I photograph the babies in their cage today because they’re too active to stay still if I take them out. They are interested in the pieces of apple that I give them, and take some egg food from my fingers. They are cosy in their nest and only a couple of the babies come out. And, well, just LOOK at this little foot! It’s all grown up and perfect, but shiny and new too. Wow. And their tails are just gorgeously downy. And their ears look so amazingly ratlike. I can feel my heart growing just like the Grinch’s. Sigh.
