When I moved into my apartment, I had absolutely no intention of bringing in any other pets aside from Brando and Nayner (my kingsnake, who I will introduce sometime soon hopefully!). If you've been here before, you may have seen my Creature Feature post on Sprinkles and know that I soon set aside that intention. Before I even got Sprinkles though, I couldn't resist the temptation and decided to get a pair of mice. I've always been this way. I have the toughest time saying no to bringing home animals! It's a curse! Sadly, after just a couple of weeks, the other mouse died mysteriously. I have no idea what happened-everything seemed fine! I've had Dolores for quite a while now, and she's as healthy and happy as ever. Mice do well in groups of at least two, and I'd like to get her a gal pal so that she'll have someone to play with. Hopefully soon!
Tidbits about Dolores:
- She's named after "Big Dolores" from Hope Floats.
- She loves frozen blueberries and millet.
- She used to not be interested in running on her wheel-but she's on it a LOT now.
- She doesn't like to be held, but she'll come to you while she's in her house and will eat from your hand. She's very curious.
I was previously accepting guest post for the Creature Feature series, but am currently not accepting any at this time. If I decide to offer guest posts for this feature in the future I will certainly let you all know :)
