There's no emergency vet clinics nearby???
That would be you best bet I think.

Why was the boy with the female? Unless that was a typo.

Yes, typo. I was walking around my room and i had my female on the couch and the baby on my shoulders.
I sat down to take a drink, completely forgeting she was on the couch, The baby tweeked and jumped off me
Before i knew it he was behind a pillow that she was under and when i got him out I saw a bloody eye
Its happened in seconds
It only bleed for a minute
But still
There isnt a vet that accepts rodents except for like 50 miles
and i cannot get out of here.

If the bleeding has stopped don't worry. If you have ointment for eyes use that in the eye (Polysporin for eyes).

How does the baby's eye look?

If the eye was punctured you can often leave it in and see if it "deflates". Sounds like it was just a scratch and may have missed the actual eyeball. *whew*

Thats what i think. The more I look, it looks like a cut above and to the inner side of the eye. He should be alright, but its still a nasty place for a cut.
