Well the day has finally come. We have our first official singleton. The dreaded single kit. In the brink of winter. Sigh. We of course followed protocol and had another doe due, but she missed. Our doe was due today, but I knew she had a tendancy to kindle early. So I woke up at 6 only to find 3 very cold stiff kits. The doe did not pull any fur for them. One was a peanut, the other look stretched. But I figured I would still try to warm the other one up. Worst that could happen is it never revived. Well to my surprise, about a minute under warm water and it began to slowly wiggle. I was stunned. I really in all my days, never have seen something like this. It really seemed dead. So I continued warming the baby, and it was struggling for the first 20 minutes, but then, it snuggled up against my husbands overly warm stomach, and went to sleep. We have set up an incubation area for it. Not sure how this is going to work out in the long run but for now our little "Zombie" is hanging in there.
