Mice and Rats OH MY
I am a mouse and rat person, going to list off what I have and what I have had. Also a means to chat with other rodent people and show you all my rodents. Right now I will just put my list because I have to find some good pics of my girls first.
Two female black hooded, standard ear, standard coat.
Filistata and Belladonna (alive)
Ophelia (PEW female, deceases 3 years of age)
Verona (augoti, broken banded, female deceased 3 years of age)
Coraline (black and tan, standard coat, female, deceased 2 years of age)
Lolita (PEW, standard coat, female, deceased, 2 years of age)
Alice (broken augoti, 1 year, with my cousin)
Helen (black broken angora, Alice's sister, with Alice)
Tesla (deer mouse, male, deceased, 2 years)
Those are my rodents from other the years. I normally like to keep a clan of 3 to 5 females and have kept one male mouse solitary. If you have questions about mice or rats ask me. I study both species and have been researching proper care and genetics since my dream is to open a mousery/ratery in my 50's. I'll put up pictures of some of my girls. They are all petshop so nothing too fancy but Ophelia did have beautiful conformation. Unfortunately she also had cancer as well which took both Verona and she from me recently after 3 wonderful years with them. My other two mice couldn't make the move to Texas so they currently live with my cousin, and my rats moved to Texas with me and run my life...literally.
