CHOCOLATE RAN AWAY!!!!!!

Post by fancymice on Tue 15 May 2018, 1:25 pm

Today I looked in her tank and she wasn’t there, I think I saw her run by me this morning because I saw something black in the corner of My eye and I thought I heard rustling. Please pray that I can find her and that she is okay Sad

Ahh, this is very scary- it happened to me a few weeks ago, so I know how you feel. Sad

That said, mice are generally pretty good at hiding and getting their little noses into things without getting hurt, especially if you don't have other animals. (If you have dogs or cats in the house, pay close attention to them, they'll probably find your girl before you will!)

Figure out how she escaped, and fix the problem so that her cagemates won't also escape.

Finding her may be as simple as leaving some food or water out, especially if she's tamed! Place some of her litter with some food and water on a counter/desk and she may come back.

If you don't see her very soon, I would suggest making some safe traps to lure her home.

There's a good video about this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkB7nUtQoKM


When my girls escaped, I found one of them on accident, so she may be still close by: check dark spots in the room the cage is in, clothing piles (Clue was in my laundry basket), anywhere there may be food available, etc.

My other girls took a little more time to find; I left the room for a while so they would feel secure, and when I went back upstairs I found one in a bag of trash rooting around for a snack.

Dragon was harder to find (and we almost accidentally caught the wild mouse that's been hanging out in our apartment because they look so similar Laughing), but we set up a similar trap to the one in the video, and left some food and water in the cage that broke, left her wheels out next to some food, and we were able to coerce her back and eventually caught her.

So, don't give up hope! I'm sure your furry friend will come home with the right lures.

Best of luck finding her! Love

Thank goodness you found her! I've always managed to catch escapee mice quickly, but my gerbils were excellent at sneakily escaping and making it across the house.
