Vacations? Empty Vacations?

Post by Bandit Cat Wed 20 Jul 2016, 7:05 pm

Some time this year I will be leaving for 4 days,(leave one day, spend 2 full days, come back the next) and I can't take Cotton with me. I'll try to find a sitter, but if I can't, how can I make sure Cotton doesn't go back in the taming process?

Only four days? Nothing to worry about. Try and get someone to come and replace his food and water. Enough, just give him enough to last those four days. It's no big deal.

I am confused. Someone has to come and give him water, it's not safe to leave a mouse for 4 days with the same water. Even if he had enough, bacteria will grow in water sitting for 4 days.

Changing the water every day is best, if you have someone you trust that can check on him.  But if there's no other choice, filling it on day one right before you leave then again 3 days later when you return will be fine.  Add an extra bottle if you can as a backup.  Give him plenty of food too.

The only other thing you could do for him is give him lots to do. Build him some cool new MES to climb and explore.  Maybe hide a couple treats or make a pinata thing.  You can just pick up where you left off with taming when you get home. He may take a small step back but it won't be difficult to regain.

Oh, whoops! I totally forgot that water is a thing. Sorry! Yeah, try and have someone come and change it if you can. I'll be honest, I just change the water bottles every other day when I do food. But I would never go over that.
