Well, mama hasn't been doing a good job of taking care of baby, so I have decided to take care of it myself. I'm not really sure how well this will work out, but I decided it was worth a try. So I made some kitten formula, and have been feeding it using a syringe. I have also been keeping it on a heating pad to keep it warm. Here are some pictures I took of it.
Basking in the sun after a nice drink of milk.
Here is a picture of the baby next to the syringe for size.
All snuggled up and ready to go to sleep!
I think it will be a lighter color, and I think it is a boy, but of course, I can't be sure at this age.
No new gerbils for a while now. I am trying to find new home for all of the current gerbils available right now. I am hoping to breed again before the end of the year. Meanwhile, check out my website at ffnftgerbils.com to see if one of my them might be your new pet!
