Marty Mouse: Glue Trap Survivor!

On Jan. 5, 2013, I found a tiny, helpless, crying wild mouse stuck on an evil, inhumane glue trap at a local retailer. I tried to free him from the trap but had to take him home to get my husband's help. Marty Mouse slept 30 hours, recuperating from his trauma. Then, he came to life when we put him in a small cage full of toys and food!
