Awww! How cute!
Are Shamrock and Clover that special breed of mice, that have really shiny fur? I can't remember the real name for it!

Awww! What sweeties!! Those are the cutest babies! (yes, yes, everyone on the forum knows that I call ALL rodent kids "babies" no matter how old or young they are, ha ha)

Spring just melted my heart. Is she (he?) an agouti type mouse? Marc and I are such suckers for agouti rats and agouti gerbils (of which we have had both) so Spring just made us oooh and ahhh. What an adorable little sweetheart! And Meadow's gray coloring is so beautiful too...reminds us of our beloved Klausse, the Russian Blue (rest in peace my Klaussey). ALL your babies were just beautiful to look at. That picture of Spring and Meadow together in that box was incredible..the one where they look like they are smiling. Wonderful photos Vanilla, thanks for sharing!!

They are all adorable!! I absolutely love the long fur of the satin mice. I've never seen one like that in person, before, but they are just too precious.

Thanks!

Spring (female) is an agouti,yes. She resembles a wild mouse very much and one point last week she got out because I accidentally left the cage open and she was in my bedroom and at first I thought she was a wild mouse! Wild mice are not welcome in my home,so I was gonna trap her...but when I moved and she didn't take off running (like wild mice do),I realized she was my mouse! And I managed to catch her quite easily fortunately.

I love the agouti rats and mice too.

Thanks! If you lived closer,I would let you come and meet my babies. The satins are very friendly.

Spring especially looks wild,as she got out last week. I forgot to close the cage and she was in my room eating something. I saw her and actually thought she was a wild mouse at first. I got up to try and trap her and she didn't run away. With the wild mice,when you move...they take off running. She just kept doing her thing,not caring that I moved. Thats when I realized it was my Spring. She didn't run away,so I could pick her up easy.

You can,next time you visits. They are friendly little dudes. I will make sure the scorp is sleeping too...

Oh and Clover & Shamrock were supposed to be girls when I got them...I didn't want a pile of male mice (I have 3 now),because males cannot live together,so you need a bunch of separate cages for them and they smell. And well Clover & Shamrock sucked their testicles in and because of all the fur,they appeared female to me when I got them. But they turned out to be boys. Thats okay though. They are very friendly & too cute for words.

Also they are still living together! I am waiting and ready though for if they start fighting to separate them. But they are in a 33 gallon tank and no fights so far.

Beautiful mice! You have quite the variety.
I just had to put down my mouse, Tempo, just a few hours ago.
I will be getting some new mice soon though. Cannot stand how silent it is in here already. I am missing that wheel shaking and food flying.

How many cages do you have up?

Thank you. Yeah I just read that. Sorry for your loss.

I have 3. Spring and Meadow are in a 33 gallon tank. Clover & Shamrock are in a 29 gallon tank. And Phantom lives alone in a hamster cage with bars. I am waiting for the day to separate Clover & Shamrock,since males normally cannot live together. They are still getting on fine,no fights or anything...but I know eventually they will need to be separated.

Yup,they seem to love it.
I used to never use aquariums for mice and would use bins or hamster cages,but I always had escapees. The 29 and 33 gallons I have are too high for them to jump out and are well ventilated,so they make perfect mouse homes.

But on to another note...Clover turned sickly last night. I noticed him late last night hunched over and lethargic. I have separated him from Shamrock,in case it is contagious. This morning he is hunched in his food dish lethargic,eyes tightly shut and not looking good.

I have to make some phone calls now,see if I can get him in anywhere. The only problem is,I cannot get to the vet today!
