I already posted on this, but I didn't get very many replies. maybe this has never happened to anyone else? :book4
Got a baby mouse, eyes aren't open - everything is going great, it eats, and does its thing.
Its fur is pretty thick, I'd guess it's about a week old. While cleaning him with a Qtip I think he got to wet, and now his fur is like slicked down to his skin and it looks like bald spots. At first, when it wouldn't dry I thought it would just fluff back up, but it hasn't.
Should I wash him with castile soap and dry it well with a cotton ball? Or leave it and it will be fine? Because I tried just using water again and it is still stuck and wet looking... I just don't want it's hair to grow in weird or anything because he was so cute and fuzzy.
Anyone who has taken care of a baby w/o a mother and can help me, please post back.
