It's official

Post by scaredymouse on Wed Oct 19, 2016 10:34 pm

I'm in over my head!  I've got people calling me now to take in rescues.  I don't have the ability to say no when I am presented with a sick animal that has nowhere to go.  But I also do not have the room, time, or money to take in any more animals.  There is a female mouse at Petco with an abscess from a eye/head injury.  The picture if awful.  It's likely that the mouse will need pain medication and antibiotics for some time and of course, she will need a colony after that.  That's why I got the phone call.  I can deal with meds and a proper home.  And if my colony doesn't take her, I'm crazy enough to go out and find a companion just for her.

Here she is!  Look at her head, oh my god.  She must have already endured so much pain.  And I'm sure she has been alone without any love.  She doesn't even have a name.  It breaks my heart.  She goes to the vet tomorrow and depending on what they say, she may be coming to live with me.  My husband is thrilled.  Husband:   Thud  me:  Pardon

Eek, is that one big ouch or does she have a black spot on her head? I can't tell on my phone. Thank goodness for you! This poor girl would be so lucky. Love

Yeah, she's all white. All the dark stuff you see are wounds, scabs or scars. I am told that she is friendly, despite everything that has happened to her. Even though I shouldn't be taking any more animals into this house, I *do* have an extra tank... and honestly, I want to bring that poor mouse home so she can have a name, be cared for and loved. So I guess I'll see what happens tomorrow. I really need to try to file the paperwork for non-profit status. Somehow, I have 18 animals right now... most of which are rescues!
