Happy Birthday Runty!!!!

Runty, a baby from my first litter of gerbils, turns 2 today! 8) Her sibblings, Porto and Phoebe have already passed away a couple of months ago 8(. Runty is the only one I have left from my first litter. I find it weird that she was the weakest of the litter, and had a gimpy paw... yet she's the one that has lived the most... however, Porto, who was the chubbiest and strongest of the litter was also the first to go. Anyway... celebrating Runty's 2... here are some pics (sorry, I didn't had time to take pics of her today... it is also my niece's birthday... lol)

First baby picture... note how Porto (dove/grey) is the biggest and Runty (black) is the smallest... she had almost catched up with her sibblings in this pic.


Here with her daddy, Kuzco... Kuzco loved his babies, but I swear, he knew Runty needed help and he saved her. On several occasions I saw him taking Porto and Phoebe and lying with them leaving Runty alone with Martina so she could reach the nipples and nurse. Kuzco's so clever!


Here Runty is playing dead... she likes to give me little scares like that...


These are the most recent pics I have of her... from one day that I took quick pics of everybody right in their own cages...


With then cagemate, Phoebe.... who would also be 2 today if she was still here.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY RUNTY!!!!!!!!

Thanks! Yeah, gerbils are great! Secretly, Runty is one of my fave gerbils.. hehe
She looks a lot like her mom, Martina... when I had that first litter I used to say that I got one little Martina (Runty), one little Kuzco (Porto, the dove/grey one) and one was from the milkman (Phoebe, the REW/White one) LOL!!!
