Sleep Squeaking!

Sleep Squeaking! Empty Sleep Squeaking!

Post by lupus_corde on Sun 09 Oct 2016, 5:29 am

This started about two nights ago, I heard squeaking coming from the cage, I sorta ignored for about 20 secs thinking it was a little squabble... But it continued. I peered in to see All three mice sleeping in a pile of tissue that they moved from their nest, and little Luna was excessively grooming Galaxy whilst squeaking. They woke up after hearing me open the cage and they trundled around as per usual. I gave Galaxy a check over yesterday morning and no fur was gone so I don't think Luna over did it. Is this normal behavior, a bad habit or something I should monitor more carefully? (This also happened last night as well) Also at what age should mice be fully grown and at adult weight?

According to this article, they're fully grown between 3 and 5 months.

I think some squeaking during grooming is fairly normal. If she isn't missing any fur or whiskers, I don't think it's cause for concern. Can't hurt to keep a close eye on them though.
