Single Female

Post by Anilec on Sun 22 Apr 2018, 6:29 pm

A little over a month ago I took in two female mice that I named Snowy and Summer. Unfortunately last week Snowy took a turn for the worse and passed away. Now that I'm left with only the one little lady I'm wondering If I should look into getting her a friend? She is almost 10 months old and as they have such a short life is it worth it? The main problem is there is no pet breeders or rescues that have mice near me. (these girls came from someone re homing them). So my only option would be from the feeder bin at the pet store which I would really hate to support. Also how hard are female mice intros? What is the chance of her rejecting a newcomer?

Ps. My main man Mr. Meeseeks is still doing wonderfully Smile




Here is Miss Summer.

This is a hard decision but I would recommend getting at least two more females and then if your current girl passes away the others are still together. It is best for her to have some friends especially since she might not be around much longer you want to make it fun for her. Do your very best to not buy from feeder bins, even though the mice shouldn't be there you would be supporting them. However it is your only choice go rescue a couple. It depends on each mouse but a neutral introduction should be okay. Just remember to place them in neutral territory and for short periods of time before putting them into together permanently.

Personally I would definitely look at getting her a friend or two! 10 months can actually still be considered somewhat young in mice - I've had many live 3 or so years Smile
