Tabitha & Pumpkin Roll - 1 Kit
Born on December 20, 2020
Tabitha had two babies, but one was stillborn. Her little one is doing pretty well and has been snuggled into a nest of Sukie's angora wool for added warmth since Tabitha didn't pull a lot of fur. If we feel her baby is at risk of not maintaining its body temperature, we will foster it with Primrose's little baby. It's very early, but I'm guessing her baby is a frosty. This is Pumpkin Roll's first time as a daddy Bun, so we are very proud of him and hopeful that he has passed along some wonderful genetics. We will post photos of it in a week or so.
12/22/20...So far, so good! Tabitha's baby is doing well and seems to be well-fed. :)
12/31/20...This little Bun is now named Cool Whip. :D
Primrose & Luigi - 1 Kit
Born on December 19, 2020
Primrose actually kindled 3 babies, in total, but two were stillborn. The little survivor was very chilled, so we had to use some quick thinking to help it warm up. We microwaved two potatoes and, wrapping each securely in a double-layer of fleece so as not to burn the baby, we placed them on either side of the baby in the nest box. They worked beautifully and we are continuing to use one heated potato at a time to help the wee one maintain its body temperature. So far, Primrose has been very attentive and has nursed her baby well. We took her to the vet a few days ago to have them shave the area around her nipples so her potential litter would have easier access to nurse. She has an extraordinarily thick coat, which has been an obstacle to her ability to care for her past babies. We hope that this will make nursing easier and that she will be able to raise her baby herself, rather than it being fostered to a different doe this time around.
With the couple of good looks we've been able to take, it looks like this little one is a broken chestnut who has inherited his/her daddy's adorable moustache.
Single kits are always more difficult to raise because they are more susceptible to getting chilled. We will be keeping a close watch on this tiny muffin and do everything we possibly can to help it along.
12/22/20...Primrose seems to be doing a good job with her baby. I'm going to invest in a couple of hot water bottles to help keep the baby (and Tabitha's) warm and toast for longer periods of time. The potato works well, but needs to be re-heated every 2-3 hours so I'm always worried about sleeping through/ignoring my alarm when it's time for spud-duty.
12/31/20...This little one has been named Moon Pie!
