I don’t know what else to do I don’t trust putting a hand warmed under her house without a doubt she’d mange to eat that as well. Any ideas??

    About three weeks ago I bought two female fancy mice from the local petshop. They have a very large cage equipped with toys, houses etc. They seem very happy and get along very well. The only problem I have is that one of the females is extremely aggressive. To the point where I could be walking past the cage and she tries to bite me. She's drawn blood many times and I respond by gently giving her a little flick not to hurt her but to try and teach her that it's not ok to bite. I never try and grab them. The most I do is lay my hand palm up with they're favourite food in the middle to let them get accustomed to me and crawl on my hand on their own accord. I always wash my hands before handling so they don't smell of food and I never feed them with my fingers or put my finger any where near them. It's gotten to the point where even if I'm filling up their food she will race down from the third story of her cage and try and bite my wrist or fingers. She will even race at the bars of the cage if she sees me walk past and if I'm close enough will try and bite me. Unfortunately it's gotten to the point where I'm scared to even clean their cage and the other female (whom I never had a problem with before) is beginning to bite. I spent over $100 on a fully decked out three story cage and toys and food and treats and I love my mice but it's gotten to the point where I'm afraid I'll have to get rid of them. This is my last chance.

  • Should I get another guinea pig?

    Best answer: Adding another piggie would hardly be any more work or expense if you already have them and a roomy cage. Just the cost of the piggie and another dollar a month for supplies you buy anyway. A(few) fish would be fine bit the initial costs can take a bite out of a budget. Check with your local animal rescue and see... show more

    Check with your local animal rescue and see if they have any piggies, those are usually cheaper than pet store sort.

  • Mouse not scared of me?

    I don't know why, but I saw a mouse at the bedroom, so I went to it but it didn't get scared and run, it just stared at me like a he is confused. (Of course i'm not going to touch it) But i went closer and he still didn't run away like any mouse will. Why is that?
