It has now been 9 days since we brought home our rescued feeder mice.
We told ourselves we weren't allowed to officially name them until they'd lived a week. Haha.

For the first few days, the mice were eating kitten milk. First from a syringe, then a dish. I recently transferred them from a critter keeper to a wire cage (which I know isn't the best...I'm working on finding options. They go between two houses), and are snacking on fruit, and drinking lots of water.

They don't or can't yet drink from a water bottle hanging on the side of the cage. They still drink from a dish.

I bought some "small rodent" food from petsmart...but I'm afraid they're still too small for it.  I'm going to crush some up and see how they do! I'll try to get pictures of them to post! For now, here are some (bad) photos I have of them on my phone. Rescued Feeders are doing great! Image13

So much cute! I loved saying handful of mice when I had babies. Laughing I'm so happy they're doing well.

Aw! Any named for them yet? Is that one dove or gray? Either way, love those colors.

Glad to hear it! Just be careful, young mice can often slip out of wire cages very easily. A tank might be better. Did you name them yet?
