What Pet Sitting Visits Do I Need For My Mice?

Today, we’re excited to delve into the charming world of mice and the special care they require. These tiny creatures have stolen the hearts of many pet owners with their adorable appearance and playful antics. If you’re a proud mouse owner, you know that these pint-sized pets deserve the same love and attention as their larger counterparts. But what exactly does that entail when it comes to pet sitting visits for your delightful little friend?

Mice may be small in size, but they have big personalities and specific care needs. At Wet Noses Pet Sitting, we understand the importance of finding a pet sitter who is knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated to providing exceptional care for your mouse.

You’ll find our recommended visit schedule below for mice.

Mice Option

This is an ideal schedule for mice that only need to be checked on once daily.

15  or 30 Minute VisitYour sitter will arrive and check on your mice. This visit can be done at whatever time of day you prefer, based on when you normally care for your mice. This visit can include feeding, changing water, and any cage cleaning that needs to be done. If your mice need treats or any changing of toys, that can be done as well. The length of the visit should be determined by how many general tasks there are to be done.

Our Considerations for Mice

For mice, there are some very specific steps we take to keep them as safe and relaxed as possible.

  • Your sitter will want to know the routine of your mice and if there are any behaviors that would be concerning.
  • Often mice are hiding when your sitter will arrive. If you would like your sitter to locate your mouse in order to check her health, show your sitter the normal areas she will sleep.
  • Mice can make a mess of their food and water. Your sitter will need access to all of your supplies in case any issues arise.
  • For the safety of your mice, we do not encourage general handling during visits.

Time to Customize!

We want to work with you to set up the best possible schedule for your mice, so you are all happy during your trip. We also know that each home is different, and a lot of people have more than just one pet! After you have the basic idea of your schedule we sit down to figure out the nitty-gritty:

  • Are there any other pets in the home that need feeding, medication, etc? We make sure your visit has enough time to get everything done.
  • We have time to clean out food and water bowls, clean up any messes, etc.
  • Many people who love animals, also love plants! Short visits do not have a lot of time for plants. If you need the sitter to water more than 1-2 plants, we will need to schedule a longer visit for those days. If you have beautiful summer gardens, then we need to see how long they take to water and add that on to your normal visits.
  • Household tasks such as; bringing in the newspaper, collecting the mail, turning lights off and on and taking out the trash. This can all be done on your normal schedule.
  • Do you want updates every visit? Many clients do, just keep in mind that your sitter will take a couple minutes to send an update.
  • Keep in mind that it will take a sitter a bit longer to get the work done than it takes you. Especially if you have extensive routines for your pets and home. You have had years to perfect your system! We always try to make sure your pet sitter will have enough time for everything. That way they will not feel stressed and your pets will receive the focus they deserve.
