Regardless of whether they can survive, if they do, they'll be bothering someone else, just like you. Put them down, it's not like they're endangered or anything....
Pick up one of those plastic storage boxes from Target or Wal-Mart, get one that closely fits your trap and will allow it to be completely submerged. Keep it fulled with water and drown each and every one. Forget the cute, fuzzy tails, they're RODENTS and they ARE the enemy.
It's a bit early for kits yet, besides, they have a low body mass and you probably wouldn't even notice any smell, even if a she already had them. In your case, I think it's better to be thorough and forceful.
