Kit watch!

I'm going to be following the progress of a litter of ferret kits from birth until adoption. The mother is a standard copper roan mitt and the father is a semi Angora silver roan panda mitt.
The kits were born on the 12th April 2012 to a first time mum. It was a large litter, 13 kits in total! They are born blind, deaf and totally dependant on their mum. They are covered in a fine white hair, their true colours will develop as time goes on. All they can really do is squeak at this point. Fun fact: newborn ferrets are small enough to fit on a teaspoon!
Want a look? I bet you do!
The litter at one day old.
Aren't they adorable? Let me know what you think of them! I'll give you an update with a recent picture shortly!
