One of my little mice has died. Does the remaining mouse need a new friend?
I know that mice don’t live long. I have had them both for about a year and 9 months. Thing is, I have no idea the age of either of them, so the one remaining mouse (Minnie) could live for another 6 months or so.
I don’t want the remaining mouse to be lonely. A few weeks is one thing, but what if she lives for another 6 months? Will she be okay? I don’t want her to suffer.
If I do get her a friend, will she be okay if I get 2 younger mice that come form the same litter (if that’s what it’s called)? Boys or girls?
What should I do?
