If you're not sure, you can take him to a wildlife preserve or rescue society. They'll know how to take care of him. Or if you want to keep him (or her), you can just call the wildlife rescue and ask advice.

Aiya, forgot what time it was. Yeah. Keep him warm, I know that much. But other than that, I just know my mom would have screamed her head off if I found a baby mouse. At least, that's what she did the one Christmas we found a grown mouse trying to eat out of the cat's treat dish.

Standing looking at the treat dish like, "Where are my treats? Did that thing eat my treats? Seriously, where ARE my treats?" I think the hunting instinct has died in my fat, pampered felines.

LOL. I don't know exact measurements in milliliters, just try to feed it as much as it will eat. I don't have a lot of experiance with this, so I'm kind of hoping someone else will come along who is like a mouse breeder or something that deals with this if a mother abandons her baby....But if you can get the mouse through to night, find a lactating mouse at a petstore like I said. She will do all the work. The pet store might sell you one that is in a pinky mouse tank if you sound desperate enough..LOL

Females:
Jade-Pink VT
Evalin-Royal blue and red CT
Myah-Red cambodian VT with red head

Careful with feeding it as much as it'll eat, though- I've heard horror stories about them gorging themselves so much that they end up dying.

Not trying to scare you, just be cautious. :P

yeah... you dont have to be cautious about this one overeating... hes HARDLY eating... maybe hes not used to the formula or feeding method, but its REALLY hard to get him to eat. im trying everything, but he doesnt seem to be very cooperative. i can imagine thats why he isnt pooping/peeing either. im surprised hes still hanging on! he made it through the night and is still going..

true, i could try to find a lactating rat,, but that would also be denying all the other pinkies in the petstore food... you should see the pinky cages... theyr so overcrowded with pinkies and with 2 females its not even funny... ive seen withered pinkies in there... 0_0
