Long hair or unhealthy?

Post by Daydream on Tue 29 May 2018, 4:03 am

Can anyone tell me if this mouse is unhealthy or just has longer hair than normal? It feels very soft but I'm worried (despite the similar coloring it's not the same mouse in my avatar)

Just a note: I know the wheel is rather small and I'm ordering a bigger one.

I'm not sure, but looks like her hair is just on the longer side. Do you have any prior photos of her? How long have you had her?

She is adorable by the way Very Happy

I agree with Rodents Rock, she's adorable! I've never heard of long hair meaning a mouse is unhealthy, so there is no reason that I know of to think she is unhealthy! I find that sometimes young mice have long hair, and it becomes a normal shorthair coat as they get older, so your girl might turn into just a standard, shorthair coat mouse as she gets older. Sometimes it stays though! My Blossom is super old and still has her long hair! Same with my Rocky, he still has his too and is a year and a half old!

Oki doki, thanks, I just read that scruffy fur is a sign of a sick mouse and I got paranoid her fur was a 'scruffy' type. Thanks for the reassurance though Smile

Scruffy as in... unkempt, greasy, thin, etc. Your girl is gorgeous and appears to have a very healthy coat!

Oh, ok, I thought you had her for awhile and her hair had changed since you got her Very Happy
Yes, as others have said, I too believe she looks fine.  
What is her name?
