WOODY THE WOOD MOUSE

Codi and I drove to West Linn to pick up a car-load of firewood this morning. It’s already getting into the 40′s at night, and it looks like this could be a very cold winter here again.

I was loading wood from a large stack and as I was about to pick up another piece and throw it into the “keep” pile, I looked down and saw this little grey splotch. I looked closer and saw that it was a baby mouse! It must have climbed into the wood pile to keep out of the rain and cold air.

We took him to PetSmart and Laura helped us pick out some supplies for him – a little house, some milk & a dropper, etc.

His eyes aren’t open yet, but he’s very active, crawling around, squeaking, etc. Codi and I decided to call him “Woody” because I found him in a wood pile. =)

Here’s his first photo:
