Mice & Travel  Empty Mice & Travel

Post by chaosplanet Wed 11 Nov 2020, 10:13 am

Hi! so I am kind of new to owning mice and rodents and I love it, but I am going to have to do some traveling in the near future and was wondering what to do during these times (Not long trips 2days max short travel distance same places everytime) but I was wondering if it would be safe to take the mice with me. The car rides wont be long and they will be smooth, and they'll still have a familiarity of their cage and each other while also getting outside play time with me in a new environment for them to explore. I was wondering if this would be a helpful or harmful thing for them?

The biggest issue I think would be the risk of them being injured if you have to make a quick stop or turn and something in their habitat were to fall onto them. If you'd be using their everyday cage with everything in it to transport them, I'd just be a bit worried of that happening.

I don't think it's impossible, though, just would require some careful considerations of how you give them cage enrichment and access to food/water without it being dangerous in the car.

Personally I would leave your mice home. 2 days is not long at all provided you give plenty of food and provide multiple sources of water.

If you do take your mice with you, always use a carrier when travelling in the car. I cannot stress how critical this is for the safety of your mice. It doesn't have to be anything fancy--just a bin with around 100sq in of floorspace with a meshed lid. Fill the bin with a few inches of bedding, add a hide and some food, and you're set.
