We have a huge problem with mice in our apartment and my dwarf rabbit Ray lives in his x-pen in the living room and is frequently let out to play when someone can supervise. We had only seen mice in the kitchen and bathroom, so I wasn't too worried about Ray and the mice, but he is in his x-pen currently and I just watched a mouse run right in. I scared it off, but I am really worried about him at night with his cage and pen on the floor, both easily penetrable by these tiny grubby mice. We are having no luck trying to get rid of them, they're so small they can run right over the traps without setting them off. What can I do to ensure the safety of my rabbit? Am I paranoid to worry about them interacting with him at all, and possible disease contraction?

Oh, do they? Sorry. I wasn't aware. I was told about those on FB when someone was getting rid of mice.
I just grown so much more respect for this site, btw. I was part of another rabbit forum and someone had a mouse problem and when I pipped in with my humane remedies (while everyone else was like KILL!) I was talked down to, and they got ridiculous, like talking about how rats "carry the plague" (when they obviously don't). :/
I'm glad I see other people who don't want to kill them or hurt them.
We had a mouse problem in my basement. We fixed up all the holes too, then caught the remaining mice with a have-a-heart trap and then let them go (usually 2 or more at a time) in the woods. It worked for us.
