Female mice playing or fighting?

Post by ky210 on Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:19 am

My two female mice seem to be chasing each other around and sniffing each other, but there hasn't been any squeaking or wounds from what I see. I just want to make sure that they're getting along. It makes me nervous seeing them chase each other for some readon, and some reassurance would be great.

Chasing and sniffing is definitely normal. I wouldn't worry unless it looks like they are biting each other. Even a little bit of loud squeaking is normal. The rule you want to follow is "no blood, no problem".

The chasing and sniffing is how mice figure out who is who. Since mice depend on smell more than sight, they sniff each other to figure out which mouse is which. Chasing can be mice figuring out their place in the colony and trying to show that they are dominant, or sometimes they just chase because they didn't get to sniff a mouse good enough and are trying to catch up to them so they can get a sniff Smile
