I kept my rat in a large plastic container, he got sick because I didn't put the right lid on it. Get a MESH chicken wire, small enough that he can't squeeze through.

AnswerI asked the question and I'm taking about a container at least 20cm by 20cm or more. Preferably, 50cm by 30cm and at least 20cm height.

Plus...Plenty of breeders (of pet mice) use large (25in by 20in) plastic containers to house their mice because it is a lot cheaper and because most pet shop cages are way too small.

Please ReadREAD THIS PLEASE! YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW THIS!!! Ok, I have a hamster, and the one thing I would recommend is not putting your mouse in a plastic container. They need a lot of exercise, so, they are a lot better off being in a cage with a wheel and bedding because they use the bathroom a lot and considering that pet hamsters, mice, etc. like to keep themselves clean it's also a good idea to keep their living quarters clean. Otherwise, they can get mites. You can buy cages that have food bowls, drinking bottles, wheels, and etc. in them. I'm sorry but I just don't recommend putting your mouse in a plastic container no matter how big the container is. Also, they love to chew and it will chew straight through that lid and get loose and you may never find it. Believe me, one of my hamsters chewed through thicker plastic than that. So I really really really wouldn't recommend it because that will happen. I hope you listen to my advice.

How do you make an improvised water purifier?

There are a lot of variations of this method, but I'll just cover the key concepts here. 1- What you will need: 2- Large container (the shell of the apparatus, and container for the unpurified water) 3- Small container (to catch the purified water) 4- Plastic sheet (must be large enough to cover the large container. this is the only part that cannot be improvised in the wild) Method: Place the catching container in the center of the holding container. Fill the holding container with unpurified water so as not to cause the catching container to float, and so as not to get unpurified water in the catching container. Place the plastic sheet over the top of the holding container and secure the sheet so as to make the whole thing air tight. Place a rock in the center of the plastic sheet over the catching container. Leave the set up in the sun and allow the water to evaporate. As the water evaporates it will collect on the plastic sheet and flow towards the rocks depression. Then it will drip into the catching container. The water in the catching container is pure and can be drunk. Variation: Dig a hole in the ground and use the hole as a holding container. Place the catching container in the middle of the hole and cover the hole with the plastic sheet as above. In this case you are using the moisture in the ground and don't need to fill te hole with water, although wetting the soil around the hole wouldn't hurt anything. In fact you can urinate near the hole to evaporate and reclaim the water lost in urination. ~Lilrofl
