Hi. I found a baby field mouse outside in our yard. It was in the middle of a big piece of our yard that is flat with no grass or anything, and i looked for a mom, but couldn't find one. I put it in our barn in a terrarium with dirt and grass on the bottom. There is a tiny toy mailbox lined with an old sock that i am using as a den for it, and we are feeding it soy milk from an eye dropper, which it is eating eagerly. it will not take solid foods though. i am feeding it every few hours, is that enough or too much? It is a few inches long with fur and open eyes. it has no injuries. my parents won't let me keep it in the house, won't buy it formula, a mother mouse, ANYTHING! I am trying to get them to take it to a nature center that puts injured or orphaned wild animals
in rehab. please help! is there anything i can change that would be better for the mouse without buying anything that would not be for humans (like if cheese would be good, i could buy that saying it's for us, just an example.) i'm really worried though it seems okay, just without a mom. i know that i'm supposed to put it outside to make sure it has no mom and it will squeak, but we have three dogs who would love to eat it. PLEASE HELP!
