    Boys waking from a nap..
    I got these boys from a very nice family who loves them to death. Sadly the boys have mites and uri. We gave them a bath and clipped their nails so they don't cause any more damage to their skin. They are chunky boys. Very sweet! Waiting on antibiotics, but gave them something for mites. I've had them for 4 days..
    These are 2 days ago

    Poor boys are still so itchy that when I gently rub them they lick me and very gently nibble till the itch is gone.

    poor boys :( i bet they will be happy when all that gets cleared up! They are cute!

    I used to breed fancy mice. I am hoping start either breeding mice again or try gerbils...i've heard gerbils don't eat their babies as much...man, that got old real fast with the mice. I've had a pet rat before a few years ago, and also have had a hamster (long-haired and short-haired) and 2 pet gerbils. Currently don't have anything. Lol, well, there's my story :p
