thanks a lot cruiser, I do not plan on keeping him past noon today especially considering he seems much better suddenly I'm so happy for him. I would release him now but my boyfriend rescused him therefore I know he would be upset if I let the mouse go without him. However if he tries to escape I'm going to let him go I didn't think he'd make it when I first put him in the plastic container it looked like he had a seizure then was on his back but he must've just been so tired from swimming in the skimmer for who knows how long... He's still grooming himself back t his normal ubber fluffy self though so it doesn't seem like he's too upset about being in the contaner just yet... it was so cute when he saw my bf rescue him this morning his eyes got huge like oh my gosh how'd you know I was in here...

Oh and btw I gave him the lettuce for the water content I figured he would need it after swimming at least a few hours in the skimmer

Again thanks everyone who gave input I and snapshot the mouse appreciate it...

Good to hear your letting him go, so many people think their doing the right thing keeping them. Best thing you can do it make sure he is completely dry than let him do, so he doesn't get a chill, which would very likely kill him. Makes me miss my little mice I raised.

Yeah that's why I brough him in and put him on a heating pad right away wrapped in a soft dishtowel which he's currently wraped himself in sort of... he's so cute though he lives near our back door in a hole under the planter and ryan my bf saw him a few times before but my first time was yesterday and immediately we both knew it was the same mouse in the skimmer. When I brought him in after his seizure episode or whatever he was on his back front paws in the air shivering then breathing very hard and rapid then very slowly but he's so tiny you could see his heart beat. He's much better now presumably obviously and almost dry.

If he's going to die, then at least make him comfortable when he goes. I say keep him warm and comforted.

He probably was just scared/shock and cold not seizures, if he's moving around he's good, if he's sitting or laying really still or crying (you know it when you hear it) than that isn't good. Mice don't need their mothers for very long, once they are all haired out and cleaning and eating, they offend wonder away from the nest any how.

well my boyfriend just dropped into the house for a min and so we released him as he was totally dry and moving about and he zipped around the planter like the horse does when we turn her out so I bet you were right he was probably like OMG they're going to eat me I thought I was going to drown but now I'm eaten lol. Thanks again I can't tell you how much happier I am knowing he's going to be at least ok for now. Hopefully no more pool skimmer for him...

Also lucky for him he's a cute fluffy baby mouse lol not a rat

What a great story.
I will admit though that I read the title as baby moose so imagine my surprise when I saw the picture of your moose.
