Yesterday we found a baby thing on the garden path. I say thing as we are not sure whether or not it is a mouse, rat or a squirrel. I don't really think you should mess with mother nature so I made sure the OL's didn't touch him and we walked away. I kept checking back, hoping that his mummy would find him and take him home.
The minutes turned to hours and it was starting to get dark. I really couldn't leave him there anymore and decided to bring him in - he was freezing. So, I warmed him up and gave him a bit to drink. He had a very nice night.
I have now put him on a little heat pad, in a box, back in the spot where we found him. Praying that his Mummy comes to get him and that he doesn't get eaten by some passing bird.
