|Comment||I have a little experience taking care of orphaned animals but Natashas input and encouragement has led to the most amazing experience with an orphaned mouse. I think despite my own knowledge of small animal care I would have lost Mighty Mouse had it not been fot her. He is now a very special member of my animal family. So if anyone out there is really reading this, give my extra kudos to Natasha for her care and concern.|
I can answer questions about raising mice and caring for them as pets, with knowledge from my 38 years of having fancy mice as pets. I have NO MEDICAL TRAINING and you should take a sick mouse to the vet; but if you simply can't, I will try to help you. I LOVE PHOTOS!!! I ALSO LOVE UPDATES! Let me know how the little tyke is doing later on, for better or worse, especially orphans. It also helps me to help the next person. Please first search first: use 'Natasha Mice Mouse' with whatever else your question includes.

I have had mice for 40 years (since I was 5!). I raised them when I was a child but now I keep all females, and never fewer than three so that if one dies the others are not devastated, because they have each other.
I run Rats and Mice are Awesome on Facebook. The official name is Rats are Awesome.
