I'll do all I can to help you here. Can you give me some additional info? 1) Did this mouse seem outwardly injured? 2) Have you checked your area to see if there are any wildlife resources available? 3) Are the "fits" you're describing seizures?
I'm so sorry to hear this :(I think what is more likely here is that a cat probably caught her. Wild mice otherwise just don't come to humans looking for help. She was likely mortally wounded from the beginning, although your tender care probably kept her around long enough to enjoy her last few days, and it simply took time for her body to cease trying. Mice are EXTREMELY hardy creatures, so milk is unlikely to have caused the demise. These creatures can literally consume small amounts of rodent poison (meant to kill them) and keep on going.I would not feel guilty about this. Whatever caused her to wind up in your care is more to blame than the cat milk. You did everything that you could.If my answer has helped you, please take the time today to leave positive feedback for me. This is the only way that I will be compensated for assisting you.
