That's right, my babies are 4 weeks old! They have a new favorite game- making me worry. I know it's mostly because I'm a 'new mom' but some things really make my hair stand on end.
1. Crawling up the couch. Note that they're bigger than a hamster, yet smaller than a guinea pig..
2. Not accepting all their medicine. As I've posted, there is a runt in the litter, who was severely underweight. Although she has gained quite a bit, her condition could still go either way. She is 'supposed' to receive antibiotics, Nutri-Cal, KMR, and Pedialyte. I'm also supposed to reserve time for her to nurse from mom. Sometimes I feel bad force feeding her out of several syringes, and leave the KMR and Nutri-Cal out of the picture. (You can tell who 'Baby' is)
3. Although they're 'only' four weeks old, I worry that they aren't weaning or using the litter box at all. One ('Tan') likes to nibble on the litter, and although it's non-clumping, I like to worry. Mom ends up eating all their food.
4. They make me worry that I'm not paying enough attention to Frank and Sammy.
