I appreciate all your concerns and advice big time. Although my mom is a well seasoned cat midwife and many kittens have passed through her there are always new inputs to this.
My parents went on a short trip and my brother took over. The're doing fine.
The idea is to get the pic exactly like you mentioned guys, with a desk lamp or a flash light, no camera flash.
I think Dino will be OK with it. By now they're a bit stronger those beautiful rats. Can't wait for them to send me piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiics. I'm so impatient. They should be back today so I'll start bugging my mom since I want to see the babies so badly.
As soon as I get the pic or pics I'll post them here.
I'll also let my mom know to stroke the kittens often (with clean hands of course
) We want them really well socialized to be able to rehome them when the right time comes.
