Scary Stuff! Lucifina can jump BIG heights!
I've been trying to clean out the mouse cage for a few days now and having not much luck cause they are always awake and with all their tunnels and stuff I just can't catch them! So this morning I thought they were both asleep and grabbed all their bedding to put them in a bucket. Now with Magic and Pippy I always used a bucket and they never ever jumped out! It's high!
So I got Luci in th ebucket but Sophie mustn't have been fully asleep and so she ran down the tunnel and up the tunnels on the other end. I went and did some study, leaving Luci in the bucket and figured that Sophie would be asleep again soon. Well I've been studying for an hour and a half now and came in to see if Sophie was asleep yet. She's not!! Little devil! Anyway I'd left the bucket on the top shelf of the computer desk (next to their cage) and I looked next to the bucket and realised that there was mouse poo on the desk. At first I thought that Sophie must've flicked some out of the cage but then I seen Luci run behind the cage! I totally freaked! I mean these girls are still pretty scared of humans (although thankfully Luci is trusting me more and more) and I had to catch her. She could have easily jumped down onto the computer monitor, then onto the table and then onto the ground! I can't believe she jumoed out of the bucket! I left nothing in there for her to climb on to gain extra height...she has just done a full spring out of the bucket. I went and got a snow pea thinking I'd grab her when she was eating but she ended up running into their shoe and so I picked the whole shoe up and grabbed her that way.
I don't know what to do with sophie when I get her out now! I'll put a towel over the bucket I think from now on. Hopefully that will keep her in! I wonder how long the little devil was running around my computer desk for. These two are NOTHING like my last girls! They never even attempted the jump!
Too lazy to even think of a siggy
