Hi my cat brought in a mouse and has injured it. when my cat dropped the mouse the mouse sat there, so i gently picked it up with some kitchen roll and put it outside.<br><br><br><br>
it started to walk but it was limping and falling over everytime it did. i then started crying and panicing (i know that doesn't help, but it really upsets me) so then woke my mum(which she wasn't to happy about as she has to get up early for work tommorow) she told me just to leave it and let my other cat get it (the cat that got it doesn't kill mice it just injures them, but the other one kills them)<br><br><br><br>
i can't do that poor little mouse! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/worried.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":worried:"> so she told me to put it in the gararge, as i didn't have a box or anything, i got aload of kitchen roll and layed it inside the gararge near the door(as there is a little gap in the door where it can escape if it needs to).<br><br><br><br>
i picked the mouse up and put it on the kitchen roll bed, with some sunflower seeds. and shut the door. I asked my mum if she could take it to a rescue centre and she said no!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veryangry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":grr:"> (she said we've done all we can and to let nature take its course plus shes working all day tomorrow, also 'its silly' to take a mouse to a rescue place apparently, but i think a moues life is just as important as any other)<br><br><br><br>
i don't know what to do as it's got a broken leg, also i'm only 15 and am off school at the moment as i am ill. so i cant really do much. WHAT SHALL I DO, WILL SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!! this whole incident happened about an hour ago, as far as i know the mouse is still alive, shall i wait till the morning to see what state it is in then. my mum said there are tons of mice nests in the gararge, so if it does survive it wont be alone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/help.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":help:"><br><br><br><br>
by the way i'm new<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":shy:">

Sorry, I'm afraid I can't be of much help....except to say that I've tried many times to save little critters from my cats but they usually end up dying. It's difficult with something that small...it's pretty hard to rehabilitate once they've been injured. I guess the best you can do is hope for the best and maybe it will be ok in the morning. Sorry!

I doubt it will survive without professional help. If someone attacked me, and broke my leg, I probably wouldnt do to good just laying in a garage. Is s/he eating and drinking? Any blood?<br><br>
Very sad. I'm sorry your mom belives this is "all you can do" for the mouse, I wish more could be done.

I don't know if your in the US or not, but here usually a vet hospital will take it in. Then they get to decide if they can help it or to just put it to sleep. I've dropped a few mice off before after my cat got them. If you tell them its a wild mouse then they aren't supposed to charge you either.

Welcome to VeggieBoards! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"> It is sad to hear about that mouse. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"> I think you should take it to a vet hospital, as whisper suggested.
