yesterday kitty of wildlife rescue called to say that the tiny newborn animal we found on our hiking trail on monday was doing well. she sounded surprised and happy. they put it with a mouse mother who was already nursing a few of her own. kitty said that once the little newborn latched on it didn't ever seem let go of the mouse foster mother.
we went for a visit:) the newborn has some shiny dark blackish fur now and super long pink legs. and as the foster mouse mom ran around her enclosure, it is true the newborn would not unlatch. kitty thought this was strange. i think this little tiny animal is determined not to lose mom again.
