Cool I've lost my mind.

So I've gone completely insane. :hitself:

I just picked up two one week old male chins whose mother died. They were with someone who was totally unprepared for breeding, much less hand feeding. Mom died in one of the hamster type balls they sell for chins, leaving these two needing fed 'round the clock. I'd been talking to her for the past two days and told her what to do to hand feed, etc. She called me today and asked if I or someone else could take the kits, because she can't feed them as often as they need fed. It was a split second decision, but they're here with me.

I had to share some pics. They're too cute. Obviously I won't be on much since I'll be sleeping in 2-3 hour intervals, so bear with me the next few weeks.

I can't keep them, but they'll be adopted out to wonderful homes once they're weaned. I already contacted a friend who runs a rescue and has some 'reserve' homes in my area looking for rescue chins.

Thanks for the well wishes. So far they're taking the formula very well.

Just not enough room to add two more non breeding adult males, Ariel. Six adults is my limit right now until I've got more room to expand.

I didn't ask, I just tried to help and told them to toss the ball. They had no idea the balls were even problematic ...

That poor mama though. I hate those rotten run about balls. Worst invention in the entire world!

I'm glad they're with you Steph. They're in good hands.

These two are fiesty! I've named the smaller boy Basil and the larger one is Parsley, thanks to my new found love of cooking italian style.
