Mice/Orphan mouse died after bloat

Hi there, it's really sad when your little baby mouse dies like that. I found two baby orphaned mice the other day and adopted them to look after them and followed the rubbing of the stomach after eating. Unfortunately my one mouse didn't make it and was for that exact reason where his little stomach bloated and he died in his sleep. Was a shock to both me and his older brother. Now his brother does not want to sleep in his bed and relies on sleeping on me nuzzled into my shirt. I was so upset and heart broken after my baby passed away.

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.
