One week old and they look and sound just like guinea pigs – about the same size, smooth and squeaky and snuffling away. They are doing what they should be, growing! All have doubled their weight in 7 days, bang on target. They still have their eyes shut and cannot walk, but they ‘scamper’ around in a very lively fashion.
Luna is, as predicted, a brilliant mum. She loves just hanging out with her babies, even when they are stuffed full and busy sleeping. She makes sure they have plenty of toys to snuggle up to, bringing in all the old teddies even after I had been shopping for new pink toys. Of course she doesn’t mind at all if they wander all over her, so although she keeps them beautifully clean, she might get some poo in her ear 😉
