  4. >I am such a witch. I watched this for a while waiting for one to jump up and do something. Say, dance or eat the others. Or maybe break into song.

    I guess being cute isn’t enough for me.

  5. >Is this a live feed? The one in the blue collar just slept as far as I could see! (All very cute, though, with their curly tails.)

    >Yesterday I thought the one in blue was dead, but he twitched after a while and today he is at the other end of the crate. They are too cute! Roger, are you getting the blue one? Where did you find this anyway? How can that bed be so white? I’m guessing it is a live feed?

    >It is a live feed–sometimes it’s down but you can watch a slideshow or recorded segments. I think I saw it on

    They take turns being bossy, although this morning the mother came into the crate and the little buggers were all over each other trying to latch onto a nipple.

    >I put this up on my classroom’s Smartboard this afternoon while my kids worked on their mural for The Graveyard Book. Quite a contrast!

  9. >Well, I WAS going to watch the divine Simon Schama’s History of Britain tonight, but I think I might just watch puppies. I might need another computer just so I can keep this on all the time.

  10. >My husband watches a hencam. I’ll offer him this.
