Squeaking

Post by River on Thu Sep 15, 2016 8:44 am

I'm not sure if this is a vocalization thing - since one of them has always been fairly vocal - but one of the girls has been squeaking. Usually it's while they're getting ready for bed in the morning, in the nest. There was about 2 seconds between each squeak, which doesn't line up with a mouses breathing, so I don't think it's a respiratory problem. It's not the same sound or pitch of a respiratory infection - it's sharp, short. It isn't constant - or common - either.
I can never tell who's doing it or why, as again, usually it's while they're in a box or hide. I've tried to approach them to see who it was and why, but the moment I make even the slightest noise, they both stop and emerge to see what all the noise is.
Is this a normal part of vocalization? Does anyone know what it means? I'm not sure if they could be fighting when they're in the nest, or if it's something else.

Maybe while grooming each other?  I've seen my mice squeak sometimes during that. Sometimes it seems like a "good" squeak. Sometimes it seems like an "ouch!" squeak.  And then occasionally my girls get in little arguments but that usually involves a little bit of chase too.

Sounds like grooming squeaks to new as well. Selina is timid and fairly sensitive, and Sally is a rough groomer, and being alpha mouse, Sally likes to make sure everybody stays clean. So when Sally tries to social groom Selina the result tends to be a bunch of short little squeaks like the ones you're describing.
