    We've had a number of mice come in from an owner struggling to rehome them privately. We've more groups due in from other sources.

    These girls are all under 6 months, I suspect 4 original mums with their babies and perhaps some that were already rehomed privately.

    Olive - black and white - semi long hair - tame

    Clove - black - semi long hair - very tame

    Jasmine - Black and tan - semi long hair - tame - RESERVED

    Nutmeg - black and tan - semi long hair - tame

    Ginger - fawn and white - short hair - very tame - RESERVED

    Kiwi - browny and white splodgy - semi long hair - tame

    Saffron - Lilac - short hair - tame

    Peach - Fawn - long hair - very tame - RESERVED

    Cherry - dark agouti - short hair - very tame - RESERVED

    Apple - PEW - short hair - tame but squeaky
    [​IMG]

    Sage - Blue - long hair - almost tame and squeaky - RESERVED

    Anise - browny splodgy - short hair - handleable, needs more taming

    All girls on pregnancy watch until the 29th November but are available for reserve. Please email scritches@live.co.uk for an application form.

    Wasabi will be neutered before homing but is available for reserve as above.

    We are expecting babies from these girls and we are also expecting further groups of mice in, so if you don't see any that catch your eye, stay tuned! Don't forget we will likely have groups of boys and are expecting a further two single boys who will be neutered before rehoming.

    Reservations are going fast, please note we can only reserve once we have your application form back. Previous adopters can reserve straight away. First come, first serve.

    We are also operating a waiting list for anyone who would like mice not pictured yet. Please let us know.

    Mice are to be rehomed as at least pairs, single neutered males to be rehomed with intent to introduce them to girls or rehomed with a pair of girls from us. Neutered boys do best with at least two girlfriends.

    On ocassion, neutered boys can live with single entire males who can't be castrated for some reason. Please let us know if you need help with this sort of introduction as not all are successful.

    All the adults pictured above have been reserved.

    The girls have been moved into the metre long zoozone so they have space to give birth as a group. All are still doing well :)

    More mice due in by the end of the month
