Ivory, my blind mini rex has been causing me to be concerned about her for the past two weeks.
This morning found one dead kit on the wire, and she had another while I did chores. Stuck that one in with Ruby's kits to stay warm. Noted that Ivory was doing a lot of circling behaviour, bleeding copiously and just not looking good.
Went to the house to wash my hands so I could see if perhaps she had a stuck kit, when I got back she was lying down looking like she was dying.
Dispatched her and found one VERY large kit inside, and a ruptured tummy. Pulled six kits out of her living. Stuck them in with Ruby. On December 23 brought those kits to Jesse's as he had two does that had kindled and I figured this would give them a fighting chance. Five kits at Jesse's. Of those five I think three? are still alive. I had hoped to put them with Roxie but Roxie was full up with the number of kits that she had already.
All the kits are dark...so expecting blacks or blues. Will have to wait and see what she has. Have told Jesse if he wants to keep one he can. He may or may not, he's yet to decide what he'd like to do.
