worried because Delilah looked very stressed and was making odd breathing noises which is very unlike her. Also I was very worried because I was not sure if they would get extremely bored from not having the wheel. Anyway, thanks again for replying because now I know what to do!

Do they have lots of toys?

If you are worried about boredom you can add new toys and new treats and give them more interactive toys. I like to hang carboard that is half unravelled up somewhere so they have to stand to try and get it.

Yes, they have a couple toys, but not many treats. Do you have any recommendations for a certain treat mice love? Also do you have any ideas for homemade toys I could make them? Thanks!

Mice love cheerios, flaxseeds, millet sprays, walnuts, gerber puffs and freeze dried mealworms.

Mice also love toilet paper rolls and cardboard egg cartons. As far as toys go, a lot of us make things out of popsicle sticks and hot glue. Mice love to climb and chew on them.

Thank you for your reply! My mice are very happy now and are enjoying their time together! The fighting has stopped and now they sleep with each other in their safe room. So sweet! Thank you!
