    Was scowering Gumtree as i do and saw 3 female mice free to good home.

    2 girls in 1 tank, 1 in the other tank, then i looked at the location, its in Whitburn, West Lothian:(, Why couldn't they be closer or why couldn't i be 17 and drive already. Hope someone can get them safe so they don't end up as snake food:(

    I never bother looking on gumtree/preloved/etc. There's way to many of these type of ads about.

    I sent the guy as message last night asking what age they were and how big the tanks were so i could figure where to put them for qaurintine as my dad said he would drive me but he sent no reply probably was annoyed that i asked if he drove to edinburgh:eek:

    Fingers crossed they go to another good home:)

    Well he just replied to me to say they were still available, but I cant reply to him till I know what the other person involved is planning as they have also contacted him and I dont want to throw a spanner in the works.

    Are you actually wanting them Peter or were you just taking them to stop them going anywere horrible? If this person from the mouse forum manages to get them I think shes taking them to stop them ending up as food so we might be able to arrange a mouse train if she doesnt want to keep them. This is all hyperthetical if we dont actually get them of course.

    Both really. I want to make sure they didn't go as food but i always wouldn't mind more mice, I wouldn't go out and buy anymore but i'd take these three. If a mouse train would be great:) If you get them of course

    I hope the little mice find a lovely new home. Stay away from Gumtree and Preloved, they're heartbreaking :(

    Hi there,
    Sorry to Hijack this thread just saw that you mentioned a mouse forum..
    I have 4 little fancy female mice here. Kept them after I fostered them because I was so worried where they would end up. I couldn't bring myself to put them on pre-loved or gum tree to worried where they would end up.. there's a thread on here with a few pics..
    Sorry being cheeky here but any chance you could put these on the mouse forum.
    If you can I will pm u the details....
    Thanks
    Samantha x

    ps I seem to have so many little furrie's at the moment.. I am not to confident when trying to find homes for small furrie's. Looking after 15, 9 day old Fancy Rats at the moment I bet I end up keeping loads of them myselfxx

    Hi Sammieanne, i don't know the mouse forum so can't help on the one, i'm sure TDM will help you:)

    Hi vet-2-b, If the the woman from the mouse forum gets them i will be able to take them as i'm a lot closer to get to, but thank you very much for the offer:p
