Thought this was an interesting article worth sharing, though I know most of us already know the importance of mouse enrichment. I love this woman's mouse setup. She was a member on TFM (not sure if she's here) and she's on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook as well. Her foraging toy ideas are amazing! I've gotten many great ideas from her posts/videos.

Wow, those are amazing setups! I love the little ship with the wheel in the back! So cute!

I remember a TCM member who had all sorts of set ups on a series of shelves or maybe even in a closet. I can't recall her user name but maybe this is the same person.

Holy mouse poop! Just, wow. I wish I had the time and creativity to build that for my mouse. Those setups are amazing, thanks for sharing Heart Eyes ! I will definitely be using them for ideas in the future.

@MooMouse, Yeah I'm not that great at it either and I doubt I'll ever have as large an enclosure - but when I was making foraging walls for my mice they loved them anyway!  Even though they were nowhere near as creative or cute - they still enjoyed exploring and climbing. I never meant to fall out of the habit of making them and hope to get back into it soon. Of course I've continued building them fun things to climb and explore out of smaller boxes, tubes, popsicle sticks, etc but I think they'd really enjoy the addition of the walls.

Holy moly. The ship one is awesome! I made Yoshi a wall once but it didn't even compare. lol
I remember one of her posts on TFM about an egg carton idea. That was super neat, too.
