    Hello,

    I recently purchased two mice, and I am going to be cleaning out their cage for the first time shortly, but I do not know where to put them whilst I clean their cage. I still have the box they were given to me from the pet store but it is very small and I do not want to cause them unnecessary stress.

    Would something like a shoe box be okay to put them in? or is there something I need to purchase specifically.

    Thank you!! :)

    I would worry a mouse might ping out of a bath, they are amazing jumpers.
    I always used to let the free roam the bedroom they were in but I put an old pair on jeans across the bottom of the door it was also only a single bedroom so not a huge cluttered space
