Introducing Leaf and Olivia! They have been happily living with me for a week now. Leaf is the bigger girl and Olivia is the one with the spot on her belly. They are absolute sweethearts. Here are the best of the pictures I have taken so far:

Thanks. I change the setup a little every time I clean just to keep it exciting. They seem to enjoy it.

Wow, they look super tiny in these pictures! It's amazing just how fast they grow. I'll try to take pics soon (I know I'm super slow, but they'll come). The girls are an absolute dream. Olivia has opened up and now I would almost say that she is the more affectionate one. They love coming out and playing with everyone. I bring them on the couch when my roommates and I are hanging out/watching a movie and they climb all over everyone. They are also getting really good about going to the bathroom in their litter pan, even peeing in there. When I call their names they usually come.

The other day I had Leaf on my palm against my chest and within a minute little Olivia got jealous and pushed/climbed/squeezed her way in. It was so cute. A few days before that I was sure she had escaped though. I started desperately pulling everything out of the cage and still couldn't find her. Turns out she wedged her way under the bedding towels in the back corner under the wheel. The first time I felt there I didn't even notice her!

Speaking of the wheel, they really seem to dislike it. I have yet to try the yogurt drop technique, but I have my doubts... When I put them in it they practically teleport out they're so fast. Any ideas? Or should I just admit defeat? I'd like them to have something more to do during the day when I'm at work, although they seem happy.

I'm so glad they're doing so well!! its odd that the wheel is being wasted though, they'd spend most of their tim on it with mama when they were getting big enough to find you! I'm really excited that your litter training them too, i've gotten the 3 remaining girls and mama to use their litter box, so it must run in the family.
:D
