We have had mice, a pet rat and we capture chipmunks and release them into the forest as
they are ruining our garden. We also capture squirrels and release them elsewhere. We treat
them with kindness and care. Rodents are here for a purpose just as we are. :-)

All they do is pee and poo!

We've had several rabbits, hamsters, and a guinea pig.

I share my room with a Netherland Dwarf rabbit named Theo :) He's the sweetest.

The only hesitation I'd have is whether the rodent would be happier inside or out in the wild. I wouldn't want to lock anything in a cage.
