Keeping my mice cool

I'm in central New York and its been around 90 degrees the past few days. Tomorrow it is supposed to be 96! There is no AC in my apartment and very little breeze comes through the windows. I'm afraid it will be too hot for my poor little mice. I tried to give them each an icecube in a dish but neither would lick it. Any suggestions on how to keep them cool??

Are they in a cage or a tank? You can put a fan in but don't aim it directly on them because fans tend to get all the nasty stuff from the air and just blow it all over the place. Put a bowl of ice in front of a fan and it'll make instant AC.

You can give them frozen watery foods like watermelon and grapes. Also you can freeze water bottles, wrap them in a towel or a sock and just stick it in the cage...I would watch and make sure they don't chew on it though.

They make chinchilla stone things that you put in the freezer and they stay cool for a long time. You can also go to a hardware store and just get a piece of marble time and stick that in the freezer

That's what I would do. Just get some marble or granite, put in the freezer and wrap it in a towel. That oughta do the trick.

Ya there are many things. You can put frozen peas in a dish of cool water and they could go pea diving! It would be nice and cool for them! Also with the frozen water bottle thing that would work too. Good luck!
