Bedding for Your Pet Mouse

A mouse is a cute, cuddly rodent that has become a very popular pet over the years for many reasons. While many people mistakenly think rodents are dirty animals, quite the contrary is true. Rodents are actually very clean, very gentle creatures that require a great deal of tender, loving care. Pet mice are not recommended for children under five years of age due to their care needs and of how easily they can be hurt by youngsters not realizing how fragile their cute little furry body is. However, if you have children older than five or no children at all, a pet mouse may be something you’d really enjoy. It’s recommended that children under the age of five not interact with pet mice for reasons mainly due to safety and handling issues. Zen Pet Supplies has a large selection of pet mouse bedding that will work for many different types of mouse.
As we have stated on many of our small pet product pages, not all types of habitat supplies work with all types of animals. Just because animals look similar or are kept in similar cages does not mean their bedding choices will be identical. For this reason, it’s very important to do your research before choosing a pet and setting up his habitat. Also, if you’re a frequent visitor to our website, you also know how much we emphasize the importance of setting up your pet’s habitat before he arrives at your home. It can be super stressful to set up a mouse habitat while the mouse is already in your home, and you certainly don’t want this little guy to get loose on his very first day in his new digs! A pet mouse needs daily attention from its humans, so if you’re looking for a pet that can go 24-48 hours without being with you physically, a mouse might not be the best pet for you. These little guys need lots of human interaction, and the more you hold and play with them, the better your bond with your pet mouse will be.

Zen Pet Supplies carries all the names you know and trust when it comes to bedding for your small pets, including mice. Our current choices include cotton bedding, pressed aspen bedding, woven mat bedding, pressed pine bedding, pressed cedar bedding, and a variety of CareFresh products. This is a highly trusted brand for pet-related products, and CareFresh gets pretty good reviews online. One website that specializes in pet mouse products had this to say: “CareFresh does a decent job of controlling odor…it does not cover up the smell, it neutralizes it…absorbs and dries urine quickly…helping eliminate the smell. While CareFresh may be more expensive than other beddings, it makes up for that price by expanding greatly. CareFresh is also great for nesting and tunneling.” Please check out all these and more for pet mouse bedding on the Zen Pet Supplies’ online store.
