A Word of Caution
We had a bit of a shock this afternoon when Mira discovered one of the babies had a string of cotton wrapped tightly around its hind leg. I have used old cotton tee shirts for supplemental nesting material from time to time because it’s natural, and the gerbils like to chew it up. I will never use it when our pair is raising extremely small babies again. It appears that the baby got it’s foot through a loop of thread and kicked around until the loop tightened. Hopefully, you haven’t had this problem before.
