I did that with a coupla orphaned rabbit kits once.<quoted text>
I recently adopted two orphaned white-footed mice.
I was moving a huge pile of brush and tree limbs at my sister's house. Their mother was crushed by a tractor and they were almost stepped on.
Fed them kitten formula from a pipette for close to two weeks. They opened their eyes 3 and 4 days in. One of them had a broke rear leg, or if not broke, it was lame at least. It's all healed up now though.
That was three weeks ago so I'm guessing they're around 5 weeks old. They're weaned and ready for release.
Now... you tell me...
Do I sound like I'm gonna shoot a deer?
But I do love venison...
