After last week’s baby gerbil massacre, my expectations were low when Squirrelley and Snowball had a new litter. It looked like only one baby survived the birth, putting the gerbil population at 17. The next day one of the babies from Squirrelley’s first litter back in July 2015 died. Her sister remains healthy. This morning, the new baby died.
This wasn’t nearly as bad as last week but is a far cry from good.
