New from Austin, Texas

Post by Gracegarden on Thu May 31, 2012 12:53 am

Hi, all,

Quite a few years ago I owned three lovely rattie boys and have been longing to have another.

Since I am unable to have one at this time I though perhaps mice would be an option.
I'm looking here for information on appropriate cages, diet, activities, and any other things I need to consider before deciding to take the plunge. I am not assuming mice are miniature rats and I am here to learn how they are different and how best to care for them.

I look forward to your wealth of information and experience!

Welcome to The Mouse Connection! Happy

For the most part, mice ARE miniature rats! Almost identical care sheets. tongue

Welcome!

I made the switch in March as my life is getting busier and rats really do need human interaction and free time out of the cage. The two biggest differences to me were personalities (mice are jumpier and not so much cuddle bugs generally speaking) and the smell (I've never had a complaint from any roommate about my rats' smell even when I had 6 at a time...one male mouse and people are gently suggesting I rehome him : P). These two things make me miss rats a lot, however, mice are pretty darn entertaining to watch in their tanks! They're very cute and charming and don't mind if I can't handle them so I got what I needed.
