Is it ok for my mice to chew fabric?

Post by ouellettedanielle94 on Thu Dec 14, 2017 12:11 am

I know mice will chew clothing and other fabrics they can get to to make bedding but is it safe? my mice will pull my clothes threw the holes in their exercise balls. So i was hoping to be able to give them a piece of fabric to chew on but need to make sure it wont be harmful to them first.

Only two fabrics are known to be safe; fleece and felt.

Anything else, I wouldn't recommend, because the fibers can entangle mice, or if they eat it, cause internal issues.

It sounds like they are having a lot of fun Smile But I wouldn't give them a piece of fabric just to chew on for the reason stated above by AnonymousMouseOwner. You could give them some cardboard maybe? Also if they are trying to make bedding you could rip up some safe tissues and scatter them around the cage so the mice can collect them and make a nest. You're mice sound very fun!
