So, as mentioned yesterday, we’ve taken in some more poorly mice. These are yet more mice from the welsh rescue who, like Elsa, Echo, Ellie, Eve and Edie were with a rescue which recently closed down. As before, we offered to take the special needs ones to join our cage of lumpy residents.

So from left to right we have Niobe, has two benign skin growths on her face and a small tumour in her armpit, Nixie who has a sore nose, Nahla, who has a skin tag on her eye and a tumour in her groin, Nelly, who appears to be ok apart from one of the typical skin tags that the welsh mice get and Niamh who has a large tumour on her side 😦

It makes me so sad to see such young mice with such bad health. I suspect we’ll probably only have the pleasure of Niamh’s company for another week or so before the time comes when it’s kinder to let her go. Nahla perhaps has a month with us. Niobe’s tumour I think may be removeable which hopefully will buy her some more time. Nixie needs checking by the vet to see what is wrong with her nose. Nelly looks as though she might be suitable for homing all being well.

So all we can do really is make them as happy as we can for as long as we can. So, with this in mind, I introduced them today to the rest of the big mixed group of mice.

and upgraded the whole crew to a nice big freddy cage

I will, of course, keep you posted as to how they’re getting on 🙂
