:Have you pissed her off real good yet.

Yes I have pissed her off pretty good she just seems too passive. I can go in the cage and touch her if I'd like (though I'm trying to keep her as stress free as possible) she just seems not to be aggressive enough and it affects feeding. Also, as far as heating the mice up pretty hot, I find that when they are wet the water makes the mouse cool down much faster and drying them seems to lose heat too. I will keep on trying and if she takes you guys will be the first to know. Oh, also, this heat issue brings up another thing I just heard which may or may not be true. Does heating mice in hot water affect the nutritional value of the mice? Your thoughts?
