Mice: accessories for a happy and stimulated life for your small animal
Mice are very cute creatures. Fancy mice and gerbils in particular are becoming increasingly popular and their owners find them captivating. But to ensure that the lively small animals always feel comfortable in their enclosure, it is important that you equip their cage with accessories of various kinds.
Litter, hay, etc.: basic accessories for mice
A generous layer of litter is indispensable as the basis for the mouse enclosure. It helps to maintain hygiene in the cage by absorbing liquids and binding bad odours. It also acts as effective thermal insulation. With Maxi Zoo you get litter from different materials, from hemp to softwood shavings and to litter from forest floor components. In addition, a layer of straw is also a good idea. This also has a temperature-regulating and odour-binding effect and acts as a cosy cushion, too.
Hay tunnels are particularly popular with small animals. They can be used as a retreat and can also be nibbled safely. The hay contains many raw fibres, which is beneficial for the digestion of your mice. It also promotes the necessary tooth abrasion. To ensure that your pet is constantly supplied with hay, you should also buy a hay rack as a mouse accessory. A practical drinking bottle holder makes it easier to supply fresh water.
Mice like to be busy
Your mice want to be satisfied not only when it comes to their physical well-being. They also like to be busy. You should therefore provide special accessories in the cage for your mice in the form of toys. This ensures that the little animals don’t get bored and their natural instincts are stimulated and their skills encouraged. Make sure that the toys are made of wood or other natural materials as far as possible, since your mice are very likely to want to gnaw them.
Mice are passionate climbers. Consequently, they should also be provided with appropriate mouse accessories in their cage. Ladders, bridges or other wooden constructions ensure a great climbing experience for the animals.
Mice need places of retreat in their enclosure
Moreover: just like other domesticated small animals, mice also love playing in a sand bath and burrowing. The reason for this is that mice in their natural environment like to dig caves in the ground in order to hide themselves. In addition, mice like to use a sand bath to roll in to care for their fur and to cool down in the summer. Therefore a sand bath is also essential as an accessory for mice. At Maxi Zoo you will find suitable sand mixtures including containers for the sand bath.
Speaking of places of retreat: these are fundamentally important when setting up the mouse cage, since mice have a natural urge to hide every now and then. For this purpose, small wooden huts or cork pipes are also suitable in addition to hay tunnels. If you want to buy the appropriate mice accessories, you’re in the right place at Maxi Zoo.
