I’ve tried scenting with tuna first and that’s when he ate, but when I tried to feed after that still scenting with tuna I had no luck. I then tried salmon and he seemed interested, but still no luck. I haven’t heard about offering hard boiled eggs, but I will definitely look more into that!

I soak the mice in hot water before I feed to make sure it’s warm. But whenever I try to make the mouse “dance,” he usually puffs up or hisses at it.

There was a bunch of leafy plants already in his enclosure, but to be sure I just doubled the amount of leaves in there so maybe that will help him feel less vulnerable!

Thank you so much for all of the advice!!

I added a picture of my little dude (his name is Pickle😁)
