Wow, it‘s great that everything ended up well! :D
The scent thing is actually a myth, it’s okay to touch the babies. The mama isn’t going to abandon them!

update!
gave birth to twelve babies! however only eleven were in the nest when i checked a few hours ago (using a stick to lift up the nest material; i didn’t want to get my sent on them) and they were all full of milk and wriggly. i believe she must have eaten the other one; i know it’s natural but still a bit sad. she’s nursing them fine, but is VERY protective, she bit down on my finger HARD when i went in to refill her water bottle. but i’m sure it’s just hormones and her being protective :) here are pics! i will take more pics and post them in the ensuing days.

I can tell they will be very pretty!

Yeah, since they aren’t showing pigment yet, I’m assuming those three will be PEWS.

They’re getting so big already!! Thank you for the updates ☺
