HOW TO BOND WITH YOUR MICE!

I hope this video is somewhat helpful to you if you’re currently trying to bond with your mice, or thinking of getting mice in the future! I’ve had it pretty easy as my mice came from a breeder so were already quite friendly and wanted to interact with me, just remember that every mouse is different and will take different amounts of time to become comfortable with being handled!

    shout out to fancy mice

  2. Madeline Archer on May 24, 2020 at 11:55 pm

    Ok, know this is an older video, but 2020 has been crazy and I have a cute mouse story. I have two fancy mice named Sunny and Birch. They came from a pet store, but they were weeks old and they were the cutest little sisters. Sunny is more like Pearl; literal hours after I but her into her cage, I went to fix something in the cage, and Sunny started sniffing out my hand. I had a mouse before, so I knew to keep my hand still will she was exploring me. I got her to sit in my hand and she started climbing up my arm. I was not ready for her trust in me so quickly and started freaking out a little bit. She got nervous and started climbing in my hair and onto my other arm. I finally was able to get a little bit of a better control and was able to get her back in her cage. Afterward, she still loves to sit in my hand, but hasn’t gotten farther than that.

    This was helpful, but what are you talking about with that "poor genetics?" Like what does that even mean? Mice do not exist for the entertainment of their caretakers, and you should respect all mice no matter what their level of comfort is around you!

    Those "poor genetics" are a result of millions of years of being prey! "Poor genetics" is something made up by people who cannot handle that animals come in different forms.

    My mouse tries to nibble on my nails it’s so strange I don’t quite know why

    I’m getting my mice a secure play pen next month, and they will finally be able to have an hour of out-of-cage- playtime each day! I don’t want them to free roam, since we haven’t bonded and I’m not comfortable picking them up yet, and I have a crazy cat and a playful puppy, I don’t want them sneaking under my door and getting hurt. I’m hoping that I can try to bond with them enough to pick them up comfortable by the time the play pen gets here, but that probably won’t work out as planned 😅 I’ll just have to be patient. My mice are pretty explorative, they enjoy exploring new things whenever I clean/change their cage set up. They have gotten more explorative of my hand, they always want to sniff it and explore it, but I’m scared of being bit. It’s one of the reasons I haven’t officially tried bonding to them. I owned a hamster before, she didn’t like me and bit me a lot, which gave me a bad perspective. I know it doesn’t hurt too much, but I don’t want to injure myself or the mice. I’ll get there! I trust that one day I can hold my mice and let them explore safely. I’m excited for that day 😌 next week I’m setting up a schedule for my school life, and I’m gonna incorporate bonding with the mice in there 😌

    My first ever mice were from a pet store, but I was young and didn’t know about it. I did also one get 2 mice and kept them in a small cage from the pet store. I didn’t know better but now I do! Most of the pets I see from the pet store or skittish and sometimes even aggressive. My mice from the pet store were really social and curious after a few weeks of getting them used to me. Their names were Mikey (Named by my brother although it was a female) and Hershey (Named by me ^^) they used to sit in my pockets and walk all over me. If I put them down they would follow me around. I do miss them! They only lived for about a year though.
    So I decided I’m going to get more mice! I am going to get a HUGE cage for about 5 females. I am going to try to find a good homemade recipe I can give them, but for now I’m going to find them a nice and healthy nugget food till I can get them a better diet. I’m also going to give them more toys and stuff than I did before. Something my mice used to love was paper towel tubes! (Cheap tunnel for mice, as long as it’s clean and free some scented products).
    I’m getting my little angels around August. Right now and for the next two months I’m going to preparing for them. I have two names picked out, my two friends and my brother are going to name the other three. Babi for one and Moose for the other. Moose of course named after little Moose that recently passed away.
    I know this comment was long, but I just wanted to share what I am planning for my new mice care. ^^

    My mouse hides all the time from me :c. He hides behind his wheel. Today he did cone out to run on his wheel though. Tips?

  8. JustAshy47 on May 25, 2020 at 12:08 am

    I got two mice and they’re absolutely terrified of me! I’ve been trying to feed them treats and talk to them but every time I open their cage they sprint around trying to hide. I feel so bad for scaring them. How should I get them to trust me?

  9. ReadyNolo on May 25, 2020 at 12:08 am

    My mouse bites me every time I put my hand in the cage to put her food in or even if my hand is just sitting there, I wash my hands every time before I put my hand in the cage and I talk to her. What do I do?

  10. TakeAShowerPickle on May 25, 2020 at 12:08 am

    My mice are from a pet store. The owner was dragging them by the tails and they where screaming and running away. He said that they where 1 yr old but they where only 2 weeks old. They are all girls and you cant see there nipples yet. they are so tiny. We reported the owner and he got charged with multiple animal abuse. its really scary but the mice where very kinda and sweet after a few months. They died a few years ago and now i never go to pet shops anymore cus it scares the crap out of me! 😂😤😡

  11. Lizzy G on May 25, 2020 at 12:09 am

    So happy to have found this video! Could you make one to explain "mice body language"? Thanks!!

  12. Cap Oretti on May 25, 2020 at 12:09 am

    I was sooooooo devastated when I found out that you can’t get hamsters in Australia. But then I remembered Victoria Raechel was talking about your channel and how you have rats and mice, now I really want to get some female mice!

  13. Isabella Chalmers on May 25, 2020 at 12:10 am

  14. Raymond Jakeman on May 25, 2020 at 12:10 am

  19. Piper Jean on May 25, 2020 at 12:17 am

    4:10 why is there a mouse in the background ?

  23. Horse on May 25, 2020 at 12:21 am

    I desperately needed this because my mouse Oscar just birds my hand and runs away, also is it normal that he poops A LOT. Like it’s kind of weird how often he poops. And I’ve tried putting my hand in flat but he bites my hand, runs, confess back, bites it, and repeats it 🙁 he just runs from me and won’t take food from me

  24. Katie Adam on May 25, 2020 at 12:21 am

    Thank you so much! One of my mice is very timid and I haven’t known how to handle him.

  30. Jackson 83 on May 25, 2020 at 12:27 am

    The only hands-on experience i have ever had with mice is saving them from the clutches of my cat. Thankfully it’s rare and the vast majority are uninjured. My housemates are scared of them but i happily pick them up by hand and carry them outside to safety – even if they sometimes bite me (i know they are just scared). I really love mice and i would love to adopt some as pets one day. I think they are just so cute.

  31. Kitty Cripps on May 25, 2020 at 12:28 am

    I have 3 new mice and one of them might be pregnant and another keeps shaking.
    Is there anything I can do to help both of them?

  32. Quinn Snedden on May 25, 2020 at 12:29 am

    I’m still trying to convince my mom to let me get a mouse 😩

  33. Sunset and Spark on May 25, 2020 at 12:29 am

    I want a mouse

  34. Rachel Eisenberg on May 25, 2020 at 12:29 am

    I’ve had my mouse for about three months and he still won’t let me pick him up and won’t crawl on my hand 😢😢. I stick my hand in and give him a treat every night, but he still doesn’t like me enough. Any tips, or am I just a bad owner?

  35. Burntsocks :p on May 25, 2020 at 12:30 am

    I have 1 male mouse I know you need more for socializing but I don’t want them to fight what should I do please help
    Edit: I also let him out regular I let him crawl and explore by me and in his ball he loves crawling in my hand to come out of his cage right now he’s eating by my hair

  36. Kaden Bee on May 25, 2020 at 12:30 am

    i live by a petstore that is extremely reliable. its a small business and they donate a lot of money to rescues and they arent a chain petstore and they give actual correct care advice for animals and will try to talk people out of buying things that are bad for animals. i love this store and they have a bunch of mice that look super healthy and happy and ive been interested in mice for almost a year. in this case do you think itd be okay to get them from there?

  37. Emma Frank on May 25, 2020 at 12:31 am

    so my mouse soybean ever since as a baby is very aggressive. when i got him from a store, which i now realize maybe i shouldn’t—he was a feeder mouse. however, his behavior has always been off. it’s funny because he recognizes his name and will come greet me, he loves interacting with me from afar, but touching is still a no go

  38. • Crescent_SunsetAnimations • on May 25, 2020 at 12:33 am

  40. Kevin McAllister on May 25, 2020 at 12:36 am

    Idk if my male mouse isn’t hungry but he doesn’t take any treats and I’ve given him natural and not natural types of treats, he also is fine with me when in a carrier but he’s scared of me when he’s in his 400 square inch cage, please help lol

  41. • Crescent_SunsetAnimations • on May 25, 2020 at 12:37 am

    How old should mice be to be able to get one? I want to get young ones so I can have quite some time with them.

  42. kaiti elyssa on May 25, 2020 at 12:37 am

    can you keep a mouse by itself?

    I got my two little girls yesterday (from a pet store), and when I put my hand in for them to get used to it they kept on biting. What should I do?

  45. Erin Lucas on May 25, 2020 at 12:41 am

  46. Kiki Pokorná on May 25, 2020 at 12:41 am

    My mice came from a pet store and were really scared at first but after a while they would curl up in my hand and let me pet them and sometimes even lick my hand

  47. immyimmi on May 25, 2020 at 12:44 am

    I have a mouse called Lychee and she’s been SO friendly from day 1. She licks my fingers and climbs all over me. She is a self dove 😍

  48. Maya Rosa on May 25, 2020 at 12:47 am

  49. XxLaynaXx -Roblox on May 25, 2020 at 12:50 am

    Me and my two younger brothers got mice a few days ago. One of our mice named Jaxie, is very wild and doesn’t like hands. This should come in handy for her 🙂
