Day 5 - November 28
Pikachu drinks formula by dropper to keep up her strength.
I notice that Pikachu leaves her babies during the night to run
in her wheel and other activities. First, she covers them up completely with the
soft, white bedding. Then she leaves for a short while. While she is gone, they
just sleep peacefully. When she comes back, they are glad to see her. They are
hungry for her milk. Looking at the babies closely, I observe that they now have
tiny black hairs growing out from the dark areas under their skin. In a few days,
this will be what is called their black guard-coat.
