Lorelei Tibbetts returns to Celia Kutcher’s Animal Instinct to talk about pet rodents! Lorelei works in New York City where she currently is the manager of The Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine. She has worked exclusively with exotic pets since 2004, and is the chair of her veterinary technician specialty academy, The Academy for Veterinary Technicians in Clinical Practice, where she was a founding member of the Exotic Companion Animal specialty. Learn what rodents live well together in cages, and find out what bedding is best for rodent health. Where can you find a rodent rescue in New York City? Later, find out what rodents are nocturnal, and if it’s possible to change their sleep patterns. Learn about herbivorous rodents, and what kinds of greens truly aid their diet. Thanks to our sponsor, Tekserve. Music by Sleepies.



“Mice can live well together in groups, but if you have a male and female together, you’re going to have a lot of baby mice! I would recommend you spay or neuter them, or keep the sexes separate.” [8:45]
