Two orphaned mice, possible 1/2 week old, help!

Post by GoggleHat on Sun 09 Jul 2017, 7:32 pm

I have no clue what to do, a member of my family threw away some yard scrap and trimmings and somehow a mouse nest was among the twigs, moss, leaves, etc. According to them, the mother ran off, of course, and they didn't seen the nest. later while I was mowing the lawn, I found two baby mice with some amount of fur, waddling around on the grass. I took them inside, we looked for the nest and found it, but no other babies were around. we put the nest in a medium-sized Tupperware container with a sock and placed it on top of a heating pad kept at the lowest setting. I then bought some Soy Similac and attempted to feed the mice in my hand with an absorbent string I dipped into the slightly warmed similac. I don't know, I don't know if I can deal with this sudden responsibility or if I'm able to help them properly, could someone please help me? Advice or anything?
