Does the animal have rescue back up?: Yes
Location: Annesley Woodhouse, Nottinghamshire
Number of animals: 3
Type/Breed/Variety: Fancy Mice
Age(s): Born 18th Sept 14
Name(s): Parsley, Dill & Fennel
Colours: Champagne & white, Grey & white satin, light dove grey
Neutered: Due to be neutered in 2-3 weeks, then will need another 3/4 weeks before they can join females.
Reason for rehoming: Owner was mistakenly sold a male mouse with three females and ended up with unwanted litters.
Temperament: Very active and friendly boys, but still a bit nervous. Fennel is the most outgoing (dove grey) but all three are generally quite laid back and should soon get accustomed to being handled.
Medical problems: None known.
Will the group be split (if applicable): Possibly, as long as they can join other mice.
Transport available: Possibly, if adopted locally (Notts or Derbys)
Other: A lot of people overlook male mice, mainly due to their musky smell from scent marking, but also because they have a reputation for aggression with other males. Please note that neutered boys lose their scent marking habits within a couple of weeks of being neutered and once their hormones have settled they can be kept in large mixed groups with no problems. We are always happy to give advice on keeping/introducing neutered boys.
