My weekend was okay, Besides being sick for a few days! Hermione has me worried, she isn't eating as much, but she doesn't seem like she is starving herself. She will eat only a little while im with her (she would rather play more!) and she eats more while she is in her pen (at night time)!
I'm sorry you were sick. Colds seem to be going around right now. Ferret's can not catch our colds but they can catch the flu.
Females eat very little. Only about 2-3 ounces a day at most and some even eat less. As long as her energy levels are good and she is pooping well then that may just be what she needs to eat. Sit with her and try to figure out just how much she is eating. Measure out one ounce and see if she eats that much. If you're leaving food out for her then she might prefer to have several small snacks throughout the day instead of one big meal at breakfast and her meal during the night.
I have two girls who prefer to eat at night also.
Little piggy Ron is a growing boy and will definitely pig out for awhile.
How are they doing with slivers and chunks? You should be increasing the size of the slivers now and decreasing the amount of soup at this point.
Is Hermione still holding out for soup or is she eating slivers better now? You mentioned her poops have a little liquid. Add a little more eggshell or bonemeal powder to the soupie recipe. See if that firms up her poop. If you see any green poop then let me know.
No green or "slimy" poop. I printed the poop guide and have it next to there pen.
Her activity is still high. (Run around my room and chase the cats!) Run won't touch the soupie anymore, he is eating small chunks, hermoinie on the other hand, is still refusing chunks and slivers, but loves the soupie... She will only eat the slivers if I'm hand feeding them to her, which I have been doing nightly (about an oz) she is eating a good 3 oz if soupie throughout the day.
Your little Diva is enjoying all this attention. Put out a plate of slivers and chunks and just pour some soupie over it like a gravy. See how she likes that. 3 ounces is a good amount of food for her, she's doing well then.
Ron is eating just like a baby should. Have you tried any wingtip with him yet? He should easily be able to chew some of the tips.
Yes! I'm so sorry I haven't responded in a few days, my laptop crashed!!! And I was away from home most the weekend, was in a really bad service area so couldn't get online from my phone. But I'm home now, and my new laptop is being delivered today
I'm checking in to make sure that everything is okay. You haven't posted since Feb 22nd and I really need you to post more or please let me know that you don't want to continue in the program. We can put you on hiatus or lock up your thread until you are able to come back.
I won't be mad at you and you won't get into any trouble, lol but there are others on the waiting list and if I don't hear from you then I have to wait three weeks before I cut you loose.
Hugs to Hermione and Ron and I hope everything is alright with you.
@chibisaurus We're at about two weeks with nothing heard from you. I'll have to lock up this thread in the next week if I haven't heard from you. Please pop in and let me know that everything is okay. :thankyou:
