The Trio's Home!
« on: April 12, 2012, 02:54:03 PM »
I just cleaned out my mouse tank so I thought I'd show some updated pics :) I got the fleece ropes from MRR and they love them! Lately every night I turn over in bed and see them running through the tunnels like mad! And one of them just came back from my exotic, and no, she does not have an ear infection - she's just crazy! My poor PEW mouse runs in circles non-stop  :doh:
They're favorite house is the straw house.
I'm thinking about putting plastic mesh (I have a small amount on the side they love to climb) all over the four walls - from floor to ceiling - but I'm not sure if child-safe glue is safe (I've read it is on a mouse forum) for mice. And I'm also not sure if it's even possible  ??? I mean how would I go about glueing it to the glass? Or would tape be better? Any ideas?

That looks fun! Maybe you could just tape it? Is there pet safe tape?

Tape isn't really safe. However, Elmer's Glue is safe for mice. But I would consider getting suction cups instead. They make them so you could put the end through the mesh and that way you can easily remove it and wash it, as well.

As for your mouse spinning in circles, there is a birth defect that displays like that. It's neurological, I believe. We saw it in the lab mice we had at school. It's inherited, I think. Aside from the circling, it doesn't really affect them.

Updated! Instead of mesh walls, I added another level with a shelf and this which they love:
 

here's what the tank looks like now:
