"It's the middle of February in Cambridge, Mass. There's still ice and frozen snow piled along the sidewalks, but not on the patch of soil where a concrete square had been removed from the sidewalk to allow a planting. As I approached that bare piece of earth tonight I was drawn to a white puff lying in the dirt. When I bent close enough to realize it was a mouse I was surprised that it didn't run off, and I assumed it was dead. Had someone else thought that it was dead also, and put it out in the trash, or was someone carrying it in his pocket and it crawled out? I gave it a little poke and was rewarded by seeing it begin to breathe rapidly. So I scooped it up and put it in my glove and put that in an inner pocket of my fleece. What else could I do? The temperature is in the 20's and he was just waiting to be some cat's midnight snack. I'm not sure that a mouse is just what I need at the moment, and who knows, he may have escaped from some lab at Harvard where he was infected with some bizarre and deadly contagion. But the warmth seems to have revived him and he seems quite comfortable in a heap of toilet paper with a little clump of oats and a tiny slice of apple, inside one of my Tupperware containers which now has a perforated cover. On your advice I'm planning to leave him alone except for necessary feeding and cleaning while he recovers from his great adventure. I have you bookmarked in case I need some more mouse rearing advice. "
