Cake Topper

My dumb ass fed the baby mouse milk and he died in my hand soon afterwards. Right before that, he was doing great. He even tried to run away from Mr. Ashley.

So now you know, baby mice can't do cow's milk.

It's par for the course for my day.

I'm a mouse murderer.

I'm so sorry, at least you tried.

The pup probably aspirated on the milk. I killed a rat pup trying to give it liquid antibiotics one time. :(

Aw shit. Sorry.

For the record, baby birds don't, either, but my husband didn't know that. Well, maybe they do drink cow's milk (unlikely, since they're not mammals), but they definitely DON'T drink Pediasure.

My deepest condolences for your loss. I'm sure it wasn't the milk. It sounds more like internal injuries.

My mother once cut a black snake while mowing the lawn. She put Neosporin on the cut and the snake immediately went stiff and died.

But they eat cheese? How does that make sense. I would have done the same thing.
