So I am probably going to rehome Deaglan...only if I can find the "perfect" home.
I love the little guy,but I cannot handle his stink.He already stinks my whole house out.I have his cage in the living room,because that is the best place for it.Well last night I went out and when I returned and opened the door all I could smell was mouse stink.
I noticed a few days ago there was a little bit of male mouse stink,but it was not bad and I burned incense to mask it.But last night the whole house reeked of mouse,it seemed like I had about 10 male mice (but I only have the one).Then tonight I was out and just returned home to mouse stink.
Deaglan's cage is clean.I cannot excessively clean his cage,as the more you clean the cage,the more they scent mark and stink it up again.But it is clean enough.
I really cannot handle it.I have not had male mice in yrs and the last time I did,I had a room especially for them.Now I do not.And I cannot have my friends visit with the house stinking like this,especially since I cannot even handle it.I have some friends who don't own pets so it would be 1000 times worse for them.I simply forgot how bad male mouse stink is and sadly Deaglan as cute as he is,reminded me.I was not going to keep any of the males from that litter,but he was too cute and I kept him and well now I regret it.I hate to say that,but I cannot have male mice.My females are nowhere near as bad and they all live together! It is crazy how ONE male mouse can clear a room...
So I decided tonight I will start looking for a home for him.I was hoping that one of my friend's who took my other male babies would take him,but they are not interested.Too bad.It will be hard to find a good home with someone I do not know,but nobody else I know is interested in mice...especially a male.
