Three opened their eyes yesterday, but two are still working on it. Two are trying to stand on their legs, but it is a struggle. Their ears are loosening up from their heads, so they will be able to hear better soon. They have even started to try to play with each other this morning, but they are so uncoordinated that they just tumble over. I think I heard one practicing how to hiss!
The most surprising thing to me is their feet. If you noticed in the earlier video or photos, they just had pink flat skin at the end of their legs. Over the last few days, these have developed into paws and they are even getting little paw bumps on the bottom of their feet. They have little fingernails, but they can not retract them yet, so they don't have any control over them.
Their mother has been fabulous. She protects them when they cry, but she lets me pick them up and play with them all the time. I hope we are building a strong bond of trust. I am trying to make another video, but I am waiting until all eyes are open. They are so cute and sweet! I think they will be developing personalities soon. I can see a little bit in the girl and the larger gray male, but mostly they are still very helpless and dependent on mom.
Can't wait to see all of you at the meeting Thursday. We have so many things to talk about and so many things to celebrate!
