house mouse rescue
i work in a bike shop with a basement and one of my coworkers found three mice, that were dead or near death, on the floor downstairs. one (looked like an adult) was definitely a goner, but the other two (looked like juvies) were barely clinging on. i stuck the two of em in a box with a towel, water, and some bread and they pretty much came back to life. well, one escaped and the other i have in one of those small clear plastic cages from the pet store. i have a little cap of water for it and feed it bread and it seems to be doing good, if a little bored.
i just want to know if it's a good idea to keep a wild house mouse. if not, will it survive if i let it out in the yard? don't really want it to run around in the house with two cats. thoughts welcome. thanks.
btw, i named em Pacho and Lefty. so i guess Lefty split for Ohio.
