Wow. The drive to Bloomer was a long one. We had a car full too. :) My son, my 2 friends and the one friend's 2 kids came along for the ride. I was happy for the company, but it was still a drive. Worth it, though.

After that LONG drive we arrived and Erica welcomed us into her home. ALL her babies were adorable! So...of course I couldn't decide when ones to get and they were a LOT smaller than I'd expected. It was my first time seeing mice outside of a pet shop and I guess I had no idea what size to expect for young mice. I picked up all the ones I liked and thought, "Oh heck!" and took them all. :D hehehe... After all they are pretty tiny.

In the car on the way home they looked a bit car sick. At one point I thought the one wasn't doing well, but found out she was just trying to sleep. :roll: I have never seen a mouse sleep, so I just didn't realize what she was doing. Oops. :oops: Eventually they all went to sleep.

We got them home and put them into one ten gallon. I know people said 3 to 4 per 10 gallon, but they are still so small I think they'll be fine for now. I did find out they are extremely hard to photograph well. They don't look right in pictures and look about 2X their actual size. :(

So here's a couple of pics and the rest are videos... ... 0_5877.mp4 ... 0_5878.mp4 ... 0_5880.mp4 ... 0_5879.mp4

Yeah, a new mouse mommy! I love them, and I'm really glad you took them all!!!
Well, after we got there it was seemed like we'd driven SOO far. I couldn't go home with just 3.
Very cute! I love the satin one. :D

(That wheel will be too small once they are full grown. )
Thanks. :mrgreen: I didn't know that about the wheel. They've ignored it so far anyways. I have a lot of other fun stuff for them to do.
