Well, Whale and Pippa were constipated. What turds they had were like pelleted concrete. We took them to the vet today; earlier we'd seen a worm on Whale's butt. The vet (who looks remarkably like Reese Witherspoon 40 years later) said they were very constipated and if it went on for too long it would have killed them. So we've got a sugar solution as she said Karo syrup is bad for them. Apparently it doesn't go into the skin, or maybe it DOES, but either way it's different from karo syrup. I'm supposed to give them .1 millilitres a day, and double the dose if they don't get better. Seems weak but eh. Also they have tapeworms, so we're supposed to dose them in 2 weeks. The vet says they look about 2 weeks old. Pippa is 7 ounces, she gained an oz from yesterday, and Whale is 8. But as soon as they poop I'm sure they'll be half that. Um, she also said Pippa is probably a boy - uh oh- and Whale is a girl. Looks like I got the names mixed up. Whale is an ugly name for a girl.
