Snowball’s kits started arriving on Sunday, May 25, at dinnertime. Unfortunately, we had the missionaries over, and we couldn’t run in and out to check the kits without being rude to the elders. Snowball produced a total of nine kits, and three died. We gave one of the kits to Tootsie to foster, so Snowball is now nursing five kits. At four days old, the kits are now little rolly pollies. Snowball is doing fine. We have learned a lot.
Snowball, as you may recall, is a ruby-eyed white (REW). We bred her with Cookie, who is a broken chocolate. We believe her kits to be the following colors: three self chocolates, one self lilac, one broken chocolate, and one broken lilac or blue.
