I just wanted to know could a Roborovski hamster breed with a mouse because my hamster escaped 5 weeks ago and i know that she's still alive because i saw her yesterday but i couldn't catch her. but she has been living in the walls where there are mice and i just wanted to know if it's possible that she has been breeding with one of them? Well anyways I hope that I can get some replies fast because i want to know if I should try to capture her or not? I'm going to try to trap her when she comes out tonight so I hope people will reply quickly!!! Thanks!!!
-Mike

I mean, they could, but it wouldn't work; they'd prolly kill each other.
Try getting her to come to you...like, leave food out ;)

You should try getting her ASAP seeing as the mice most likely have diseases that could pass to her.
But no, she cannot breed with them. Most animals cannot breed with other kinds of animals.

If the bucket trick doesn't work you can always buy a HUMANE rodent trap. That is the traps that are non-lethal. ;)

We'll i looked into havahart traps but they're like $30-$50 each and i think that's way too expensive!!! (plus even though i would still buy it if i could save suki i don't have the money and mom won't pay above $10-$15 dollars for them "sigh") we'll i hope the bucket trick works!!!
