Five new additions.

Five adorable new additions are doing great.
Big thanks to Mark and his son for getting them here! Their den was in a bank owned property. The bank had mom trapped and killed, of course.  A terrible, very un-thorough company was used, because they obviously didn't even bother to check for the babies that were left there to die. (Or if they did, they didn't care!) Lucky for them though, Mark was one of the contractors sent in to work on the house the next day! Upon hearing a commotion, he located and rescue these cuties from the wall.  They were in perfect shape! It's obviously mom wasn't gone long. In fact, if I didn't know what actually happened, I would suspect a case of kidnapping, as most kidnap victims are often in great shape as well, having been taken from a mom that was doing her job. One night of trying to deal with the reality of taking care of "Oh such cute little babies, I want them!" and the kidnappers are quick to dump them on us!
If we knew the name of the pest control company used, I would spread the word to stay away from them, but unfortunately we don't.
At least these guys are safe and sound now!

Two girls and five boys have adjusted well and are taking their bottles great now. They are just at that stage where they love to play and wrestle a little instead of just falling asleep right after a meal, so of course I can't stop taking pictures of them! Enjoy!

    BTW: I wrote you a week or so ago about my wild raccoon having babies in my garden shed. I like them there, but she got nervous with all the extra attention and moved the baby raccoons from my garden shed. She has them in a brush pile two houses down. She still comes to the back porch each night for the food bowl I have for her and for the earthworms all over my tropical garden. Plus she loves my three ponds.
    I hope she brings the kits by someday soon. They are about 2 1/2 to 3 months old by my estimation.
