Very sad. You need to use locking tank tops or bricks or something to secure the tops. Snakes can be quite strong and cunning. Sorry for your loss.
I had a wild snake come in the house last year just to eat my birds. He ate my two best breeding Canarys, and my male strawberry finch. I ordered his head to be chopped off. :| I really hated doing that, but I figured if I released him outside he'd just come back, knowing what yummy snacks were waiting inside.

Lime, so sorry to hear about your little mouse.

Thank you everybody! As far as the snake - he has clips, but apparently is strong enough to pop them off, so we're buying a better method tonight and he's got a wealth of dictionaries and text books to contend with for the time being (and a belly full of mice). It's just one of those things that comes with owning lots of animals - sometimes they don't get along. :\

Jack - I'm in no mood to be told to start over, sorry to be blunt. I am poor because I already have invested around 300 or so on bottles, cages, drawers, bedding, etc., and because I just lost my job. I am fully aware of the cost of mice, as I've been keeping them for years. I will not be able to afford "quality" stock for a long time, but refuse to believe that these are inferior. They came from a breeder too, you know, just one who sold to the pet store. I'll buy show mice when I have another job, okay?

Thanks everybody for the advice, I'm pretty bummed about this. :cry:
It'll get better. You'll replace the cage top and he won't get out again, so no more free mice treats for him!
Try not to get down, set backs happen to everyone.

Just an update - I had put the little mouse on Tylosin, since no other antibiotics were readily available, and she is showing a lot of improvement. I'm waiting to celebrate until the whole course is finished, because I've seen some critters look like they're getting better and then bite the dust, but in the meantime I'm pretty excited for her.

Fingers crossed! :)
Mine too! Good Luck!
