You can neuter him. If you did that then he could also go in with the females so he can have some friends (do not put him in with another male, almost all males will eventually fight to death). If neutering is not an option, it might help if you put his cage away from other animals to slow his need to let all the other pets know what is his by marking. Also, when cleaning his cage, leave something he marked or a lump of soiled bedding in the cage after cleaning. Sometimes it works because the male will smell his sent in the cage and not feel the need to mark so much.

Good luck! I love mice, I have had many many of the little guys. :)

Bettas - Giovanni (HM), Burly (HMPK Giant).

Awww I had two girl mice once. I don't know if it was just mine but they were either peeing or pooping every five minutes, and I never wanted them out long..

taking a break from fish-keeping.

They do piddle and poop a lot. I'm so used to being marked by various animals that I reckon I could handle it now, though.

I'm glad rats aren't as mess-prone as mice.

If she ever met a rat, she'd change her mind. ;) I took my biggest boy Hyde to church because he couldn't be left alone after his operation, and so many people came up and met him and were absolutely delighted with how relaxed and friendly he was. You just need a good PR rat. ;)
