So, I haven’t posted here for rather a long time. Yeah, sorry about that…however, today I wanted to share the first in a series of posts about some of the things I’ve been making recently. You see, we got a pet mouse not so long ago…and a loved pet clearly needs some things making for him. The mouse is called Colin and he is adoreable. Here’s a bonus cute photo of him:
I’ve made a variety of toys for my mouse, but for today, I wanted to share the most recent two, because I can currently get a nice photo of them without disturbing Colin!
First up, a cute little snuggle pouch. He loves hiding in my hoodie pocket and running up shirts and generally hiding away, so I made him a snuggle pouch which is felt on the outside and fleece on the inside. The thread I used is a transparent nylon because that’s safe for little mice!
Finally, I also made him a fake friend! This is basically a mouse shaped felt toy, again sewn with transparent nylon thread. As he is a male mouse, he can’t live with other male mice because they will fight viscously. He also can’t live with females unless baby mice are wanted or he’s neutered. I don’t particularly fancy having tiny little mice and the neutering operation should only be done in rare circumstances because its dangerous for such a small creature. To counteract this, he gets lots of attention from us, and also a mouse sized friend to snuggle up to and play with!
As you can see below, Colin definitely approves!
