Why your new mouse needs some space
You have decided to look after a new mouse and you can’t wait to bring her home. You’d like to get to know her right away. Will she be receptive to interacting with you right from the start?
While this may be an exciting time for you, it is likely a bit of a scary one for your pet. She doesn’t yet know that you are going to care for her and she is being brought into an unfamiliar place. Pushing her to interact right away may scare her more, so it’s best to give her a bit of space to check things out on her own first. Caring for her will show her that you are someone she can trust so she will be ready to interact with you in the near future once she has calmed down a bit. For additional information, please contact your local Cy-Fair vet.
