Minerva's babies are doing so well. This past Friday Crookshanks was 1lb 8 oz, today he was 1lb 12 before breakfast. So I sent an email off to the shelter to let them know they will be ready to be neutered later in the week. I'm torn between wanting them to go back sooner so Minerva can have the larger room once again and wanting to keep them because they have become so people friendly and swarm me when I go into the room. They give me ankle hugs, which just slays me every single time.
Minerva's "add on" babies are doing well. I believe she's back to nursing them because they were so fat this morning and wanted almost no additional food. I made them all go pee (which except for the getting peed on part is a lot of fun because they throw their paws up in the air and are just so darn cute) and gave them what they wanted for food, but they were quite content to just play
This video comes closest to what I do to make them pee, but I don't hold down their front arms, so when you see the kitten throw up it's arms in the first few seconds that is what kittens generally do. I also use a cloth - right now it is a human baby cloth diaper. I know when they are done peeing because they start moving away from that position and wiggling to get be let go.
