Sorry if this is in the wrong place but a neighbour's cat found a baby field mouse and the cat's owner then brought the tiny thing to us.
It's in a tupperware box on a heatpad covered with fleece and I have figured out how to get diluted kitten milk into its mouth (finally) but I don't know how to make it toilet. I know you're supposed to rub their hind ends but ...? According to the fun mouse you can use warm wet cotton bud thing, I tried with a damp tissue but with no results.
Also anyone have any idea how old it might be? (see thumb photo for size reference.) I guessed maybe 3 weeks but really don't have any real idea whatsoever!
I also read that hand reared animals can't be released into the wild, is that true....?
