So I got two new additions yesterday, one of which was a field mouse about 4 or 5 weeks old, and the other was agouti. Anyway, I guess the owners had ended up with a couple field mice babies, when a preggo mother was caught in one of their live traps on their farm. The mouse had the babies and they put the babies with another mother that they had, and set the wild mum free. So now I've got this boy and he's a real cutie. Pretty quirky too. He plays dead when he's scared, and that freaked me out at first lol. When I put my hand in, and he just falls over and stretch out, and he really looks dead. Then upon poking him he just springs back to life and runs away. He seems to be really scared though, so I hope he'll be okay. Although he was captively raised and all. Well, I just thought I'd share. :D Thanks for reading.

I haven't named him yet, but I will when inspiration hits. I'll also try to have pics up later, but he's sleeping right now.
