Last night I found this small deer mouse near the step of one of my college buildings. Alone, except for his sadly cold and expired siblings, he was shivering and sad. I took him in, fed him, and dropped him off at a wildlife center where he is now flourishing.
As a kid I had lots of mice- most of them were “fancy” store bought mice, but one generation had a bit of wild mouse in them (aka a sneaky fella got in the house and found a girlfriend). This little guy was so sweet- he was great at drinking milk off of my finger and slept soundly throughout the night. Have you all ever taken in wildlife? Let me know down below.
