behold, the critter room

Post by scaredymouse on Sat Jul 02, 2016 8:33 pm

There are a lot of animals in here.  I got a chair today, so i'm no longer sitting on the floor.  There used to be a bed in here but I had to get rid of it so I could fit more critters in here.  It's my favorite room Smile  The pictures are in order, sort of a panoramic view.  The last picture is what I saw after I took my last picture... someone heard me in here and wanted to say hi Smile

I feel bad, everyone has big tanks except my little foster mouse... he's in a 10g... which is perfectly adequate, but he's gonna think I love him less Sad









cute little Jellybean on the coconut!  hi mom!

The chinchillas have their own room Smile Our house is waaaay too big for me and my husband. So the chins are in a really big cage in their own room so I can let them run around free range sometimes. They also have a TV, because they are really smart and need a lot of stimulation. I put our spare bed in that room, so that will be where I take my naps. Would you believe that they like to watch me sleep, just like we like to watch them sleep. I slept in there the first night and every time I woke up, they were staring at me!

How funny. I think I'd have trouble sleeping though, being watched. Laughing

AMAZING! I'm so jealous. If I ever had a lot of critters, I'd totally do something similar. Though with me, I like to keep things minimal. I especially love how everyone's tank is labeled.

Yeah, it's a lot of critters. As you can see, I'm at maximum capacity! I'm glad I sticky notes on everyone, it's impossible to keep track of birthdays. But at least I can remember everyone's names.

Scaredy, I gotta ask. How do you do it? Like with me, I'm already feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of having two 10gal tanks, but you've got over five of the big ones! It would just be so daunting to me!

What an awesome room! Your dedication to so many pets is incredible... the most cages I've had was 11 (or 12?), and it made me super bonkers. Silly

I've thought about moving everyone into Anna's room... it'd be so nice to have a corner dedicated to the mice. I'm down to three cages now, and ready to get rid of some of their unused stuff, so hopefully I'll feel less cluttered soon. Can't wait! lol

I am currently managing 7 tanks, 2 cats, and a chinchilla cage. The cats need the sandbox cleaned daily and fed twice a day. The chins need their poops swept up daily. But the tanks aren't that big of a deal. I have 3 tanks with mice which need to be cleaned weekly. But the hams only get cleaned every 3 weeks.

So other than the animals with the daily maintenance, I spend about 4 hours once a week cleaning mice and spot cleaning hams. Then I have one really horrible day every 3 weeks cleaning everyone. It's really not that much work. I have a routine and it goes pretty quick.

And if I don't have the time to really spend with everyone, I have found a way to entertain many solitary animals at once. I can put a ham in the ball, let one run free range, put one in the playground and hold a boy mouse at the same time. Everyone has fun and it doesn't take me all night to play. My numbers increased pretty slowly, so I had time to get used to the extra workload. And then there was a point where you just go into the zone. Like when I agreed to foster Andy, at this point, adding a 10 gallon tank doesn't change my life.

It makes me happy to provide sanctuary to all these critters, even though it is a lot of work. Almost all of them are rescues or have medical conditions or behavioral issues. So, I had to put a lot of work into taming them all and gaining trust. When they are happy, I'm happy. So, cleaning tanks is lame but also really rewarding when you see how happy they are afterward.

Random question - do chinchillas make any noises at all?
