Well I'm happy to say a couple short weeks after looking into that Tupperware container and ending up with 2 tiny mice....I managed not to kill them and they are doing great! A boy & a girl, their beady little eyes opened 3 days after I got them.
Since then they have grown into the cutest little things and will be ready to go soon.
A lot has happened over the last week! The girls were released Wednesday. My little Pip is out in the big world.....along with Dolci, Merry, Stony, May, Moose, Amy and Kinky. My little babies are out on their own...sniff, sniff....
No sooner did we juggle babies around and send my 2 pair and Laurie's pair, Tewky and Crooky, off with another rehabber when the Animal Rescue League showed up with a new batch...literally about 15 minutes later. So much for a little rest for the weary! A pair from Perkins School for the Blind where they had the mother exterminated. Laurie took them home. Also a single boy who was found by a couple girls who thought it would be great to take it home! The next day they called the ARL complaining that it "destroyed" their house. OK....he's only about 4 weeks old, so he's not the one that destroyed anything. The "B" word comes to mind when thinking about these clueless ladies.......Luckily he's none the worse for his experience and settled in well here.
In the middle of all that another situation....a baby discovered stuck between the walls of a multi family home. No idea where mom is or if she is still around. Luckily Jim was able to rescue the little girl and get her safely to me. The situation was not ideal for attempting a reunite...and it was not even known if mom was still around to begin with. Springer is doing great as well and is the same age as the little boy from the ARL so they will be perfect together after quarantine.
Keeping an eye on another situation where a single kit was found. A re-unite is being attempted and if it's still there in the morning it will become the newest member to join the crew......
Whew.....It'll be nice to get back to work so I can relax! LOL
