    i am rehoming my 4 does in their 3 foot tank with all their accessories, including 4 mini-exercise balls, toys and stuff in the tank, and any food we have left.

    i am being extremely picky about who gets my lovely girls, as i have been offered various homes already, but none with what im looking for. i am wanting them to stay exactly as they are, to be kept in their current 3 foot set-up, with no extra mice added to their group, and them not to be taken out for mixing into another group. no breeding either.

    i dont feel this is a lot to ask, but the 3 people who wanted to mix them with other mice all wanted to as a 3 foot tank 'can' house more mice. i personally feel that with the 4 of them, this tank is full, they love their space and have room to race around. i want them to continue to enjoy their current life style :D i have also been asked by a couple to take the mice, to mix with their females, only to use my girls tank for a different group of mice. if you are wanting to do this, dont get in touch, their tank is only for them.

    i am giving all of this away for free, which is another reason i am being so picky, a few people seem to just want to 'dispose' of my girls to use the tank for another animal etc.

    at the moment they are living on p@h wood pellet cat litter to avoid respiritory problems arising from woodshavings, i dont mind if their new owner wishes to use wood shavings, its just my personal preference to use the pellets. they are on p@h mouse mix, and have little bits of veg every now and again as a treat.

    they are all different colours, and are all easily handled, lovely and tame. i will attach photos of each of them to this post.

    My beautiful girls :)

    I would love to offer them a home, as I have loads of mousey experience, and keep them all together in their 3 ft setup, but sadly you live to far from me :(

    no not yet, maybe im being way too picky, but i just want the best for them so i would rather keep them than give them away and maybe leave them to a questionable new home :)

    its becoming more urgent that i rehome these girls, i dont wish to go into detail but everyone knows the current financial climate :( really need them to go to a new home soon. maybe i shouldnt be so picky about who gets them, i dont know, but i just want them to enjoy life. a snake owner offered to take them on last week :confused: what part of live out their lives as they are now did she not understand. needless to say i definately declined her offer :mad:
