spring is full of baby animals

little snowy white bunny

our old pony pinky has a fine little filly
mama mira had 6 babies this time - here are three of them.
salt & pepper
our precious molly's precious babies - 4 girls in one batch!
pepper had only 2 this time - little striper looks like the papa kitty that was hanging around.
sabin has named them harry & louis after her favorite members of 1D.
hen & chicks
we had a trip to the vet today with our beloved molly cat. she was obviously not feeling well this morning, so i called the vet as soon as they opened. they saw her immediately and diagnosed mastitis. she got a shot of antibiotics and painkiller and i brought home pills for the next ten days as well. her temperature was 41°C (normal is 39°C and while that doesn't sound like much difference, it's a LOT for a cat). the vet assures me she'll be fine and that what's best for her is to keep nursing her kittens. she's not sure she agrees, but she's doing so for now. i bought a bottle and milk replacer, just in case. i don't want to lose any of them.
