Can you take a picture? If it is a baby mouse, I'm guessing the parents are somewhere in your home. If the baby is alive but lethargic, you probably will want to take it to a vet.

I encourage you to register so you can take full advantage of the board (posting in all the forums). It's fast, and it's free! thumb

this is how I found our first baby glider when she came out of pouch
Waqs your glider pregnant? You need to go to the petstore or walmart and get some Esbilac puppy or kitten formula, but first hold in your hands and get warm, give a dab of honey or karo syrup on tongue (a DAb only)

i think she is talking about a baby glider. I emailed her and asked for a phone number. Any further emergency advice other than getting glucose up, baby warm and trying to find out if her glider was pregnant? first?

ok just talked on the phone with her. a breeder gave her mom and unneutered son and said it was no big deal. I have her going to get esbilac, she is actually here in town with me.

Here's Suz page on Hand Raising A Joey. I don't know if this will be necessary or if the mother will take the joey back and care for it. Sorry, I have no experience with babies. worried

Please let us know how things are going.

Wow..that must have been a shocker!!

I guess the mom isn't interested in the joey? Would she take it back?

Good thing she's in the same town as you Beth...she must be pretty overwhelmed with that little surprise!!

i am sooo glad she was in memphis- she even stopped by to get formula. its warm and eating, now sleeping. a bit dehydrated but not yellow at all. its kind of a little miracle if it makes it- we had my male neutered and lost our only joey 2 days oop, so it'd be kind of wonderful for me if it makes it.

Definitely keep the baby warm, and it will need to be fed frequently. In addition to Suz's site, here are a couple of newsletters with information that might help you:

Hand Rearing Orphaned / Abandoned Joeys - Part I
Hand Rearing Orphaned / Abandoned Joeys - Part II

Ideally you can put the joey back with the parents, but if the momma rejects it, you will need to either try to hand raise it, or supplement feed if the parents will care for it a bit.

Right now it's to early to determine this little ones outcome.
Many have survived under these circumstances, so all we can do is put this sweet little angle in God's hands and do what needs to be done to help him/her.
Your doing great, and we are so happy that your there to help.
I'm sure your husband will hold a specialness towards your kindness and love.

Hey beth I have hand raised joeys so if you have any questions I will be glad to help wish you were closer I would offer to babysit and spell you so you could get some sleep I know how hard it is to hand feed little ones. Keep it warm most use an incubator but I always kept the baby on me as much as possible and used my body heat. To say the least I was extremely sleep deprived alot. But I am more than willing to help any way I can if you want to pm me I can send you my phone number and you can call any time.

Bless his little heart! and yours!!!!
I really can't tell you for sure how premature he is, but from what your describing I'd say about 2 weeks.

Without pics it's a little hard to tell, but I'd also guess about 2 weeks early. hug2 s and prayers headed to you for him to grow up big and healthy!
