    Perfect! Great job!

    When I had several babies I colored the white fur on the inside of a rear leg with a different colored sharpie. It was just a dot, and then a corresponding colored dot on the top of the column for my record keeping.

    Has anyone had their pinkies peel? We assume it is normal and all three are in different places. And nothing that is an obvious cause for alarm but we did notice. It's not getting worse anywhere like spreading. They live on a heating pad in a blanket pouch so they just could be dry from that?

    Do you have the heating pad under their container set on low?
    What type of container do you have them in?
    What I do when this happens is I take a small baby food jar,
    clean it out well, and then put a (small piece) of damp sponge in it. Put that on
    the same side as the heating pad, and that will give the container
    a little moisture. Some poke holes in the top of the jar. If you do
    this, make sure that the sharp points are facing inside the jar and
    not outside. Others will leave the top off completely. Probably
    safer to poke a lot of holes on the top.
    Make sure to feel the sponge daily so it's stays damp.

    Yes always on low with the heat, half on half of in case they get hot and want to crawl to the cooler side. It is a zip up container that has mesh windows for circulation. Fleece blankets. I will try the damp sponge. Thank you!
