How to secure detolf

Post by FuzzyMouse on Sat Sep 23, 2017 8:24 pm

I am not planning to get mice soon, but I love the ikea detolf and if in the future if I get mice I would like to potentially put them in the detolf. Would it be ok to just make a lid out of wood and mesh? Would that keep the mice in?

Yes a lid would need to be made with wood and mesh and either find a way to secure it or weigh it down... however, a detolf is much to big for mice. When they have that much room, it is nearly impossible to tame them. All the space makes them wild. I mean, I'm sure they would love it... but you would never see them. Mice like smaller, cluttered homes. Once they are tame, you can increase their living space a bit but it has been my experience that more space isn't always better with mice.
