4-29-16 Hello, Little Raindrops

Our little family is doing well enough. Summer seems pretty unsure of what she’s supposed to do – she wasn’t really wanting to be with them that much, and she kept laying down for the babies to nurse and getting up after a minute. I moved her and the babies into a large dog crate so that she can be quiet and recover and she has to be with them. Most of the time she likes me to pet her, but occasionally she gets hissy / growly  and swats me. I think she is feeling protective of them, but she’s uncomfortable and not really sure what to do. Some of that bonding that comes with the process of labor didn’t happen with her and her babies. She is letting them nurse, which is a good sign. I’ve been supplementing the smallest one (the ginger girl) just to make sure that she’s getting enough while we wait for Summer’s instincts to hopefully kick in.

IMG_2952Those toes. Seriously, I do not know what to do with those toes.
