Rodentry update

Post by Anne Marfis » Sat, 16 Jan 1999 04:00:00



    I haven't been online for over a week, so here's the latest news from
Anne's Rodentry:

    Since I bought The two mousies from the evel man at Petco on 1/2/99,
their personalaty has greatly changed. At first, I had both of the new ones
living in a giant enclosure, but I noticed that they weren't getting along
very well. They kept squeaking at each other. I put the calm one into Z's
cage and they got along beautifully. Now Squishy (as my brother named him)
is not so afraid of everything. The other mouse, Cuddles (again named by my
brother) was really aggressive. He even bit me once. Now that he is living
alone, he is much better tempered.

    For the first week, Cuddles would not allow himself to be held. Now he
acts like any other mouse would, but only a little wearier. Petience really
works. I just stroked his head really gently, and now he loves me! I hand
fed him treats, which he especially enjoyed.

    I need rats. They are calling to me. They are saying " We love you, so
come and get us" < suddenly remembers she is in a public place>
Oh! never mind! What I meant to sat was that I really want rats, really
soon. They are soooo cute and smart!I always go "Awwwww" whenever I see any
rat.

    All of my mice are doing just fine : ~ )

    Cuddles, my new mouse, seems to have longer hair than most mice do. I
have seen pics of rex mice, and his hair isn't that long. But I was
wondering if he was a sifferent type, or if I was just seeing things. I'll
post pics soon. Maybe he's a {rex X Normal}? I don't really know alot about
genes.

just wondered how are mice compared to rats in temprament, personality etc. I
have never had one, I might be a bit worried to have one as i would be scared
that it could get through much smaller spaces when let out, and maybe get lost.

    Mice make wonderful pets; I play with mine all the time. Rats are a
little smarter than  mice. I don't let my mice have the run of the house,
for obvious reasons. Once, when Z got out, he chewed up my curtains, then
put the lace in his nest and went to sleep. It was really funny. Mice never
bite, unless they have been abused or really scared.
