I woke up early this morning to find Ivy's kits all outside the nest box. Okay, a few I understand, but all? So I put them back when I fed Momma. I went on about my morning. A little while later I checked on the fuzzy family. There on the floor was a handful of kits snuggled against mom. I know she had already feed them so I can only surmise they are clamoring out themselves. I opened the cage to put them back in the nest, again, and mom came growling. She was fine as long as I left the kits alone. So I figured Momma knows best, gave her a treat and closed the cage door.
I can see her from where I'm sitting. She is grooming a kit and there are a few taking some wobbly hops around the cage. It's a sweet thing to watch.
