Caring for a Rescued Baby Mole

My cat had caught a baby mole and we saved it. He is in a bowl with a towel and I'm not sure how to take care of him.

This one will depend on how old the baby mole is.

  1. If the baby is rather small you'll need a box, a towel, and a hot water bottle.
  2. Fill the hot water bottle to your body temperature. Don't make it too hot. Put this in the box and put the towel on top of the hot water bottle. Afterwards, put the baby mole on top of the towel.
  3. You will need to make a homemade kitten forumula to feed the baby. You can always buy this at your local vet stores.
  4. You will prepare the formula and feed this to the mole using a syringe.

  6. When feeding the baby you will hold it in one hand and drop the formula into the mouth with the other hand.
  7. Just keep checking the water bottle and make sure it is not getting too cold. The mole needs heat and this is the only source of heat you are supplying the baby.

Put it in a small box. Feed it bits of fruit and vegetable. Do not forget a small bowl of water.

Leave in the box a couple of days so it gets used to captivity. You should get a cage with an exercise wheel and some toys. Feed them cereal every morning and piece of fruit.

You need to find a local animal rehabilitator. If you call a local Vet they usually know who to call.
