I adopted my three boys from Tracey at Primrose Mouse Rescue last year and they have been a lovely bunch, I've got all of them more used to me and they've all definitely become more confident. Just this week I've adopted another lovely little man from Tracey, he's a black and tan boy called Winston and was neutered in mid-Feb so is still in a cage of his own while his hormones settle. He's very active and inquisitive but still very shy and just tonight I noticed him vibrating his tail against the side of his cage when i was putting my hand in there to offer some treats. I'm guessing this is a 'back-off' sign so have left him alone, but could anyone give me a bit more info about why he's doing this? I don't want my hand attacked so it has made me quite nervous to be leaving it the cage to try and get him used to me!!
Thanks for your help!
