At 8 babies, there are still plenty for a happy brood. In fact expecting 6-8 to make it to full growth is an expected figure.
Its very sad, granted.
But as a fellow Blogger said yesterday, this is nature unfolding in front of us. Eve’s instincts are guiding her through motherhood and these smaller babies – that wouldnt make it – are going and Eve is focusing her attentions on the healthy survivors.
When you have a brood of 13, you cant blame her for this. Times are tough and she is doing her best.
I will photograph my orchid in a following post as I have written on it the names of all the babies lost. I shall dedicate a post to these bubs when the time is right and I am confident that I don’t lose anymore!
The remaining 8 are growing very well it has to be said. There is one smaller baby which concerns me as I dont know whether this one will pull through the crucial stages of growth.
FINGERS AND TOES CROSSED PEOPLE!
The patterns are GORRRRGEOUS!
I cant wait for their fur to proper grow because their coats are going to be DIVINE!
I am also compiling a day by day photo post of the babies so we can see all in one post the progress these little bubbies have made 😀 Its actually so cute knowing how much they’ve grown.
And its heartbreaking that in a few weeks this whole baby experience will be over as the babies will all move on.
At least I will be keeping one myself! Another hammy – WINNER!
Thanks for being patient with the blog if these baby posts aren’t your cup of tea 😛
