Good and Bad News

Well.. the bad news first... I found Feta, one of my mice, dead today. I was checking all the cages today, and I found her there. 8( I have lost a couple of my pets this month. Nicolas, my guinea pig, Dragon, my newt and now Feta my mouse. I hate talking about the bad things, so I'll now move on to the good things..

This morning, when I woke up, as usual, what I see first was Deb and Link's tank (cause it's in front of my bed) I looked in and saw the whole family (Deb, Link and the 2 pups) sleeping in a pile. I went to the bathroom and to brush my teeth and when I came back, Deb was away from the rest of the family, and with her there was 3 little pups. 8D I saw her give birth to a fourth one while I drank my ensure and got dressed. I was late (got up late) so I went to my classes. That was at 7:30 this morning. When I came home from work at 2:30pm, there was 5 little pups. 8D. I had taken out the 2 older pups before I went to school just in case... I was not going to be home in a while and I didn't wanted any problems... and since these 2 pups are weaned already, I separated them. Of course, I took pictures of the pups when they were about 8-9 hours old. 8) Here they are:

The other good news is that I talked to my mom today and she told me that my niece discovered a aproximately 2 week old hamster pup in Apollo and Afrodita's cage. I came home today and there is only one (or at least only 1 that I've seen... don't know if there are others hidden) I haven't taken pictures of him/her... but I'll post when I get them. 8)

Oooops!!! I forgot!!! 8D They are baby gerbils. 8) Deb (mom) is a golden agouti and Link (dad) is a Ruby Eyed White. All the babies have black eyes and they are expected to be a mix of Golden Agoutis and Blacks. 8)
