Help...I don't know what to do!

So I lost my little angel Lucy overnight and now Maya (the mouse in my signature) is all alone. Should I get her a friend? And if so how would I introduce them without them fighting? Thanks for anything!

I found this...sounds very similar to what I do with rat intro's, but on a smaller scale LOL.

The good thing is your wee mouse lived with a companion, it seems the mice that have always lived alone are the hardest to intro.

Good luck!

They almost always fight at first, but with slow intros, lots of room, and two food/water/hides, they should eventually be ok.

Thanks a bunch, this website works really well, I think I will keep the two cages next to each other at first and every few hours and switch them around so that they can smell each other. Hopefully it works out!
