I have a question related to the feed of specie called vole. As far as its appearance is concerned it very much looks like an ordinary rat. The major difference is of the size, the vole being comparatively smaller. However, I have some concerns regarding the feed of vole babies and for this reason I would like to know if a baby vole could be fed on milk.

    A vole is a small rodent resembling a mouse but with a stouter body, a shorter hairy tail, a slightly rounder head, smaller ears and eyes. There are approximately 155 species of voles and are sometimes known as meadow mice or field mice in North America. Voles are small rodents having length upto 3-7 inches, depending on the species. They can have 5–10 litters per year. Gestation lasts for 3 weeks and the young voles reach sexual maturity in a month. Voles are often confused with other small animals like Moles, gophers, mice, rats and even shrews. Since voles will commonly use burrows with many exit holes, they can be mistaken for gophers or some kind of ground squirrel. The average life of the smaller vole species is 3–6 months and rarely live beyond 12 months. However, the larger species, such as the European water vole, live longer and usually die during their second or third winter. As they happen to be mammals so there is a big chance that a baby vole could be fed on milk.
