It's been ages that I've written a post, and today I have a big announcement. Drum roll, please...!
I'm a mom now! No, we didn't plan this.
Huckleberry, Snuggleberry or Snugglebert as we lovingly call him is slowly but surely growing up!
I am very proud that he is still alive, that might sound odd, but you should always keep in mind that our little friend is a wild animal.
Huck is no longer so frantic about milk; he found great interest in nuts. That's why we feed him a mix of oatmeal, hazelnuts, seeds and other grains we carefully handpicked ^^
Nevertheless, we still try to offer him milk every 3 hours and give him a little or extend cuddle. Belly rubs are extremely important; you can use a moist cotton swab for that. Huck likes to climbs in hoodies and makes himself comfortable in your sleeve or a crease to sleep and probably shit in.
Thankfully our sleep schedule is getting back to normal now.
@Fraenk was extremely determined, I, on the other hand, had a difficult time getting up in the middle of the night, being productive and especially awake throughout the day plus be in a good mood.
To hold such a fragile, little life in your hands is exciting and precious.
Huckleberry is getting stronger and more independent every day. His ears are growing! Oh, how fast they grow! He becomes more sensitive to noise and is quicker, quite speedy I would say. You have to keep an eye on him because he is a real whirlwind and snugs away quickly. We have now put him in a larger box, with several possibilities to hide, play and sleep.
He still has the electric blanket, just because we want to spoil him a bit - the perks of being an only child. I will post some updates now and then, cute pictures for the 'awws" included ;)
So, have you ever raised an animal before? Do you have any tips for us? Leave me a comment down below.
Here is a bonus childhood memory video for the feels. Reminds me so much of Huckleberry when we first stumbled over him, like literally.
