Even the best laid plans of mice and men…
John Steinbeck certainly knew what he was talking about.
|Hershey and Cimmerian's traveling kits|
Hershey is a first time mom so we were worried with all those regular first-time mom things…like, will she give birth safely? Will the kits survive? Will she reject them? Will she be a big fat meanie like Little Sun was (territorial…not really a bad thing with little ones)? Well, Hershey did what Hershey does…she is a great mom with her same loving personality and has a nestbox full of fat bellied babies.
We timed this breeding to give the kits 3 weeks before we’d have to move them to our new home. However,things don’t always work out as planned and I had to move them at 8 days. We carefully packed up the nestbox, Hershey’s pen, and all her accessories and moved everyone to our new house across town.

Thankfully, everyone is resting peacefully and I can breathe again.
Disclaimer: I don't recommend moving a mother and new kits. This was no fun at all...I think I lost 10 years off my life worrying.
