We are born at the end of nine weeks with our eyes and ears tightly closed. We do not have teeth yet, but we can move our head in search of milk. For the first day, mama will give us colostrum that is rich in antibodies which provide passive immunity and help protect us from disease for a the first few weeks of life. Even though we have fur, we can not regulate our own body temperature. If we become cold, we lose strength quickly, so it is important for our people to keep the whelping room around 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit. We are not completely helpless though, as we can use our front feet to crawl towards mama. This crawling helps develop muscles and coordination so we can eventually walk and play. From birth, we have a sense of smell and touch, so we will start ENS and ESI soon. We spend 90% of our time sleeping and the other 10% nursing. Our nose and paws will darken this week. Mama only leaves us to eat, drink and potty. She doesn’t like to be away from us for very long and she keeps our nest perfectly clean. While she is away for a few minutes, we huddle together to preserve our body heat.
