my mice had babies cuz a wild mouse got into the cage, two of them got pregnant and had babies, one of them had nine, but she died for no apparent reason, all her babies survived, and i sold them to the petshop yesterday!
but the lady at the petshop said they were feral cuz i hadnt touched them enough, so i tried to play with the second litter, but they just keep biting and jumping, i think i should have touched them at an earlier age, even thought the vet said not to, because then they wouldnt be so jumpy!
Also the mother of my second litter is very sick, i have to give her medecines and hand feed her n stuff, also she started off with 10 babies and now she only has five!!
i dont know what to do this is all so overwhelming!
how can i tame my babies without them jumping or biting?

if your mouse is bleeding, you should either take her to the vet or have her put down, because she.. or he would be in a lot of pain!
Theres a website i found that shows you how to painlessly kill your mouse if it is sick, i had to do it to two of my mice when they had tumors!
i think that if he/she is bleeding out their eyes and nose, then they are probably dying! im sorry. poor little thing.

i gassed them :(

You might want to clean the cage more. Also, replace the food every few days but they always need food in their cage. And keep new mice isolated for a while. That way they can't get other mice sick. Try just buying from a different pet store, too.

Dear Macymay,what are u useing for bedding, some things can kill mice, like saw dust or news papper. u may want to look up some more things mice are alergic to, also do u give it plenty on proten (eggs or chicken can do) vidomins (mineral salt and veggies) and some times dry cat/dog food will do the trick. Good Luck.

Ps were did u get the mice at, and how big is the cage, also how many mice are with it. i might be able to help.

hey, my mouse is acting strange also. she's getting kinda fat, but i dont think shes pregnant cuz its been over a month since ive had her, and she lives with another female.. since i got her she always seemed shy and wouldnt let me near her, and just recently shes been breathing pretty oddly..
i'm afraid something is wrong with her..

you should not bring wild animals as pets. if u want a pet mouse its better to have a domesticated mouse (pet mouse)
I have a possum and a mouse both wild. me and my friend found the mouse and it was hurt and weak and my dad found the possum on the road and they are both pretty young. i believe that you should not have like big animals and wild ones that are like lions or something. but i think that when you are helping an animal like what me and my friend are doing is okayy. and i Love animals and if i cannot let the possum go then i will try and find it a good place where it can go! but i will prob keep the mouse.

--not quoting anything--
i hope that everybodys problems are solved.. and i think that if you find a lost or hurt animal and if your young and your parents say its okayy or if you are however old you should help it in anyway that you can and then if you can set it free than yea you can do that too!

Peace Ya'll! and God Bless!

Okay, so my mouse is acting really strange. Her name is Daisy and she just recently started to just sit in the corner of the cage and could barely open her eyes. Now today, she isn't opening her eyes at all and she isn't moving much at all, but she is still breathing. She was also acting like this yesterday, she has a normal breathing "pattern", and I haven't even had her for a year. Daisy won't eat, and I've been worried.
