How to beat the heat

The mouse wears a thick fur coat all year round, so in the hot and humid summer, the mouse is very sad. Do not let the mouse blow air-conditioning (occasionally it is okay), because this will reduce the heat resistance of the mouse, and even people will have air-conditioning sickness, not to mention the mouse!

1. Change the mouse house to a ceramic house, and the mouse can sleep in it coolly.
2. Lower the indoor temperature, open windows, and doors to increase convection, and turn on electric fans to circulate air.
3. Put less sawdust, just put a thin layer.
4. Freeze the bottled water in the freezer and put it outside the rat cage. Remember to be careful not to let the water drip into the cage. The ice bottle will emit cold air, which can make the mouse feel cool.
5. Take a small glass bottle of cold water and put it in the cage, so that the bottle will be cool, and the mouse can rely on it to dissipate heat. The reason for using a glass bottle is that the bottle does not leak water without being bitten by a mouse, and the glass bottle has a cooling effect.
6. Put a stone or tile in the cage, the mouse will sleep on it to enjoy the cool, but when choosing a stone or tile, pay attention to whether the edge is too sharp and cause injury to the mouse.
