This morning Chloe started really nesting. I installed the nest box a few days ago, but this morning she was on a mission to nest!
She had been eating the straw in the nestbox, so I put a few handfuls of straw on the floor for her to eat instead of the nest. Immediately she started picking up the straw in her mouth to make a bundle and arranging it in the box. Right after that she started pulling fur from her shoulders to put in the box.
It’s really interesting that her God-given instincts are so strong that even though this is her first litter, she knows exactly what to do and when and where to do it!
I took a quick clip of her pulling the fur, because she looks cute! She almost looks like she’s dancing.
Note: that annoying noise in the video is just the metal cage creaking.
She is due tomorrow, so tomorrow morning hopefully I will find some babies! I am really excited!!!
