New Additions!

And soon to be many more!

Yesterday, I went to the petstore to pick up my first three female mice, brought them home, set them up in their cage, watched them play for awhile.. And lo and behold, one of them is pregnant! Though not immediately noticeable at the store, her baby bump is making itself very well known now, when she stretches as well as in pictures. Joy joy.

So for the time being, she has been separated from the other three girls and placed in a nursery tank until she either gives birth... or doesn't. It's hard to completely sure with such small creatures, but I'm confident enough to have separated her into her own tank.

Will keep you updated!

The preggers girl in question, Artemis.

Meet Milo!

Milo is my newest addition, a 3/4 mini rex 1/4 holland lop mix with a rex coat (and let me tell you, I love his rex coat, it's sooo soft to the touch.)

I got him at 8 weeks old, and he's now almost 10 weeks. He's doing amazingly well with litter box training, considering he's not neutered yet (he will be at six months) and eats, drinks, and plays like a champ. I was worried when I first brought him home, because he barely moved, but that's gone now and his personality has really started shining through. Needy and bossy, if you were wondering.

He had his first excursion from the cage today and he loved it! Racing around the room and investigating everything.

Balancing Act

Inspired by Buddy's balancing on the arm of the couch to get my attention if he thinks I'm ignoring him, I decided to see if I could get him to do that on other objects. Success!

Not sure when this could prove useful, but it's cute, right?
