Yes they are tiny. They were born prematurely 3-5 days. There was 9 in the litter but 7 dies the first night. They were a friends of mine, but when I got these 2, I worked my butt off to make them make it. They now are gaingin2 oz. every 2 days. Still only 14 oz., But I'm soooo pround of them, they came a long way.
