For a couple days she was peeing off the shelf but then She decided to make a liar of me about her not peeing the bed and soaked it then complained till I changed it. So I put the new housebed up with a pee pad inside for easily changeable bedding. Now she calls me right after she has peed and leaves the nest with baby on her and I change the pee pad in there. She goes right back in after. At least she appreciates me as a housekeeper now.

Someone asked on length so when he was on mom Wednesday got a rough measure. 6" long shoulders to butt. Head adds maybe another 3 inches. Didn't measure tail length.

A bit dark but you can kind of see his mouth stretched out.

She sleeps on her back a lot now. I think so baby has free access to nipples and she wont need to wake up for him. Not sure where he is in the shot, I guess behind her head and under her tail.
