Just a quick question here,
I have purchased a cage, bedding, food, dishes, etc. and I'm planning to surprise my BF by getting him two female mice for Christmas. He used to keep/breed mice and is well experienced with them, I know he misses having them as he talks about them a lot, and even dreams about them! We've talked about getting mice in the future when we have the means and now that we have our own place, I think he'll be thrilled when I surprise him with them.
Anyways, I will be picking the mice up on Christmas eve since the pet store is closed on Christmas day. but I don't want to give them to him until Christmas morning. The cage, food and accessories are all wrapped up and still in the box.
So here is my question: What is the best and safest way to keep the mice overnight, since they won't be put into the cage until Christmas day. My biggest worry is that they would escape somehow, or have to suffer in a small dark container
I'm thinking of maybe using some tupperware and poking holes in it?
I suppose the worst case scenario would be that I give them to him on Christmas Eve. But I really want to wait until Christmas.
Thanks in advance!
