At 3:00 on Monday, October 27, Holly's Cinnamon went into labor. I thought her labor would be quick and easy, like her last one. However, she was in the box for a long time. Over half an hour. When she hopped out, she had one stretched, big baby at the front of the box. Luckily two were healthy and alive, warm and snuggling together in the back of the box. It was the color I was really hoping for in this litter - a solid blue tort.
The next morning, Tuesday, when I went out to feed the rabbits at around 9:00, I noticed a fourth baby with the placenta still attached on the wire. It was long and big like the third one. She must have had a difficult night. I took her out of the cage to check on her and make sure she didn't have anymore babies. She was clean and I didn't feel anything in her tummy. While she was out of the cage I also took out the dead baby.
The babies are two days old today. Of the four, two babies are alive and well. They are healthy, toasty warm, and CHUBBY! Oh my goodness, these are the FATTEST babies we've had so far! And they are going to be spoiled. So spoiled. We're used to handling 5-6 kits; with only 2, they're going to get constant attention!
On to the pictures, taken today. These two are so gentle, sweet and cute! Tomorrow I'll take a nice warm photo shoot with some props to make them extra cute :)
