Is it safe to reuse this?

Post by River on Tue 12 Dec 2017, 4:33 pm

Little Ares was sexed wrongly at the store, and he's indeed a boy. Unfortunately this means he can't stay with us -- we don't have the resources to house a male mouse long term, so I'll have to hope he finds another loving home elsewhere.

I'll be sexing the next mouse myself, trust me. However we already have a cage set up...he's only lived in it for a day. Can I reuse the set up for the next mouse?

I'll replace the nesting/bedding material and wipe it down. I have antibacterial wipes that are only mildly scented. Would it be okay this way, or do I need to toss the items he used? He seems very healthy -- active, clean, eating and drinking, etc.

Here's the items in the quarantine cage, along with some proof of his activity.
That's the clearest picture you can get of him!

I feel like I probably should've guessed he might be male. He's missing about 50% of his ear from a fight he'd gotten in as a young one, but it didn't click.

I'm glad we didn't get the other girl they had housed with him. She's carrying some kits, no doubt.

Yes, it's perfectly fine if you reuse the cage for a new mouse.

He really is so funny. I wish we could keep him but I'm not allowed any more cages and we can't get him neutered. Boys have a lot of personality -- I'm convinced to get one when I'm moved out and have the options, thanks to this little man.

He's very pretty. He's a satin, and I think broken lavender or silver.
