Little Miss No-Name has turned into Odilia..
She is a little spit fire this one. She reminds me so much of SuperElla that it isn't even funny - personality so large it takes over the whole room..
or the whole recycle bin even when she is sleeping..
She shows little fear. Everyone is so surprised she gets around so well and shows no fear.. well she has known no other way in life has she?
|I "see" you sitting there not patting me.. PAT ME!|
She eats fairly well.. about 30ccs of formula at a time.. She's got most of her teeth, so I offered her some friskies turkey and giblets canned food which she ate rather well.. watching her eat is pretty interesting, because I held it for her and she just opened her mouth, lunged forward and when she felt the food in her mouth clamped down and then swallowed.. which made her look a bit like a snapping turtle, and put my fingers at serious risk. She didn't like the second can of food I opened specifically for her - but it wasn't friskies.. and she didn't like the Fancy Feast Turkey and Giblets either.. but when I opened up another can of Friskies turkey and giblets, she ate like a champ! I left some on a plate for her in her new "spacious condo" and hopefully she'll eat it tonight..
no, she hasn't used the box yet.. but it is there if she feels the need. Surprisingly she does not seem to like the box in the least. She doesn't want to play with the litter, nor eat it.. (nor pee in it but she's young and youngsters do the first two things before they do the latter)
I did finally get her to poop though.. she was horribly gassy and the stool was pretty liquid.. she ended up needing a rinse down - which she took surprisingly well.
It looks like I am going to bring the other kittens back sooner rather than later. I love them, they are AWESOME kittens that are amazingly photogenic. I mean seriously, they love having their pict taken.. they see the camera and sit down and look at me!! Odilia will then move into the kitten room, but I think I'll set her up in the cage for a while and let her run around when I am there to watch her. In a couple of weeks when she has better control over her sensory input I'll feel better about her finding things in a larger area.. It is interesting to watch her at this stage.. when you make a noise she knows she wants to get to where that noise is coming from, and it takes her a few seconds to locate where the noise is coming from before she starts heading in that area. If you stop making the noise she gets 'lost' and slows down and might even stop because she wasn't really sure she was headed in the right direction.. she will eventually start to get better at that.. but this is all new to me (as it is to her obviously) so we'll just take things one day at time and see what happens..
(how on earth did I get ANY work done at work these past two days?)
