Does anyone have a pregnant pet?

Or has had a pregnant pet?

I got four female mice for my birthday and it turned out one was pregnant when I took her home!  Now she's in labor and I'm really excited but anxious, too. I'm just grateful it's not a bigger animal having babies because that would just completely overwhelm me!  

Side note: Once the babies are 2-3 weeks old they'll be going back to the pet store (we buy from a small store that treats their animals well and buys from good breeders so I know they'll be well cared for there).

Eek! Glad it's working out safely for you at least.

We have a dog, but he is neutered.

My family has always believed strongly in responsible pet ownership, so any dog we ever had has been fixed.

Yikes, that's crazy. Hope it goes okay!

As a teen, we took in a pregnant cat. As an adult, I am very big on getting pets fixed. I am against breeding animals.

We got a puppy from a neighbor last year and this year she had seven female puppies of her own. We are still trying to find forever homes for three of her pups.

 Have fun with your little mice! I never owned a mouse, but I had a rat who mated with my sister's rats. At a time I think there were like 50 rats in the house because she had multiple adults mated at the same time. They are soooooo cute!

I don't think it's worth fixing mice since they only live 1-2 years, but I agree with bigger pets!

Right now all the babies look like aliens!!  We have 9 of them, but they'll all be separated based on sex before they can mate.  I don't need a continuous cycle of babies lol!!
