Hi people, I really need some help. I found a mouse about a week ago (eyes shut but had fur) and started to feed it with a paintbrush a kitten milk which was fine. Then changed to a syringe and it was still feeding ok. Not it’s eyes are open and it runs around like mad but won’t take food from me at all. It seems to have a fuller belly than when I was hand feeding it (I have left some food pellets, water bowl and also a water bottle inside the cage. Does this mean it is eating itself? Or is it just swelling where it is hungry? I went a got a heat matt and a biggish fish tank to keep it in (it’s Xmas so the best I could do)
I really don’t want it to die now especially as i was looking after it on Xmas day 😂.
Any advice would be great please.

Try adding some KMR to his pellets so they are nice and soft. And maybe try a nice treat and see if he'll take that, maybe a tiny piece of walnut, or some fruit/vegetables. Other than that I don't have enough experience to give you more advice.
