I don't know...

Well as you know,my last mouse ~Misty~ is all alone.Most of you know why,and if you don't...I am not getting into that again!

Anyway I really don't wanna go get another mouse so soon after having a bunch die...however I know how social mice are and watching poor Misty run around alone is heartbreaking.I have been considering finding a friend for her,but don't know if I should so soon.

I don't want Misty to be alone for too long tho.What do you guys think? I need some support here.

i'm no expert, and i know others will come along w/their opinion/support...but if you spend enough time w/the Misty she might not mind, but if she looks lonely or sad you might would get her a friend as she may be confused why she's all alone? best wishes to misty

i had a mouse alone for 3.5 years and she was a champ for coming out at parties. LOVED attention, like a dog, like a rat! you have to give her your time EVERYDAY at some point

Poor thing is already really friendly with me and I take her out daily...but get this! My baby rat,Ninja,was in her cage today when I was doing cleanings and Misty follwed him around and even cuddled into him! So thats a sign she is lonely! Ninja didn't mind either,he is still young,so he doesn't know that mice and rats are not supposed to be friends!!

well some mice and rats have been friends before... but i would get her a friend, she doesnt understand your emotional issues with geting her one.. she just knows shes alone and unhappy.

if you dont want to get one so soon maybe let the baby rat stay with her for a little while?

Ninja is Armand's cagemate,so if I let little Ninja stay with my mouse temporarily...then Armand would be sad and lonely.

I hate to go get another mouse so soon.I will have a look at them friday when I go out,but I don't know if I should or not.We will see how I feel by then and see how Misty is doing then!

I was telling Jason that you should have a video of them being reunited and have that song "Reunited and it feels so GOOD!!"
