Link doesn’t want to come out.

There’s a mouse shaped lump in my shirt and his name is Link

Went to see how these two were doing and walked in on this. Glad to see Aryll is settling in comfortablely.

Decided on a play session with the girls!

These two are the most skittish of the bunch but they’ve both been warming up to me quite nicely. I no longer have to worry about Midna running off to escape when handling her.

They’re both resting in my shirt right now.

Peeks!

Aryll’s a big dork pass it on.

Mousy Update: Cheng Ting and Aryll

it was a bumpy start since yesterday. After putting Aryll in Cheng Ting’s cage, they went to sleep for the rest of the day. Then they woke up and things kinda went sour.

Aryll ended up beating up Cheng Ting until Cheng was so stressed she wouldn’t even let me touch her without squeaking frantically.

I tried to see if a different combination of mice would work but I ended up dealing with five straight hours of nonstop fighting and squabbling.

eventually I got fed up and put Aryll back with Cheng Ting and things actually went better than expected.

I got a full night’s sleep without being woken up by fights and the girls seem to have calmed down this morning.

I think I can finally ease my worries.

Mousy Update: Midna

I asked the breeder I got Link and Aryll from about if Midna was satin or not since she looks shiny but it’s hard to tell cause she’s black and white.

She told me if the mouse’s teeth are yellow, she’s normal but if they’re white/opaque she’s satin.

After much struggling I got to see Midna’s teeth and they’re white!!

The breeder also says Link carries satin, so I could expect shiny babies as well as rex babies! Two of my dream mice!!

Mousy Update

Aryll started terrorizing both Midna and Chevre Truffles [of which both mice are very skittish as it is] and ended up attacking Midna on sight at any chance she could.

this lasted all night and I hardly got any sleep.

upon finding out Midna had puncture wounds on her rear, I took Aryll out of that cage and put her with Cheng Ting. 

Cheng Ting’s a bigger mouse with more authority but I had her separated originally for barbering and then for fear that she’d kill Midna as well.

My hopes is that Aryll and Cheng Ting can work out dominance quickly without either one becoming a bully to the other. It’s easy to bully a skittish or young mouse but both of these girls are hearty and confident.

Aryll’s introduction to Chevre Truffles and Midna was rocky from the start but so far Aryll and Cheng Ting are co-existing with the occasional sniff and cautiously following each other.

I can’t risk Midna being mauled or killed. She only gets along with Chevre.

At least Cheng Ting gains a long overdue cagemate and Aryll has a 10 gal plus a high rise to explore.

It’s been nonstop squeaking since 11pm last night but now that Aryll’s been relocated, all is quiet and Midna and Chevre are finally getting some sleep.
