There is construction in rear of my Apt causing mice to come inside.
I've set traps and sprayed foam in all openings and still I get small mice that get into the keet cage at night.
I take all the food out of the cage at night and cover the cage at night but around 4-6 AM there they are.
The cage is on a 3 shelf cart and it is quite large.
I thought about hanging the cage but it was not built to be hung.
Any ideas

Wow, that is pretty scary.

OK what I'd do is get thin sheets of plastic and create a shield for the lower half of the cage. Use duct tape to make two 2-sided angles and then just use masking tape to connect those two together each night. That way they can't get in.

I live in a very old house and mice are a problem. You are just going to have to keep on it by putting out bait stations to kill the mice. We usually keep these outside around the house. I also keep a couple of mouse traps around the cages. Eventually you will start seeing them less and less as the poison kills them. Keep the bait stations filled. And try not to worry too much. The birds stay high and the mice stay low. It's unpleasant, but the birds seem to be quite unaffected by the mice. About the plastic sheets, you'd be surprized at how good mice are at getting what they want.

We do have mice here, too, so I understand how tenacious they can be. Still, if there's no food in there at night, and there's shields around the cage, they might just continue on to other locations. With the diseases they carry it's best to at least make it a challenge for them to get near other pets.
