I need help with a baby mole he/she looks about 1 1/2 months old and I can't find anything about how to take care of the little guy. I don't want him to die.

More than likely, from what I have seen from my wildlife rehabber friends, cows milk would be disastrous for this little creature. Your best bet is to find a rehabber near you. Look on this link and call and find out.
Birgit is the director of this great rescue. There is a link and she has a facebook also. she is very good at rehabbing and her page is very informative.
Rehabbing is very difficult, and usually better left for the few hours it take to get the animal to a licensed rehabber, for its own sake and for your own sake also as there are laws regarding wildlife and the fines are very high.
It is so sweet that you are trying to help these animals, maybe there is a wildlife rehabilitation career in your future?

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.
My grandson found a mole that is about 3 inches in length, but has no fur. We know what you feed a full grown mole, but how do we know if this is a small one or an older one?
You probably need to talk to a wildlife rehabilitator to see what to do with it, or if it's even legal for you to have it. In some states, it's illegal for someone who's not a licensed rehabilitator to keep a wild animal, even if it's a baby or injured. Not only that, they might need special care you don't know about. I'm a Facebook friend with a wildlife rehabilitator in my area & it's been a real learning experience about the smallest things that can make or break a wild animals chance of survival.

I just found a baby mole in the dirt hole my kids play in. What do I do with it?
You should report it to the national wildlife aid.
Leave it alone the mother will take care of it!!
if you want to save its life then yes, call wildlife removal though it may take them a day or so to come deal with it because I'm sure they're busy
you could wait and see if the mother comes back and takes him away once she realizes the nest has been compromised
you could remove it yourself. Just make sure you protect your hand with gloves and your mouth with a face mask in case of diseases
If baby moles are alone the mother is likely dead. It's recommended to find baby moles help. Much different than other wildlife where you try to reunite. The only other animal that I'm aware of that you need to rescue babies for is the opossum. A baby will fall off and momma will keep going and never look back. It's rare that you can reunite a baby possum with its mother.
I found an abandoned baby mole in my backyard on my patio and I was wondering what I should do with it. It's either injured or too young to know how to walk yet I'm not sure.
Contact your local zoo, Department of Natural Resources, or Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. I have heard of each of those types of places have suggested plans for similar type animal issues :)
What do you do when the moles are rejecting the milk mixture when I try to feed some to it? I don't know what I did wrong because now I just have one baby instead of two.

My friend and I found a baby mole in a driveway. I think its mom left it there, but I brought it home. I don't know what they eat. Can someone help me?
I have two baby moles. I wanted to know how to tell if its a boy or girl? Also, I am feeding them warm milk. They drank a little bit.
My cats brought a baby mole (I think) home tonight. It's probably not going to survive the night, but if it does, what next?
We have a baby mole and we need to know what baby moles eat. We need to know what to keep it in and at what temperature.
