If anyone wants my mice, I've decided to put them up for grabs.<br><br>
There are four of them and they are all female.<br><br>
Two were socilaized before I got them and they are more aloof and two were socilized by me and they are more playful and outgoing.<br><br><br><br>
I really feel like if I'm unemployed again ( goddess I hate saying that word and thanks a lot screw with my mind unreliable job) I feel obiliged to attend the wedding of my cousin in MI. Plan changes on their end, they will not longer be going to OH and they have shorted the trip to one week.<br><br><br><br>
Still I don't feel comfortable leaving mice alone in my appartment for even one week, mostly because my appartment sometimes overheats terribly, yeah I could leave the windows open but then I might get robbed and I've been through that before.<br><br><br><br>
My mom said I can give the mice to their housesitter, but the housesitter doesn't like me anymore therefore I don't think they'd be safe there.<br><br>
The housesitter was visiting once and talking about things I find offensive/hurtful ( Pro patriarchial ), I asked them nicely to stop, but they refused so I told them to shut up. I have suffered a lot because of sexual discrimination so pro patriarchial discussions are hurtful to me.<br><br>
Because I told them to shut up and stop talking about their pro patriarchial issues in my presence, they dislike me.<br><br>
Apparently asking someone to stop discussing something you find hurtful is rude.

Another idea, so I guess I found a way to be keeping 'em: Huzzah.<br><br><br><br>
I don't have to have my parents housesitter who hates me do anything with my mice. I move to the mice to my parents' house and just leave them one weeks' worth of food and water. Since my parents' house doesn't overheat like my appartment they should be ok.<br><br><br><br>
Since aquariums are difficult to relocate, especially ones setup natural style, even an empty 30 gal is a handful, this would mean that both sets of mice both myco negative and myco positive would have to live together in my other 30 gal.<br><br><br><br>
Ahhhh...conflict resolving. That said since I've made a choice, I need to start making the new plans of moving the mice, packing for the trip I will now be going on. Assuming it's not too late to change my mind to attend the wedding. And hopefully the new job I applied to yesterday might be mine by the time I return.

They're living in 2 different 30-gallon-capacity tanks now? I've never kept mice as pets, but that seems like plenty of room. Apart from their catching myco from each other, though, if they've been living separately you might want to leave them in 2 pairs instead of 1 group of 4. I'd worry about them starting to fight while I was gone. But like I say, I've never had pet mice, and you know your pets.<br><br><br><br>
I wouldn't want to leave them alone for a week either. I hope your parents will just check on their water supply every day or two.

Yes my feeder mice were in a 30 gal and my lab mice were in a 20 gal. One tank in my bedroom and one in my living room.<br><br><br><br>
I hope not because they are together now. Too bad I didn't get your message earlier. I hope I have not doomed them just to attend my cousins wedding. I was going to let them play and then put the lab mice back in their tank, but given their aloof behavior I was unable to catch them in nature tank.<br><br><br><br>
I decided it would be too difficult to move even an empty 30 gal to my parents house and was repairing a 20 gal(It has a cracked bottom) at my parents house.<br><br>
The aquariums left in storage at my parents have gotten cracked and damaged. I am glad I have most of my aquariums at my appartment because my parents have broken two five gals, one twenty gal and two ten gals.<br><br><br><br>
Should I remove them and leave one pair at my apparment?.

mixing your myco negative mice with myco positive mice is going to be a death sentence for them.</div>

I am sorry but putting them together was not the best idea.
