Hi! Need Mouse Advice!

Post by Bambi on Mon 09 Apr 2018, 2:38 am

Hi! Im new to forums and stuff so bare with me here! I am thinking about getting 2 female mice after this summer! (always give myself alot of time to research) Right now I have a short hair Syrian male hamster. I want to get female mice! Im gonna name one of them Bambi (hence my username) but my friend will name the other. I think what Im having the most trouble with right now is finding a cage that fits my price and what I want. I have a 20 gallon long that my syrian is in temporarley while I make a new one this summer. Is a 20 gallon long big enough for 2 female mice? I feel like I want a larger cage maybe not a tank. I was thinking a bared cage that is larger than my 20 gallon but I cant find anything with small enough bar spacing but also has a door on the front not the top. I dont inderstand why its so hard to find at least close to what I want xD
Also if anyone knows any place to adopt mice near vancouver washington, beaverton oregon, or eugine oregon please tell me! thank you Smile

Welcome! a 20 gallon would be perfect for two females, in fact, you can keep up to 5 girls in a 20 long. Smile

I definitely think you should use a tank, crittertrail would be quite bad to keep 2 girls in. A 20 gallon is what I have, and I only have one mouse who absolutely loves all the spare room. He used to be in a crowded little bar cage, so a 20 gallon is definitely the one to get. I suspect you can even keep more then 5 girls in there.
Also, try getting litter mates, or an elder and a neutered. Even though male mice are the ones to look out for, females could definitely start a rivalry, and that would not be good.

20g would be perfect! anything bigger, you run the risk of mice getting a little wild and hard to tame. sometimes they get like that with too much space, they like things cozy (unlike hamsters).
