I have two mice that I am fostering until I can find suitable homes for them. I have had them almost 3 weeks, and when I got them, they didn't even have their eyes open and they hadn't eaten in a couple of days. My son and I did research, and he went and bought pedialite, and soy infant formula. I had to syringe feed them, and clean them and make them potty. They opened their eyes about 2 days, and 5 days after I got them. Well since then, I have transitioned them to lab blocks, and some oats, and water, but I have still been putting formula in their dish. I have slowly been watering it down more and more, but I don't know when I'm supposed to take it away completely. They are very active, and the brown one we named Minnie is super friendly, and climbs in my hand as soon as I put it in the cage. For some reason, the white one won't come close to me. I need to transition them into a big cage, and out of their nursery cage maybe tomorrow. We'll, today I noticed BOTH of them have started to drop their balls! So I guess Minnie is now Mickey, and the white one is dumplin. Or maybe I should call the brown one gravy? Anywho, I need to know, since they are boys, do I need to seperate them, and when? When do I take their formula away completely? I'm honestly surprised that they survived this long, given how hard it is to syringe feed them and keep them alive. Or so I've read. I'm not a mouse person, but the brown one kinda is tugging at my heart. I know I can't keep them, so I'm trying to find a good home where they WON'T become food. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
