Rejected Joeys

 Rejected Joeys

We were so excited about our Joeys, and we had two of them, a boy and a girl, but momma rejected them both after a few days out of pouch. We found the male dead in pouch with dad and sister while mom was eating and I suspect he unlatched and couldnt get back on. Sister was doing good until mom kept leaving her alone for extended periods of time, completely unphased by her calls. We tried to hand rear her but were unsuccessful. Now mom is licking at her pouch and is keeping more to herself than before. Im sure shes mourning, but am concerned about her actions.

the "over grooming" of the pouch can be cause by the irritation when the joeys did nurse, but it could also be yeast infection (less likely), so yes, a vet trip might be a good idea

Was it her 1st set of joeys? It's not uncommon for a female to lose her 1st litter...
