Mouse outside the house

We got a 4th of July surprise today. I found this little guy in the driveway crying all alone. Ya, its a mouse. My first thought was of course, EEK. But he (or she) was so helpless and tiny and his little eyes where not open. We live on 8 acres and right where I found him is a huge amount of wild raspberries bushes. I was thinking mom would come and rescue. No luck. So off we went to get supplies. Got a little house, some bedding, food (all pet stores are closed because of the holiday so all we could get is soymilk). If anyone knows anything about care for such a small critter please write. In the meantime I will do a google search. I hope he makes it.

Little guy's eyes are still not open and once they do he will be released. As cute as "I" think he or she is, its a wild creature. We are reminded of that each time we him food. His teeth are sharp and although he's biting, its does not break the skin. Kate (my daughter) and I will find another way to feed instead of "in hand". Ouch.

This is so funny! When I got on the computer today to do some posting. I noticed something out of the corner of my eye by my right foot. When I looked down, Yep! Can you guess what I saw! A little critter that looks just like yours. I called my hubby and he took him outside. I don't know what he did with him and I don't think I will ask either. I think he was a baby. He was not afraid of a thing. I hope your little guy makes it.
