So the new baby's are not out yet. Liefie looks very pregnant 'again'! Had a little rain yesterday.
I'm sure computers were designed by woman they are so full of S... , I lost a lot of files the other day, they apparently went corrupt. So if you did a meerkat tour around the 17th , 18th of november, i am very sorry your photo's have been lost, or they work for the government because they are corrupt.
Will keep you posted on the baby's cause they should be out any day now.

Lactation, ovulation build a nation

A meerkat can conceive while she is lactating, she can fall pregnant within 24 hours after giving birth. Gestation period of a meerkat is +- 75 days and Liefie had baby's precisely 76 days after the last baby's were born. The previous baby's were born on the 25th of August and the newest batch on the ninth of November, so do the math.
Every thing else is fine, all the meerkats are healthy.

Fantastic news

Nothing to exiting happening around Meerkatville. Liefie's pregnancy is progressing very well. All twelve members is still fat and healthy.
We had one run in with a aprox 1,5m cobra but it was resolved very soon.
The fantastic news is that i have been given go ahead on The meerkat and wildlife sanctuary on De Zeekoe property. Now it is the red tape and miles and miles of Nature conservation paperwork that we have to go thru. Then only can i start with all the fundraising. So if you know of any potential sponsors, that can sponsor a enclosure at +- R80000 per enclosure and i'm planing about 12 enclosures, Any info or help of any kind will be appreciated. But all fundraising will only happen once i have a red light from nature conservation.
