If their brought up together never leaving they would. But they would soon forget when they mature all they would want do do is mate.
If their taken away for a whilst then reintroduced they defiantly wouldn't. They would just mate (depending on the gender of the mouse of corse)
You should allow the mouse to suck or lick them off the end of eye dropper. Do not force the liquid. It may also suck them off the end of you )clean) finger or suck it out of the end of (clean) soaked cotton.
Face the facts. Natural Selection. Put the poor thing out of it's misery.AnswerTake it to the vet if it stands a chance of survival. AnswerSome vets won't do anything, My cat bought in a wild baby mouse, fortunately it wasn't injured, I phoned the vets to see what to do and all they could say was put it back into the wild - I was furious as it was live bait for another animal to harm. We kept it warm, and fed it, and its still alive which is more than it would have been if it was up to our vet!! AnswerCats catch mice for "sport". They don't have any real desire to eat them (normally), and often catch them and present them to their owner as a "gift". Often the mice will be relatively unharmed. If completely unharmed, (and you can get it away from the cat), DO release it back to the wild, it is the only place a wild mouse should and would want to live. If the mouse is injured, unfortunately you probably won't have much luck with vets who "have to draw the line somewhere..." So the same applies. The only other option, is to keep the mouse as a pet, research this, and feed and care for it as you would a pet mouse. But the wild mouse will *still* be unhappy, and will try and escape by any means...
My cats caught a family of mice living in our basement. They killed most of the babies, and the dad. The mom lived, but the mouse was only a few days old, and we had no way to get it to its mom. I took care of it personaly, making sure that it was eating. After it was old enough to take care of itself, I let it go. I know it was a risk, but it knew how to find food and water on its own. It probably has its own family now. If your cat catches an injured mouse, and the vet wont do anything to help, first make sure that none of the vets will help. There is more than one vet in your town I am almost sure. If not, try to take care of it as much as you can. Sometimes, it will heal completely on its own. If it does not heal completely, keep it as a pet. It will not be a hand- held pet, but more like a fish, cool to look at.
If you go to the pet store you will find mice for sale called "fancy mice" they come in many different colors and coat styles. Compared to most mice they are more calm and less likely to bite.
Whiskers on animals are very useful in helping determine where things are as the move around at night when they don't see as well. The whiskers will touch, say, the edge of the animal's hole, telling it where the hole is.
No, they don't eat field mice, they are they same size. They eat grubs and underground insects
A mice gestates for 21-22 days. By then you should see a significant growth in the stomach (swallowed a golf ball look or pear shaped). Your mouse may be taking food into her house and building a mound of tissues inside her home. Do not disturb your mouse in when you believe she is in the labor process. Have fun with the babies! :)
Yes. If they are cooked. My cats eats pees and carrots all the time!
It would be possible.. biut it has a very slim chance of that happening. The average lifespan of a rat would be from 1 to 3 years. 3 years if you are lucky.
you'd actually be surprised to know only 2 or 3 it takes 5 weeks to wean 1 litter and n only 36 hours of giving brith the female is once again in heat and if left with the male will get pregnant again
Steve is a good name for a male mouse.
Earl is also good.
jelly-bean is also a good name. but i used it for a gerbil.
Yes, mice do indeed burrow and do so in order to build their nests. Other animals that burrow include voles, chipmunks, and gophers.ayush
Baby mice can be sexually mature as young as three weeks, though it can happen a little later, too. You should leave the babies with their mom as long as possible, but definitely not more than four or five weeks, or you'll end up with a lot more babies! Girls can stay with their mom for as long as you keep them, but you'll need to put the boys in their own cage.
When (i) all four of the little guy's feet are pointing toward the sky and (ii) a mirror held up to his little nose doesn't become fogged, he's probably sick.
Salami or hot dog soaked in Anti freeze over 5 hours. place bait on trap and scattered around, make sure to count how many you place on your perimeter, if any of the bait are missing you've killed the rat plane and simple, anti freeze is VERY sweet, I've placed a bowl with hot dogs and anti freeze and in the morning i found 1 raccoon and 3 rats dead in my barn. i'd say cheepest method imo.
No, the male mouse will harm the babies if they are not old enough. I left my male mouse in the same cage when my female had babies, what I found was that she would only go near the babies when it was feeding time, other than that my male ( the father ) was the one to protect then when people put their hands in the cage and he would sit on them to keeo them warm it was so cute, also good for the babies as he is the size on a small rat. xXx LostNHopeless
4 toes and one thumb behind it but it is very hard to see clearly.
mice love to crawl threw tunnels and u must have something for mice the gnaw/chew on or their teeth will over grow and u have to take your mouse to the vet to get their teeth trimmed
first part is making it get used to your hand, just lay your hand in the container, and place a piece of cheese in the center of your palm, take out any other sources of food from the container, and be patient, after a little bit the mouse will get hungry, and your hand will not have made any sudden movements, so it will crawl onto your hand, (DO NOT TRY TO HOLD THE MOUSE, this could scar it and cause it to not trust you, after you have gotten the mouse in your palm, wiggle your hand a bit, it will most likely jump back, if it does, keep your had still, and when it gets back on your hand, wiggle your hand again, wiggling your hand will help your mouse get used to your hand moving around him/her. Then start holding cheese in your fingers out to the baby mouse, and then wait for it to nibble at the cheese your holding, also you could make like a play pen, like take a baby doll crib, or a real crib and let the mouse run around in it, and to transport him you could first put him in a cup and move him to the play pen for 15 minutes or so, and then move to your hand under a glass cup, then to your hand. the key is PATIENCE.
Yes, it is possible to be scared to death. There have been cases of people suffering cardiac arrest as a result for extreme fear.
You can put baby mice in with adult mice but it has to be their children for the adult mice to feed them.Yes, but you must be very careful. Try not to get to much of your scent on the baby mouse. Sneak the baby in, when the mother mouse is not looking. Only if the baby is about the same age as the ones that are originally the mothers children. You can easily tell by how much fur is on the pinkies, how big, and if their eyes are open. This does not always work, but it can. It depends on the mother, she will decide. Why trust me? I have bred mice for about a year and a half now and i am almost an expert.-experienced mouse breeder, owner, and lover
well most mice will eat most anything and i have a mouse and i feed him crumbs of bread and hamburger crumbs
so i hoped it helped
If you have a mouse that is properly housed in a cage or aquarium, it should be safe to keep as a pet. The considerations you should look at before keeping a mouse as a pet are the following:
They are probably about a week old. You can see pictures of a rat litter (very similar in development to mice) at http://www.noselicks.com/shirelings/ The pictures show the daily changes in a litter of pups as they grow from birth to a few weeks old.
