Our newest house guest

On Saturday my partner asked me if I saw the mouse that one of our barn cats Miss Kitty had killed that morning. There was a tiny baby beside it. We didn't think the baby was alive at first. It was very cold and barely breathing. She put it in the sun with some hay to warm up while we mucked out and I think we both expected to find it dead when we had finished. But no he's a fighter (we think he's a he lol). 


So inside he came to get warmed up. He drank pedialyte for a day before starting on soy milk baby formula. He needs to drink from a piece of rag as everything else is too big for him.


He weighs less than an ounce. And for now he goes by the name Mighty Mouse. I'm happy to say he is doing very well...even if he does get his formula all over himself. His eyes are even beginning to open.


I guess we need to buy him a little cage with a wheel :) Hopefully he continues to be healthy and grow strong.

  1. Too cute. My Dad and Mom were always dragging in something like that and raised several litters of mice, 'possums whatever. Anything that was abandonded and helpless we ended up taking care of. I now pretty much do the same thing. We usually ended up releasing them back out to the wild, but since my dad worked for the conservation dept. he had options. Good luck with MM! Hope you enjoy him.

  4. Thanks Tammy. I worry that if we released him here one of the barn cats will get him. Instead we went out yesterday and got him a tank, and a lot of toys.

    Yes Donna he is a tiny fella. I still don't know how the cat didn't get him - just the mom - he seems fine.

    Judy I'm not a huge fan either but he is the smallest little thing and I think that helps :)
