Speck had four kits, one DOA. She made a poor nest. I fixed it up. Three kits nicely snuggled. Mom fed and eating well.
I finish my chores, check in on Elly, heard odds noises from Speck and found she'd killed one, was eating one, and had a foot off the last one.
Needless to say I removed the remaining kit and gave her to Cherry for the time keeping.
I later fostered this kit to Elly.
