hello guys welcome back to my channel so

if you see my 20 things you should know

floating rats video today I wanted to

make one about lines good boy

so by no means is this a full on care

video it's important to know that if you

are thinking about getting my tea should

go and do your own research after

watching this video I just wanted to say

a few things that I thought were

important to know if you're considering

getting my sore feet already got -

already you have just stay with me for

this video

[Music]

this video will succinct put you off my

skin make really great pets but for the

right person so number one is that they

have a very short lifespan they have one

of the shortest lifespans of

domesticated rodents and it's about one

to two years of course you can get one

to live shorter than this or longer than

this but it is a very short lifespan so

you need to think about whether such a

short lifespan is something that you can

cope with number two is that they are

very delicate animals so their size and

fragility may not be something that will

make them great pets of very small

children number three is that generally

they are very active animals so if

you're looking for a pet to cuddle with

they're probably not the best pet for

you then before is that generally they

are most active during the evening so

you need to think about whether this is

something that will fit into your

lifestyle number five is that despite

the saying as quiet as a mouse lady can

make quite a lot of noise at nighttime

so if you're thinking about keeping them

in your bedroom you may want to

reconsider this if you're a light

sleeper and you don't want to be woken

up by the noise smearing of illnesses

number six is that they can develop

respiratory issues and linked in to this

is number seven and that is that you

need to be careful about what bedding

you use no one's going to have a

different preference of what betting

they prefer to use as long as you're

using a safe bedding that is just

extracted and preferably not pine or

cedar as they are the betting fishes so

you want to avoid bedding such as pine

or cedar

nobody is that females especially are

prone to tumors so you want to think

about having some money set aside if

this does occur putting figure back

because he is number nine is that mites

can sometimes enter a state of torpor

and this is similar to hibernation what

your worst like you find your mouse

lethargic in the corners a cage and this

can be caused by a food or water supply

more because the temperatures have drops

and your mouse has got extremely cold

now if you find your mouse like this you

want to get them as warm as possible and

the easiest way to do this is to hold

them against your own body warm

I'm you also want to try and get liquids

in them so it's important to have a

syringe on hand so you can search read

the water and try and get them back to

their usual state there were ten is that

my senior overweight very quickly so you

want to try and limit me up treat you

get them as long-term Utley this can

affect their quality of life

[Music]

no but eleven is that when it comes to

handing them you want to avoid picking

them up by their tail of course in some

situations if your mouse is in danger

and there's no other way to pick them up

the safest way to do this is to pick

them up on the base of the tail and not

the tip of the tail because you can

break their towel and ultimately cause

them harm

but I wouldn't recommend using this

practice to pick them up on a day-to-day

basis because

the day you're trying to bond with your

mouth and by picking it with a tail

you're not really gonna build that trust

that you need to have a good

relationship with your pet so number 12

is are we going to get me a lot of

comments in the comment section and that

is that I don't recommend you keep males

together now this is something that both

my friends who who was the owned mice

and breeders of my stuff recommend it to

me and this is because male mice are

extremely territorial now of course this

can be cases where male mice are

container and it works and this is made

most likely why they're being siblings

or where them having a large enough cage

they don't get territorial

now mice in the wild are naturally

territorial they will live a male that

protects his territory from other males

with some females but of course you

can't do this in your home environment

otherwise you'll end up with lots of

babies so you generally don't want house

males together unless you have another

cage set aside just because they do

start fighting and you have to separate

them but chances are they will fight on

into each other and talk to me they can

actually cause each other to die if you

haven't had a fixed story he actually

came from a place where the Buddha

didn't have enough cages to separate the

males and he was fighting with his own

siblings which has caused him to her a

piece of his ear missing and when he

came to me his tail was very scary from

injuries he received from his own

brothers so I generally don't advise you

go out and get two males unless you know

what you're doing

or unless you prefer to separate them as

soon as they start fighting

so number 13 is that mice are actually

very social animals so if you are

getting females you want to keep them in

groups of about 2 or 3 number 14 is that

if you are considering getting a male

Mouse be prepared for the smell males

smell a lot more than females and this

is because they set mark and I really

wasn't prepared about how much big

smells some people don't mind the smell

but Kirsty to me it's quite a musky

smell and it really like that

so if you are keeping them in your

budget be prepared for a small tip

builder and of course you can't use

things such as air fresheners or candles

because it will affect their spiritual

systems there were 15 is that they do

need a decent sized cage although the

small they are very active animals of

the need enough space to burn around and

males will need the same size cage as a

group of females because they are still

just as active so the recommended size

does differ depending on where you're

looking but it about 65 40 centimeters

is the minimum you want to be keeping

one man or two or three females so

number 16 is that the bar spacing of the

cage is also really important you don't

want anything bigger than a centimeter

because they're very good at squeezing

out of small spaces number 17 is that

you should keep it where in the cage but

the whales should be big enough for your

Mouse's back isn't arching because this

can cause problems with their spines and

ultimately your boss is gonna be

uncomfortable so you want to make sure

you get that wheel but it's big enough

for them and I'll leave the dimensions

here of an appropriately sized field and

you also don't really want to use wire

wheels because their feet can get stuck

in the mash number 18 is be prepared to

get poo done peed on this Murray doesn't

quite everyone at Sony since I've got

thick I've noticed that as he's got to

know me he's doing it less but he still

is a little poop machine as literally

wants up next me right now this is

tearing me in the face

so if there's not something you're

comfortable with maybe consider getting

something else but they do kind of just

go wherever they feel like you a number

19 is that they can be trained although

they're really small they are actually

really intelligent animals so you can

train that to do some different tasks

you can train

literature or you can train them to do

you like basic tricks and this is a fun

little project you can work on with your

minds and number 20 is that although

some people may think differently I

think that they are really cute and

personally I really enjoy having them as

a pet I find that they have great

personalities and they're really fun to

watch and they all make the right pet

for the right person so that is it for

20 things I wanted to tell you about

owning mice of course isn't everything

you need to know so please go ahead and

do your research after watching this

video if you do go ahead and get mice or

you've already got your mice already

enjoy them and we'll see you in our next

video
