Clicking, Happiness or Sickness? Empty Clicking, Happiness or Sickness?

Post by ApricotWinter Thu 07 Jan 2021, 12:29 pm

Hi! I have a small PEW female mouse who has been having some troubling symptoms. She has been making small noises that sound like they are half sneeze, half sqeak. She is healthy in all other aspects. She has been eating and drinking, grooming and running. She does'nt always make the noise, but when she does it is usually when she is eating, being handled, or exploring somewhere new. She hardly ever makes it when she is eating, but I still thought I should mention it. Oh! And one more thing. She is being fed on a miz of oats, and Mazuri.

Is her bedding dusty at all? Could be an allergy but most likely she is just communicating to you. She is excited. Is it like a whiffling noise? Fig makes this when he's being petted. Just keep an eye on her.

Ok, I always choose dust free bedding, and let the cage air out before I put them in. Thanks for the advice!

A video would be helpful, but all of my vocal mice had made a little 'tft!' sound. When you have a URI on your hands it sounds pretty different, but it's hard to tell unless you've experienced them both. Does it seem to be in response to anything in particular? Is there ever a common trigger?
Vocal mice are typically vocal from a young age, so if your mouse is an adult who has suddenly started vocalizing that would concern me a bit.

She is a about 6 weeks old. Usually when there is something new in her cage, or when she is being handled. I have had a mouse that had a URI. She hid the syptoms really well, and when she finally started to show syptoms she passed away. Thanks for the advice!
