== == www.afrma.org/rminfo8.htm Article about taking care of orphan mice. A few days ago we got an orphan mouse. We feed the mouse every 2 hours with cow's milk and we warmed it with deluded water and fed it with a medicine dropper. That was our last resort because every pet store was closed. We finally got to a pet store that opened and got kitten formula. We drop the milk on our hands and the mouse licks it up. The mouse has no fur yet and it's eyes are shut. It's very spunky, and it loves snuggling into my hands. When we are not holding her in our hands, we put her in a shoe box with socks and toilet paper. We also have a light over her, but we leave a shady spot...just incase she gets too warm. Hope this helped!!!

It depends on how old the mouse is. If it is a New-born then no the mom will leave the mouse.

I no longer take in orphan raccoons as I am too old for the demands they make on a caretakers life. Contact a local wildlife rehabilitator in your area.

The best advice for caring for baby mice would be: do not handle the baby mouse until it is as least one week old. Baby mice a very hard to take care of.

New born mice are pink with their eyes tight shut and their ears back. At day five, you'll be able to see the mouse's pigmentation. At day ten, the mouse will have a fuzz over it's body. By day fourteen, their eyes will be open and they should be able to move around quite well. An orphan mouse will need vital care before it's opened it's eyes. Afterward, there's a pretty good chance they will live if you can adequately take care of them.

First of all.... the answer should be complete that how much small is the mouse??? that is, it's a little gorwn up baby or premature?????? It's really very hard to nurse a baby mouse, that to without any good vet's help...... as their body is really senstive to surrounding environment

Well if you have a baby mouse with no fur what you should feed it warm puppy or kitten milk (not cow milk, that can cause diarrhea) using a syringe. If you don't have a syring, you can use a piece of string until you can get one, just soak it in the milk until a drop forms at the end. If the baby mouse does not drink it take it to the closest RSPCA.

After proving your nationality that you are a Pakistan and providing your particulars, you can adopt a baby in orphan houses situated in all major cites of Pakistan. In Lahore, the largest orphan house is situated on Multan Road which is also called as Yateem Khana. You can approach it from 9am to 6pm, from Monday to Friday to adopt a baby of your choice. One more important thing; you will have to undertake legally by filling a legal form that you will take care of adopted baby and will report to orphan house after every 365 days.

Depends...how old is it? If it's eyes are still closed then get some kitty formula and feed it every two hours.

That is impossible. They can communicate and connect, but they cannot take care of each other. Besides,,, taking care is not in the dictionary of babies come on :)
