We were told
to keep the baby warm (we cranked up the heating) and to keep Benny
away from the nest. This meant keeping Button shut in her cage
when we were out, and only supervised access to Benny.... they really
missed each other!
We found out from Button's previous
owners that she must have had a miniscule of a second's contact with
an un-neutered male - but they were so shocked too! We started calling
the teeny baby 'Boo' (as it was a surprise!) and sometimes referred to
it as The Fraggle!!
We were warned
that as it was such a small litter, the baby might not survive, and
sadly after four days little Boo passed over Rainbow Bridge... when we
were checking the nest more thoroughly we also found another baby that
had passed over Rainbow Bridge at birth we think... but at least they
were together now...
