  • Marah, I think it's wonderful that you have such a kind heart. That mouse should be glad he came to your house. If he was at mine, he'd have already met a watery grave!

  • Marah, let me extend my condolences. I'm so sorry for your loss.  P.S.  I think you are a little disturbed, but that's okay.  I like disturbed people.  I identify with them!

  • If you ever find another, warm it up first on a warm (not hot) towel. This is gross but they cannot pee by themselves so you have to take a warm, moist cloth to wipe them down there. (The mother licks them to stimulate urination. Do not give it cow's milk. Half Goat's milk, half water in a dropper. Sorry I didn't post in time...
