Hehe, I thought twice before I said she, but I figured you'd correct me if I was wrong. Razz

Hope things will keep going well for you and your girls!

They got new kibble today so they were all munching away at once. Having 3 tanks, one a few inches from my head, it was CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH in surround sound.

Wheels were changed around yesterday so the one who got the saucer wheel was very happy and the one who had the saucer was even happier to have the comfort wheel. The one in the biggest tank had to stay with the same wheel but she's got the biggest tank that has the best variety of toys so.


The two girls are happy as ever. The so called mean one is in a medium funk, she ran a lot yesterday and did a lot of chewing and her eye looks better so she seems to be headed in the right direction but she's the only one i would worry about as far as being isolated. She was sparking a bit today, so i did accuse of her of being a happy mouse to which she mumbled something at me! She's getting a tank re-arrangement today so that will probably get her blood pumping.

i'm just going to pop in here and give my sympathies, i hope the situation gets less exhausting for you - and also to ask, isn't it kind of easy to tell the sex? i have two boys (in different tanks) and they both have an odor, one likes to pee all over me, and they both have *ahem* rather large balls. i mean i'm just trusting their boys. is there any reason to have suspicion?

Because boys can tuck in their testicles, it can get a little difficult to tell for those who aren't experienced. When they hang loose or so long as you've seen what the different sexes' genitals look like, it's pretty easy.

I think, like with cats, it can be difficult to tell at a young age - but as they get older it becomes very obvious. I've never had a young male mouse, Daryl was 8 months when I adopted him, and it was very obvious. Same with other older boys I've seen up for adoption.

same here. goose was only about 6 weeks old when I got him, but he was clearly a boy. even when he sucked them in... it was still clear that he was a male. and then of course, once you have smelled a boy mouse, you can probably recognize a boy mouse just by giving him a good sniff.

Ok so update.

I think the funk Thutmouse III was in, or Thutty a.k.a the baddest one, was more to do with a URI. She's back on baytril and loving it. And that's no joke, she loves her baytril coated treats. She clearly likes them MORE with baytril on them than she does without baytril on them. It's weird. Antibiotics taste horrible and it was such a pain for the first few days (the first time) to get her to take it. Now she gobbles it up and seems to freak out looking for more. Must be an acquired taste.

3 Days and she's not wheezing anymore and is back being active. Clearly her URI came back and i am worrying that i may be dealing with a mouse prone to sickness since this is her second URI in 4 months of life.

Nutty, the other "bad one", is loving the single life. She runs all night and sparks around and is very happy in her palace. I am not sure if it is the room that she loves or if it is the terror she lived in for a day or two when she was rooming alone with Thutty. She injured her tail somehow, probably on a swing i made her which is now gone. It looks fine and she seems happier than ever and there is no discolouration so probably no worries. It looks almost back to normal now.

The nameless one, or the "good one" which as i explained is actually now the real bad one as she listens the least, although still good, is happy still too though getting fat.

When her course of antibiotics is finished, you can give her probiotics. In the past I've had a few mice that were getting stuck in the cycle of URI relapse and remission. I hoped to avoid giving them antibiotics over and over again for their entire lives.
I had great success eradicating the URIs by feeding the mice plain, organic yoghurt.

In the US, pet stores sell a probiotic paste called "BeneBac." I'm not sure what the European equivalent is.
