My Two New Pets!!

Well.. as maybe you have already read around.. my little mouse, Cheddar, had lost her cagemates Feta and Mozzarella and has been about a month alone. 8( Mice are social, so of course it was my duty to get her a cagemate in order to make her happy. Well.. I went to the petstore looking for a little cagemate for Cheddar and 2 my surprise 2 great candidates shown up. I couldn't decide so I took them both. Now here I am, presenting to you my new babies; Ricotta and Brie. (Steph, I warn you... if you love all types of rodents, stop here right now... cause these two are just too adorable!!!


This is Ricotta.


This is Brie.

Cheddar made friends with them immediately, and here is the proof:



Cheddar and Brie. Cheddar now looks like a giant mouse with these 2 with her.





Cheddar wth Ricotta.





Mouse pile!! LOL.. I think that Ricotta and Brie think that Cheddar is their mom. They keep getting under her!





And last a cool shot of Cheddar on front and Brie peeking on the background.. inside the coconut.

They are such cuties! I saved a mouse from being fed to a snake last year, although she died on Christmas. She was only a feeder mouse, but she was a great pet and so spoiled! Thanks for sharing! So adorable!

BTW, how do you get such clear pics of them? Mine always come out blurry when I do a close-up shot, and if I use the flash it comes out too bright!

My camera has in the back a little close-up button.. it has a tulip symbol on top of it. I press that and take the pictures close to them, and I use the flash. Also, when taking the pictures through the glass I point the camera in a around 45 degrees angle so the flash doesn't shines back to the camera. I like to take the pictures at their level so you can see their faces.. so often I put the camera inside the cage (if I'm taking the pictures while they are in their cage). I think that the trick is mostly the close-up button cause sometimes I forget to press it and I get blurry pictures.

Once I was doing a gerbil photoshoot using a blue plastic bin that I had cut a piece cause it was meant to be Odie's bathroom (Odie refused to do it there and taught himself to go outside) When I was photographing one of my REW gerbils, Phoebe, the flash shone her fur too much.. so I tried to do it without flash.. and this is what happened:



Weird, isn't it? I could have entered it as POTM cause she was a ghost gerbil.. hehe

Wow, that is so weird! I wonder why you can see through her. ? I just discovered the tulip button on my camera tonight before I read this! lol I used it to take the fall pics of Sweet Pea. They came out so much clearer than the pics I took of Snowy, because I took those the other night without pressing that button. Thanks for the suggestions!

you new mice are so cute! i miss having mice. although i have rats i think mice are alot more entertaining to watch. at one time i have 4 mice and they would all pile up on the wheel at the same time and all try to run.

Oh! great idea with the tulip button! I never thought of that, cuz mine always come out blurry, too!
Here is a pic anyway, though! hehe



These are Shauna (black and white) and Hailey (camel). My babies!

Very cute! I just lost my little mouse Fred about a month and a half ago. He was three years old and the sweetest little mouse I've ever owned! I sure did love that fellow. *sigh*

What bedding are you using? Just as a warning, cedar is toxic to small animals.
