To finish a story that Laura started earlier today – when we bought Angel last night (Savannah’s new pet mouse) we knew we were in for an adventure since she was pregnant. The woman at the store guessed that Angel would have her babies in about a week. I figured that was enough time for Angel to get adjusted before we would have to stop handling her while the babies were in their infancy. (We were told that handling the mother after the babies were born might make the mother become aggressive toward the babies.)
Angel had her babies today (probably very close to the time Laura published her post). They are two cute pink squirmy things right now, but we expect to enjoy watching them grow until we have do decide whether to keep them or to sell them.
