Shiro Delivers…

…her babies!

O.M.G. Hero Material and I were expecting on Dec 10. But she ended up delivering after seventeen days.

I was quite traumatized at first because I heard a lot of long squeals from Shiro and I saw blood on her. Ack!!!! She even refused her favorite treats. I was about to tear all my hair out when she returned to her nest, squealed some more then came out all svelte, minus the blood.


Hero Material and I have no idea how many she delivered or anything. She made a super nest inside a heated house, and we can’t see. I guess we have to wait at least a couple of weeks.

    When our gerbils popped out their surprises many years ago I believe there were four or five babies.

    Maybe she got pregnant before you figured out that she was a girl.

    Congrats grandma!

    I’m guessing three or four. I heard them squeal for their mommy. :wub: Also one of the babies escaped the nest, and Shiro had to take him back to the nest. It took a while, but she managed.

    Kuro tried to mount her, and I put him in a ball. Later tonight, I’m going to put him in a separate cage. That poor guy. He’s going nuts right now.

    I doubt it because if she were, she wouldn’t have mated with Kuro in front of me…!
