my mouse and the wheel

Post by miska.. » Mon, 23 Apr 2007 04:49:28



hey, i would like to know if anyone has a solution for training a
mouse to run in its wheel. i mean, i bought this mouse two weeks ago
and the same day i put in a wheel so he could run in it but all he
does is get in and then get out. he just doesnt understand that he has
to run in it. so i would be thankful if someone know what to do.

why does he "have to" run in it?
I think you have the wrong impression/expectations
of your mouse. Your getting off on the wrong foot here.
The mouse will probably use the wheel eventually.
But if he/she doesn't then that doesn't mean there
is something wrong with the mouse. The little fella
isn't a toy ya know. There nothing wrong with your
mouse. Mice are more intelligent than people give
them credit for. Just be patient and you'll see what
I mean.

ok, just to let you know that i didnt get this mouse because i wanted
a toy. and i dont see it as a toy but a living creature. i posted this
cuz i heard that the wheel is good for mice for their health. its not
like i want him to run so i could look at that... just was worried
that he maybe isnt getting enough exercise.
thx,
Dora
