    I was to the point yesterday that I didnt even think he was going to make it through the night. He did and he is still alive but he isnt walking yet. He mostly just flops lays around. On another note though he is brighter eyed. Yesterday he closed his eyes a lot but today they are wide open. I am confused because on one hand he seems better but on another he doesnt since he is not walking. I took some new pics of his his bottum today. Do you think it looks better or worse? I feel so bad for the poor thing.[​IMG]

    He is pooping now so he must b digesting okay. He stands for a few seconds then flops over.

    How long should it take for him to be able to walk? He's like 2 days old now.

    Just keep him seperated until he seems healthy. Dont pust him to do anything he dosent want to do.
