Nimbis x Zeke.

Nimbis delivered 4 kits, 2 males and 2 females, on the 20th of May, 2001. The last kit to be born, a female, came several hours after the others and died shortly after birth.
Zeke was 5 years old like Nimbis. This was the first and only litter he has fathered, he is castrated now. His pedigree is unknown, but his parents were working ferrets.
Zeke is a medium-sized hob and has a short, compact body like Nimbis. He's a sable, a bit lighter than Nimbis.
Unfortunately, the smaller of the male kits (Nicholas) injured his right eye when he was only two days old. Nimbis accidently stuck one of her claws in his eye, and Nicholas has now only one eye. His injury has not caused him any problems, and he is doing fine with just the one eye.
I have kept Nicholas and Alexander (the larger male), while Virva (the female) was placed in her new home in Stockholm on the 18th of July.

25/5, 5 days old.
