Subject: Baby update part 2

Hello again. Baby update -- Ms. Bubbles decided that she didn't want the littlest baby anymore. I am now trying to raise him. He is still so very tiny and weak. I am feeding him every three to four hours and he finally seems to want the food. It looks like he might have a problem with his hindquarters...he scoots along, but he can't really walk yet. I don't know if this is from lack of nourishment, or a birth abnormality of some sort. Also, I am thinking he might have a cleft palate or something going on in the oral cavity. When he laps up the formula every now and then a little comes out the nose. I just hold the syringe and let him lap it up as opposed to inserting it into his mouth. His fur has not really come in nicely either; he still has just a fine covering. His two brothers are growing nicely, they come out of the nest box on their own and explore the cage. The size difference is really noticeable; three of the little guy make up one of his brothers. I am hoping with feedings every three to four hours he might possibly catch up or at least do well enough to live a happy life.
