    sadly i am needing to rehome my 4 mice, they come with a 3 foot tank with a stand if you want it, exercise wheel, 4 exercise balls which they love to zoom around the kitchen in, toys in the tank, bowl and bottle. i keep them on wood pellets so they are less likely to suffer respiratory problems, and all 4 are happy and healthy.they are very friendly, and have never bitten, my 4 and 5 year old daughters handle them aswell. 4 different colours, 1 light brown and white, 1 black and white, 1 darker brown with white flecks and 1 longer haired black and white. all less than a year old, they were unwanted pets when i took them in a while ago, and now they need a new forever home as we are having problems :(

    if you wish to just take on the 4 mice they are free to loving home only, no snake food etc, and i dont want them taken to a new home in a tiny tank,they love to race around their 3 foot tank and explore. if you wish to take the full set-up, i am looking for around £25ono.

    im just keeping my fingers crossed someone can offer these 4 lovely girls the home they need, we live at hemswell cliff in lincolnshire, not far from lincoln and gainsborough.

    just a quick add on that its more important we get the right home for them than we get the full amount of money, but would like a bit back to cover some of the costs of the tank and stuff they come with :)

    would love to but you are too far away and to be onest with 18 baby snakes in my room at the moment, along with 6 hamsters, 6 leaf insects, a tarantula and a male mouse at the moment. i think its best i say no as havin mammals on one side of room and snakes on the other is a bit of a miss mash lol

    lovely girls though.
    hope you find a great home for them

    :D and i thought i was bad lol, bless them, the snakes would spend all day picking out which one they want for tea ;)

    im willing to take less for the whole set-up as i just want to find them a new home, £15 ono, but they must go to a good new home :)

    thats such a shame cherrie, it seems no-one is interested around here :(

    i dont want to offer them as free to good home mainly because im sure someone who doesnt really want them would come to get them just for the tank and stand, who knows where my girls would end up! thats why im trying these sites where animal lovers are more likely to see them rather than other freeads type sites where anyone may see them and take them for the hell of it. if im sure they are going to a great new forever home, id be tempted to let them go for free, though as we are skint obviously any money is better than nothing too.

    snakes are wonderful pets, my friend used to have 2 rescued corn snakes, 1 died (swallowed a mouse sideways,well tried, and permanently damaged its own mouth :eek:ut:) but her other one is still going strong, the only thing i couldnt deal with is the smell, for me its just too much when they pee/poop all in one whatever that mess is :eek: i couldnt believe how fast the smell spread in just the few minutes while they were cleaning it out of the tank. also i dont really like the idea of keeping something that is longer than the tank it lives in, i know they are bendy etc, but surely every once in while it must be nice to just stretch out :) good luck with rehoming all your babies though.

    as for my meeces, if the right person comes along, and im assured they are taking them to give them their forever home,like ive posted on the all about mice forum, il be ok with them being taken for free with their set-up, at least then il know they will be happy in a good sized home for the rest of their lives too. what im dreading is someone coming along, saying they will take them and their set-up and then getting rid of the mice just so they have a nice little set-up for something they really want. or am i just being paranoid :confused:

    no your not being paranoid at all, its always worrying trying to find a new home for an animals tht you love and have spent soooo much time with. i would suggest trying to find someone who already has mice so you know that they are interested in the mice and not the housing they are in.

    i understand what you mean about the housing for snakes but i usually advice people to get an encloousure that is slihtly smaller e.g. 4ft tank for 5ft snake. but it has to have lots for them to climb on ect. also snakes can strech out as when you think about it as they keep going straight they are doing each part of the body (if you get that) lol

    anyway enough about my snakes lol i really hope you find a good home for these mice, wish i could have had them sorry

    just a quick add on, im not up for my mice to be mixed into a bigger group in another tank, or taken on and having more mice added to their colony, im letting them go with their set-up so they can live out their lives in a plenty of space. ive had one woman get in touch about them, and she wants to put my 4 girls into a 4 foot tank with a load of others, then use their tank for a batch of boys she needs a bigger home for. :mad: my girls are used to having their own space and room to run around without running into a load more mice along the way. sorry to sound like im ranting but i put in my ads i want them to go in their own tank purely so they can continue to enjoy the life they already enjoy. thinking of keeping them now, just as i dont want them to go to someone who doesnt care :(

    :( just been let down by someone who really wanted them but then turned out to be in the US :confused: guess she wasnt looking at what sites she was visiting, wasnt until we had sorted that she really wanted them (and she sounded ideal as she had 1 tank with 2 mice in and wanted a few more as she really loves the mice she has but would have kept them separate) that she asked what state i was in, and that she hadnt heard of where im from before :( so these 4 are still available for a new forever home. im happy to let them go for free with their tank and all accessories if anyone is interested :)
