I found a baby wild mouse tonight. I read Wikihow on how to care for it, but I’m not sure it’s working. He or she was active at first. I think he or she is about 2 weeks old. I tried to feed it kitten formula watered down. It ate a little at first. I tied to stimulate it to go potty and it went a little. I just checked on the baby to try to feed him again and he doesn’t seem to want to wake up. He’s in a warm box with soft socks on a heating pad on low covered by a towel. Is he okay? Is he just sleepy because he’s a baby or should I do something different?

Hello, @Anjibabi! I've never had a baby mouse, much less an orphaned one before, so I won't be much help, but...it sounds like you're doing good. ? Smile
He could very well be dying, as they're so fragile and tiny--and it wouldn't have anything to do with you, I'm sure. But I do hope he makes it.
Have you gently moved him slightly/stroked him with your finger to wake him up? Or maybe he just needs to sleep a little longer. Check in on him every couple of hours to feed him and keep getting him to go potty---Again, it sounds like you're doing the best you can, but keep in mind that sadly he might not make it, anyways. Sad

Please keep us updated!

It's so frustrating, as I really don't know how to help you. Gaah
