Sorry. I personally, wouldn't be too worried about it. It was a fresh kill. It's just like any other animal. If you'd let your LO touch a hamster or a bunny, think of it that way. But yeah, ick.

Weird, I didn't get a notification of the reply. But yeah, you do have sort of a point. It was "fresh". we love animals and petting zoos, and he's gotten a mouthful of kitten fur many times! The real "ick" is.. this was not an "intact" mouse!! I wouldn't be thrilled about letting him put raw meat in his mouth :/ I briefly googled for diseases that could be spread from rodents to humans, ended up on a CDC site, but within a minute or 2 left because that was only going to freak me out!
OMG ugh!! I think I'd call the doctor just to make sure, and watch for diahrrea. When he is dating you can use this story :)
drowning in hormones with 4 daughters and an understanding, loving hubby. also some dogs. my life is crazy and we are always learning.
i would put the mouse in the freezer, just in case you need it for some type of testing, and i would call the local health officials and ask them, they might n=know anything that is particular to your area.
other than that i would take a long deep breath and know that most of the time humans are really strong creatures and we can get thru most things just fine.
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!
