Talking Babies

well everyone,

when I got home from school today, I checked on Rosie thinking she probably didn't have any since she was holding out on me for a little while, day 38 and she had gained over 285 grams...we she had five babies!!! Im so thrilled, they are a few hours old, hopefully they will stay alive. Im so happy about this litter since the last one didn't turn out so well, so please keep your fingers crossed for me, rosie and the babies!


they are so small compared to the last babies, I was pushing a baby closer to the others becuase it seemed to be going on its way out of its nest, and took a quick peek on the and it was a female, finally a female, I didn't check the other ones didn't want to risk anymore than I already have. Im going to make myself stay AWAY from the babies no matter how much I want to see them, I would really love for this litter to have a good outcome. please send your warm wishes thanks

the babies are doing fantastic!!! already they are growing, there are two females and three males, the females were smaller than the males, but one of the females seemed to grow and is already bigger than one of the males. since rosie's personality i couldn't help myself in taking a few pics with the flash off, she didn't mind at all and is nursing them right now. i will keep you all updated

the first two pictures were taken on October 1st, the last three were taken yesterday. enjoy

They are adorable! I too am sorry about the lost ones, but remember all things happen for a reason, whatever they may be.
I absolutely LOVE those pics of them scratching!
