Developmental milestones


Well we have eyeballs..
Can you tell I'm a little partial to this tiny tortie?? Can I call her a tortie since she obviously has white on her? She probably will be "Tortie w/white". I can't wait to see what becomes of her coloring as she gets bigger..

that is if she gets any bigger.  I would worry about her if she wasn't so active.  A few days ago I weighed everyone and they were all around 150 grams except her she was in the 130s.  She just felt light, so I worried.  Meira's belly fur was still quite floofy, so I pulled out my trimmers and got rid of a lot of extra around the nipples.  I've been weighing her regularly, and she is putting on weight.... although when compared to her siblings, it is at an agonizingly slow rate.  Now is this because she's just petite?  or is it because they are monsters? (Long Toes's paw is the size of my fingertip now!!) or might there be something wrong?  I'm going for the first (that she's petite) because as I said, she's active and generally happy.  She's got a strong grip and a loud voice.  This was her weight on Wednesday, and I was going to get photos of all of them, but my battery died so you'll have to settle for just the girls.
164g
214g - another photo has her at 222g
I then weighed little Miss Mom's Favorite in oz and found she was just shy of 8.  Half a cup of kitten..

  5. Your tortie w/white sounds just like Tutu! She's very tiny (but she was abandoned at birth so that's understandable) and is now almost 7 weeks old and very playful and active AND absolutely lovable.
