16 beautiful lil pips have joined our mischief. Very glad we checked on them. Mama bled a lot. She is no longer bleeding but she soaked through several layers of her nest. As we were removing the soaked papers we noticed a baby's head stuck to a piece of paper. We had to spend about 2 minutes applying warm water to the paper to safely remove iit from the babies face. This baby has a large amount of bruising all over it. Not sure if mama tried to free it.
After putting mama and nest back into the cage we waited to make sure she would suckle the babies again. Didn't have to wait long. She took one trip to litter box them climbed in and settled back to being a great mana. About 2/3 of them have milk bands and those that don't are now latched in nursing.
