Day 15 – Eyes Opening!

Here we are; it’s hard to see in a photo. This little one has pillowed his head on a littermate. Mostly they are still sleeping but now I see them sitting up on the front legs once in a while and….is that “looking” to see where the light comes from?

The eyes begin to unseal at the corner next to the nose and are only about 1/3 to 1/2 the way open across the eyelid right now. Their eyes are underdeveloped right now and I doubt that they can focus very well. I keep the lights dim, not too bright. Their brains have never had this imput before either, so they are learning how to process the new information–light, shadow, movement, darkness. It’s all new!

Eyes Beginning to Unseal...Open....Blurry Light?
