Trying to take pictures of active kittens


So I know it has been a while since I've gotten some good kitten pictures, so I attempted to get some last night.  Even had my husband try to help.  He took a bunch, but sadly he doesn't understand how the focus works on my camera so most of them were out of focus.  Even if I added those in, we didn't get to take good photos of everyone because they were so full of go

Smedley practices working his magic
Issac Arnold is on the left
Brothers.. can you tell who is who?
Mishka is just not happy at the flash, she is such a lovebug
Issac Arnold is on the right
Brothers again.. again, can you tell?
Koshka was trying to get DH to play with her
Verona - that darn flash again..

Issac Arnold again.. 
Geeze, would you two take photos of someone other than me or my brother??
Silly humans.. it's me again!!  ~Smedley

Mishka climbed up on the couch and up on to my lap tonight, and I spent some time patting her and loving on her.  I also had most of my toes licked by a number of the kittens.  They are starting to figure out people are really kind of cool.

Koshka is the only one who has made weight, being 2lbs 2 oz.  Cubby and Verona are right behind at 1lb 15.  I am thinking I'm going to send Snow back either this weekend or early next week to give her a change to get away from the kits and put on some weight and get a home a little sooner.  She is such a love that whomever gets her is going to be very happy with her.  I'll probably split this litter and send the three larger kittens back before the three smaller ones since Smedley and Mishka  are a pound and a half and Issac Arnold is 1lb 6oz and will be with me for a while.

These kittens are also eating me out of house and home.  They are eating 8 regular sized cans of cat food a day as well as quite a bit of dry food... which of course then means there is quite a bit out output.  They are energetic (read mayhem in fur coats) and at... eight weeks of age .. woh, they are only 8 weeks?? it seems so much longer than that. Well we will play it by ear.  It is a fine line between keeping them together to help them learn from one another and be better well mannered cats and getting them into the shelter and getting them neutered while they are small and will recover well and then find a home while they are small and cute. (and moving the mayhem out of my house.. seriously, think about this.. SIX kittens.. ) (and eight cans of food..)

  14. They all, mom and kits look so healthy and happy. Quite the difference from 8 weeks ago! You've done a wonderful job and whoever is fortunate enough to have one (or more) of them in their home will be very lucky!

    8 cans of food, wow! Those are hungry little kittens.
