So they chewed through the bin and I spent half the day chasing down rats.Of course one decided to have her babies too.Luckily she was in a piece of tubing so easy to find.Only one 4 week old juvi unaccounted for now.The attic also used for storage so there are boxes everywhere to hide in.

But I did notice that one female is super skinny.She just finished up nursing her first litter of about 11 babies, not a huge litter really.But Ive never seen one get this skinny after nursing.She has lot of access to good food, including extras I throw in like shredded cheese and fresh veggies for the pregos and nursing moms.

Any thoughts.Im tempted to feeder her off because I dont know if shes sick, she doesnt act sick, or sneeze or anything.
