Abby mouse and Lizzy mouse came yesterday as the latest adoptions.
Abby mouse is large brindle and very friendly. Abby is also very protective of the little long haired mouse Lizzy and was often seen cleaning her.
Abby mouse, being not-so-shy, and interested in what I was doing.
Little Lizzy mouse may be a bit of a runt, but she not afraid of anything. The first time I picked her up for an examination she bitched me out, but, did not struggle too much to get away. When we tried to mix the two new girlies in with the other females the alpha of that pair, Ethel mouse, almost immediately started attacking Lizzy mouse. Ethel is not much bigger than Lizzy and Lizzy actually fought back. But I decided it would be better to separate them and keep them to their original pairings.
Since Abby mouse appears to be eating well I decided to supplement Lizzy mouse's diet with Pediasure feedings separate from Abby mouse. Lizzy mouse is not too sure what to think about this Pediasure, but after several offerings she started to lick some off the eyedropper or off her front paws.
