Do any of you have themes for your mouse cages/tanks?

Post by comeandsee on Fri 26 Aug 2016, 12:05 am

I felt that this would be an interesting thread to post. I know I'll be doing my best to decorate my mouse tank in white, red, black, and green (or washed out/pale colours. Green/yellow/grey...). Reason being, I'm going to be naming my four little girls after the four horsemen! Kind of dark, I know, but I thought it would be adorably contradictory. And I need a way to limit myself so I don't end up getting a dozen instead of just four... Ear wiggle

So, anyone with themes for their mousy cages? Rainbow Angel

I don't keep a theme year round but I decorate the tank for Valentine's day, Spring, Halloween, and Christmas.

As for name themes. I've done food: Cheeseburger, Bacon, Hashbrown, and Twix. I wanted something less obvious for the next group of girls: Celyn, Rina, and Seren. I got them near Christmas. Celyn means holly (Welsh). Rina means joy (Hebrew). Seren means star (Welsh). We picked up Hazel in Jan so she doesn't follow the theme. And Daryl was already named when we adopted him.

My first mice all had Greek mythology names. Next was Doctor Who, and after that it was Spring-y names, like Puddles and Sunshine.

I mostly decorate for holidays, but sometimes get into decorating around a specific toy... like a castle or a fish hide. lol

As far as names go, I'm using a photographer surname theme. Cages, I haven't really had a chance to decorate for a holiday specifically - Halloweens gonna be fun to theme the cage around, though!

No themes for tank set-ups but definitely for names! My first colony was wine/booze based: Merlot, Chablis, Frascatti and Bombay. The second colony were the opera Divas: Mimi, Tosca, Carmen, Musetta and Lucia. This last colony were all named for Buffy the Vampire Slayer characters: Buffy, Anya, Willow, Cordelia and Tara.

I never go with themes, not even for holidays or birthdays. (I find holidays besides Thanksgiving pretty underwhelming.) I just plop in whatever toy fits into the tank setup for the week. As for names, I've never gone with themes either. With each mouse, their name always comes to me. I go through some and have a gut feeling of satisfaction when I hit the right one. Sometimes it happens instantly, like Little Cow's. Other times it takes some time, like Lilith's and Henry's. You can't go wrong with naming when you settle on a name that just feels right.

Haha It sounds fun decorating for the holidays! I agree, that gut feeling that you get with things, you can never go wrong with.

This is how it mostly works for me too, just the list of names I'm going through all fit into the theme.
