Pregnant Mice

So it is official Siobhan is pregnant.The girl who gave them to me warned she may be pregnant.But when I got them,they were slim little girls and I pretty much took what she said with a "grain of salt".

Saoirse is also getting a belly,although hers is much smaller.I am not sure if she is pregnant or just pudgy.I am hoping the latter.Siobhan definatly has the pear shape going on and her nipples are visible.I am not sure when she got pregnant or anything,but I give it a couple of weeks for the babies.

I have the two girls in a 33 gallon tank and I do have another 33 gallon tank,a 15 gallon and a couple of hamster cages...so space is no issue.But I do worry abit.Hopefully all goes well with the pregnancy and babies.I am sure it will.But knowing me,I still worry.

Females are all staying for sure.As for the males,I am going to try to rehome them.If I cannot rehome them,then I will keep them too.But in reality I don't want males...hence why I got the females in the first place!

i hope if you have as litter they are small litters so that way you wont have a lot on your hands. They can have lots of babies. maybe you will get really lucky and have all females or very few males.
Good luck.
Diamond

I think you are in the wrong place buddy.
You are the weirdest cat I ever seen.
Now matter how big or small wierd or normal we or animals may be we can learn to love and get along and love is what makes it all worth wild. Becuase Beautie is in the eye of the beholder an no one is ugly or more prettyer then anything eals we are all equal. There are some ugly people and things but that is becuase man kind makes them this way do to thier actions.

Aww Vanilla, congrats, in a round about sort of way. I'm sure they will have only the best. I've never had mice, but they are cuties! And of course, we'll get pictures of the little sausage babies right?
We all love babies!!

Aww you'll be a grandma soon. How lovely!

A little worry is bound to happen with any sort of pregnancy. I'm sure you'll be a wonderful midwife though!!

Thanks and yup,there will be pictures of course!

Even though I am still a little stressed about it,today when I was watching them and playing with them,I also started to get that little bit of excitement coming through.I am curious as to how many there will be and their colors/markings.

I also think it is just Siobhan who is pregnant.She is obviously pregnant now.I will try and get a good picture,but have to recharge my batteries first.But the other one,I don't think she is pregnant now...just a tad pudgy.She is not getting bigger.

Breeding is not something to take lightly.

Thanks!

Li'l Siobhan is a mini golfball now.
She is also the friendlier of the two,so hopefully her friendliness passes on to the babies!
