Yes! Thats right ... Chickie Loo and the babies in the HOUSE!!! WOOOOO
Its a big fun story and I promise to tell you all of it.
Momy here -
Chcickie has had her babies in the igloo on Auntie C's porch. The last several days (yesterday especially) we have been haveing horrible Thunderstorms. One baby has been up looking out the door of the igloo. ButterScotch has an igloo just like the one Chickie has been in so I went though my cat cages to see which one would fit and the door easily go onto ... found one! Took it to Auntie C's yesterday before the first storm. Well C called about 4 thinking that Chickie was being more squirrely than normal and was worried that she was moving the babies. After the second and third storms I went down, looked in the igloo and all 4 were there. So then I waited. Chickie came on the porch, she looked at us through the window. She sat beside the igloo, in front of the igloo, beside the igloo again and FINALLY ... she went in ... I waited ... wanting to give her time to get settled. Then I walked out of the house took the cage door and held it over the igloo opening sliding the cage upto the opening, moving the door so the only place she could go was into the cage. Uncile R tapped on the back side of the igloo and into the cage she went. I put the door back on the cage and got a finger grabbed by an unhappy claw. It was ok though cause after 3 long long weeks of worrying about Chickie and the babies we had her!!
At that point we got the babies out. 4 sweet little babies. 2 girls and 2 boys. 1 black (girl) 1 light grey (girl) 2 dark grey with darker grey stripes ( boys). Except for needing their eyes washed they all are very healthy.
They took a trip to my house, not very far away maybe 1 tenth of a mile. A box with blankets and a litter box was fixed. Food was put out and the babies were put in their new bed. Chickie was brought in and the door to the cage opened, she ran out looked around and looked terrified.
A few hours later I took her some wet food. She was on the bottom shelf of the bookshelf right next to her babies. From that spot she can see the whole room, especially the door and the babies. A few hours later I checked on her but she still had not eaten.
This morning I took her more food but she had not eaten what she had. In 12 hours shes not eaten, drank or used the box. However the babies looked fat and happy so I think she did feed them.
