Hi I am looking at getting a mouse

Post by EmCharlesWally on Thu Apr 05, 2018 7:21 pm

Hi. I am looking into getting myself a mouse in a few months. I have had rats and hamsters in the past, so I am going to try a new animal! I also have fish, a cat and a dog (the smallest number of pets I can ever remember having). I have made myself a bin cage, which is 50(l)x30(w)x25(h) (cm), that I think would do for 1 male?
Those calculators do not make things very clear. If this isnt enough I will add more layers ect, so please let me know, as feedback is much appreciated.
There is very little detailed information to be found on keeping mice on the internet, and I like to do a fair amount of research before adding a new pet to my house, so I will be reading this forum as much as possible!
From, Em.
Ps, as I have no mice images, here is my old rat. Close enough, right? Embarassed

Welcome! Adorable rat. We love all kinds of pets here so no worries. Smile

Mice are so much fun. Your bin cage is the minimum size for a single male or three females. After some time to settle and taming, if you have the space, you may wish to consider upgrading to something larger.

This link has all the stickies around the forum, if you feel like doing some reading. Look forward to seeing you around!

Welcome to the forum! I also have rats as well as mice - your baby is so cute, one of my first rats was a Black Berkshire called Clyde <3

As above - that cage would be a fine size for a single male or up to 3 females. Though bigger is always better! Smile

Brilliant, thanks! I will buy another box to convert into a cage, as bigger is always better when it comes to pets, in my opinion =)
