little rat type creature

i caught two house mice living in my walls
I released them maybe five minutes away by foot, at the very edge of the forest
are they gonna make it?
They can always just come back and look for a warm corner to live in a different house, right?

    I was gonna get 2 pet mice or rats but I can't, they only live for 2 years and it would kill me to have them die after bonding with them. I'm sure they're great pets and very loving, but that's why I can't do it

      Hedgehogs make nice pets and they live a good bit longer than rats, you can take them on walks outside and he will clear your vegetable garden of slugs and snails. They are a bit moody, but enjoy being petted and resting on your lap.

      At home my bedroom was in the basement and my cats would sit at the underground window sill and watch the mice outside for hours. I want some pet mice they can watch in a cage. Would that be unethical or something?

        The mice would be super stressed and the cats would probably cause problems

          Yes but ultimately the mice are to provide entertainment.

    Why didn't you keep them as pets?

      This is my question as well. OP, buy an aquarium and fill it with sawdust, because when those mice eventually find their way back to your house (and they will), you can just grab 'em and dump 'em in the terrarium. Wallah, free pet mice. The government doesn't want you to know this.

    In the future, find an abandoned structure like a derelict woodpile or a wooden shack. They will be just as happy as in a house, they won't have to deal with the stress of hearing people and they will have plenty of grubs and creepy-crawlies to eat.

    A dormouse or woodmouse can navigate by scent alone and can figuratively "smell" heat, they will get into your neighbours homes and vehicles. So it's a bit annoying. But I know you had good intentions.

      Is this shit true actually or just dumb hicks misinterpreting the unseen mice breeding and replacing the caught mice?

        Brother if you only took them five minutes away, chances are they're already back in your house.

    Sorry, no. They exist very low on the food chain and lived in a protected house all their lives. Moving into a forest environment is extreme survival, and everything they've ever known about shelter, food, and water has to be relearned now while being hunted by pretty much everything.

      They originally came from outside the house.

        that was more than 5000 years ago.
        they have evolved from their original ancestors by adapting themselves to live with humans.
        for example, rats and mice are lineages of rodents that lost the ability to hibernate, since the temperature and food supply are normally secured in the human settlements.

      Mice can't "unlearn" instincts, they'll have no problem finding food and water. Sure they'll probably have preferred to live in a house, but they'll perform at the same level as any other mouse. Which is to say "poorly" but that's not really our fault.
