Orphaned Baby mouse needs friend
the story began last thurs with what i thought was a dead baby mouse, my dog snatched him from under my BBQ. I slid a paper towel under his poor little body thinking he might just be in shock and placed him farther back under. was hoping the mom would come get him. his eyes had not yet opened and he was very thin. then for hours he did not move and i was just thinking it was time to get rid of him, when i noticed he had moved. i called my teen daughter out and we decided to bring him in and see if we could help. He should have died from shock or dehydration at that young age. i did some checking on google and we went to get some kitten replacement milk and a container to put him in. For the first few days we had a very hard time getting him to even take a few sips off the end of a paint brush.had to force feed. then a couple days later his eyes opened. his ears are coming out more and now he eats from the eye dropper. and a little round mouse he is becoming in less than a week.and tonight for the first time he had something solid. He ate a huge chunk of arrowroot cookie. and he was playing with me. and jumping all over my hands and lap.This little guy is a fighter. IF he survived my dog he deserved the chance to be helped to live.Now i know they are social creatures and dont do well by them selves, so my question is can i get another mouse from the pet store to keep him company? do wild and domestic get along? and will 2 males get along?
