finally we have kittens! The shelter thinks they are three weeks old, I age them a wee bit older, coming up on four.. they are a little hissy, a little independent, and a little hidey..
Boy, girl, boy in DH's arms
being so young, they haven't yet been tested for Felv. They will be tested at the end of the month. No names at this point.. heck I still don't even have a good indicator of their personalities.. The girl just wanted out of there.. the lynx point kitten was pretty sedate and the most hissy.. the seal point (with wee stripes in there too) is going to be the first to realize humans are awesome. He was also the first one to eat..

I am OUT OF HERE! - girl
at this point he has blue eyes.. will he keep them?
More blue eyes.. I hope he keeps them..
we like hiding
Eating wasn't their strong suit at this age.. they figured anything in front of them that smelled good was food, so they started chewing on the bowl - which often young motherless kittens do.. when I transferred it to a plate, it worked a bit better for them, although there was still some chewing of the plate..
Chewing on the bowl
nom nom nom!
