Re: adopted 4 babies yesterday!
update today..one of the girls has both eyes open today! and on the down side another one has started weezing some..we had to do a bit of reasearch to find out what to give to her..amoxil was suggested by a rescue group...it seems to be working, we noticed the weezing last night and she got the first dose about 11pm last night, so after 3 doses its better, she just got the 4th dose a few minutes ago and will stay on it till monday at the earliest..
we hope all of the babies have their eyes open next week and look forward to updating with pictures about that time. we also picked up a calicum supplement with vit d3 to prevent metabolic bone disease as the formulas dont containt enough calicum. they will begin recieving this supplement towards the end of next week till they are released back into the wild. with their eyes opening we have moved them into a small amimal crate to give them some room to moves about..the girls have already figured out which end opens for feeding! and if I dont come fast enough one will squeal real loud and as I apprach the cage, all 3 of the girls are at the gate noses and hands pressed through the openings! they are all getting active and will continue to do so. we expext to have to move them into a extra large crate that was loaned and delivered to us by another rescue group in about 2-3 weeks. am hunting semi green branches to install in this large crate for climing, play and chewing.
thats all for now will update soon! and thank you for all the encouragement from all of you! Wife said thanks for most of the recipies we recieved! while none of these babies will never grace our table, I am a avid hunter of their cousins. but not on our property as we feed those around us just to have the enjoyment of their company! they are one of Gods best efforts in our eyes.
As I get Older, I have come to understand why our Founding Fathers chose our countrys motto to be "IN GOD WE TRUST", somehow they knew in the future WE would come to the point that WE COULD NO LONGER TRUST THE ONES WHO RUN IT!
