Mouse Ball!

Has anyone ever used the small mouse sized run about balls for miceys?

I got one the other night,just to try it out for my lone mouse.At first she was so confused,didn't know what to do and she pooped abit in fear.I took her out and tried again later.Now she has the hang of it and rubs around in it!! She loves it now!

yeah i've got one but i never use it as the mice seem frightened when they hit something, but i've only used it when i first got milly (RIP) and cocoah i havent used to since.

I think i'll try it out on some of the younger mice just need to find the lid first.

I used the have a mouse ball when I had my mice. But they never really liked it. So I gave it away. I bought a new one (a bigger one) when I got my first rat. She loved it. She would follow me around the house. My parents' rats do not really like the ball. I will try my smaller one out on my new rat. She will have plenty of room. She is only as big as a mouse!

My spiny mice loved their balls...especially Isis. She actually used a big hamster one and was really fast in it, hehe.

Misty loves her ball now! At first she was unsure.

I have one of the giant ones for rats,but NONE of my rats liked it.They rather roam around.So the rat ball is sitting in the closet collecting dust.

After I read this I decided to try my hamster ball out on Juliet. I knew she would be too small but I still wanted to introduce her to the idea. She just kind of rocked in it and looked at me. When she gets bigger I will try again. Right now she is the size of a mouse.
