Minerva Mouse Mouse Saint Paul, MN
Petfinder recommends that you should always take reasonable security steps before making online payments.
Estimated birth date: 5/20/2020
Personality: Inquisitive, Playful, Energetic, Nervous, Mouthy (puts mouth on you but does not bite down, usually thinking your fingers are food), Hesitant but not really fearful
Favorite treats: Banana
Favorite toys and activities: Rearranging, digging tunnels under the egg carton/cereal box, and logs. Destroying stuffed toilet paper tubes. Not the acrobat that’s Delores is—possibly because Minerva is more skittish and less treat motivated.
Potty trained: Haven’t tried
This animal daily routine: Minerva hasn’t developed a daily routine yet!
BFF (Does this animal have or need a same species friend in their home?): Yes! Minerva is bonded to Sarah & Delores!
Other species this pet has been exposed to and reaction: Her foster’s dog watches her in the bin but she doesn’t seem to notice him.
Health concerns: None
Behavioral concerns: Sarah is in our trust training program for her shy behavior towards humans, while Minerva & Dolores are in our trust training program for mouthy behavior when approached by hands. Learn more about our trust training methods at https://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org/trust-training Her foster talks quietly, reaching out with treats and allowing her to come to her. Being calm and patient. She’s getting more and more used to her foster and will typically pop up to say hi even if she doesn’t always climb into her hand.
Trust Training Update 1/11/2021 - Minerva comes out for treats and allows herself to pick her up. Her foster is quiet and careful to avoid fast movements.
Other notes: She’s nervous and just needs some patience. Delores helps her to be brave!
Minerva, Dolores, & Sarah came to MNPPR after being found outside along with several other mice in a small dirty cage. When their rescuer could no longer afford vet care, they were transferred into our care.
