CongRATs! Isn't it amazing how these special cases find their way to you? Any idea how her cheek broke?

My assumption is that when I went to visit my mom with the entire Extended Family there was a wildie in her home (country) that I wasn't aware of.  Little Pele stuck her wee nose through the bars and the Wildie bit through her muzzle and probably yanked due to the swelling and trauma on the side opposite the bite :(  I heard the shriek and ran for the cage (moved it to safe place right after) My poor baby girl...I held and cuddled her for days, gave her metacam when she stopped gasping, let her suck formula off my hand when she could...a very scary time for us both.

the bite caused some really crazy trauma, and I am starting to think nerve damage to her mouth, etc. 

New pics of my girly...she seems better, brighter and stronger and she's growing daily now!!

Last night she weighed 80 grams!!

Dec. 31st, sleepy cuddles in mom's hand.  Also some gentle kisses.  :heart:







We lost her next oldie (Patience was 3 years old!) so I gave her even older sweet man Coyote...she promptly started licking him.



Then the following morning, as I sat with the laptop in my lap...she crawled up and was underneath the laptop near my hands hoping for some scritches :D

I love the pictures you post!  You always post wonderful pictures.   :heart:

I'm glad to hear the vet appointment went well last week.  Pele can use some good vibes, and I'm so glad she has you and your oldies to help her grow.

She's certainly looking better now than she did in that first photo.  I hope she has a swift and complete recovery. Pele is truly blessed to have you looking after her.

Pele is still gaining and growing, and unfortunately still sneezing and making noises. :/

But she was a happy little camper tonight. I let her have her Coyote for awhile then we played under the blanket :D

She's moulting right now as well, so you can see her pink skin in a hoodie pattern over her back and head...soo funny!  I cannot catch it on camera though.

Somebody wants to play

She's 97 grams this morning...woohoo!!!  She is 9.5 weeks old and has a young girl's body with her funny hamster-like face  :heart:

And onto the pics...





You can really see the damage in his pic

These are just quick pics (not pretty as she's a messy eater and I was in a hurry...no time to clean up this morning).

I think I made her FAT.  She looks like a white Syrian hamster at times LOL I weighed her last night and she's 115 grams!

Hopefully it's "pre growth spurt" fat!  ;)

I don't think she's fat--she looks like the perfect weight to me!

I think your right BigBen. I decided to close my eyes and feel her body and she feels solid but not fat. I am always worrying about this precious girl who entered my life so unexpectedly that all my years of experience fly out the window and I act like I'm a newbie again  :yelcutelaugh:

What great shots!  Especially the middle one, which makes her look endearingly fierce, when she obviously couldn't harm a fly.

Aww Pele is a darling:) I'm happy she is doing so well. I'm a Pele fan, keep those updates coming. Who is her best rat friend, did she bond with another rat in particular?
