Subject: Iota is also brooding .... set up a nest in ...
In reply to: Agnes 's message, "Re: Another beautiful day here in Pootie Land :-)" on 00:27:37 06/27/07 Wed

(Iota is also brooding .... set up a nest in ...) the bottom section of a 10 pair canvas hanging shoe file that hangs in the community closet. I caught her tearing at the paper towel that lines the shelves in the closet, on Monday (when I change the shelf liners ...). So, I got a fresh roll of paper towel, and started handing her a piece at a time. Iota would greedily grab the paper, then bunch it up in the back of the shoe file. I also got her a roll of toilet tissue, and pulled it apart in sheets, like leaves of soft paper. The plain white paper works just as well as cotton -- although IMHO, cotton is easier to move, to examine pups whilst they're still in the nest.

I may move the shoe file to the bathroom, and hang it from the shower curtain bar, to give Iota the same privacy that Mina Scule has. I do wish Iota had chosen a nest box, as it's easier to check on pups in a flip top box. But, she's been using the shoe file since I put it in the closet, so she must feel happy there.

Mina Scule's boy is close to the eye-opening stage. Mina's showing some interest in getting out of the bathroom. Once the pup's eyes are open, I may move Mina and the pup to the bedroom, and hang a nest box in the room, itself, for her. Mina's been very cooperative with this pup. I'm thinking he'll socialise easily.

Little Pipsqueak has been sleeping in my 'extra' pillow, on the bed. She's so funny, in the morning, trying to decide just where she wants to hide another hazelnut -- in my ear, perhaps? Nope, won't fit. Under my neck works better ... then, it's off to sleep for her.

Still no work done on the loft balcony aviary. Might just have to wait until it's a bit cooler. Hard to work outside, just now. Speaking of work, time to feed the horses.
