Battery might not have enough current for turn over. Have the battery load tested at an auto parts store.

Your bendix isn't even pushing up the starter gear like ScrubCadet10 said. You admit to mice and we see your starter isn't working like normal.
OK while looking for the solenoid ( which I still have no idea) I wiggled connections , moved the starter. Worked twice. Now not sure what to think. I know the second I put all back together it will stop. Any thoughts ?

Which tells me loose/poor/mice chewed wiring and or connectors/connections. Or when you jiggled the starter, the starter gear went up and contacted the flywheel momentarily.
