The kittens are doing better
The girls are starting to put on weight and are starting to lose that boney feeling. If you look for it, you can easily still feel their bones, but you do kinda have to look a little harder now. I used to be able to feel each nodule on their ribs, now I can simply count the ribs, and I am sure in a few more days I won't even be able to that.
I have had them on raw since getting them back and their stools took another day to firm up but have been very firm since. I ran out of raw once and they got some canned to supplement and the stool got a bit softer, so I am going to keep them on raw for a couple of more days.
I normally feed Bravo after a very disappointing customer service encounter with Oma's Pride a number of years ago, but because of the most recent recalls I have been having a hard time getting enough Bravo, so I decided to buy some Oma's to make sure we had enough food while Bravo sorts things out. Unfortunately we immediately encountered the same issue this time that that started the ball drop last time - a piece of bone big enough to get caught on a tooth and that tooth belonged to one of the kittens. She was NOT happy to have me try to get it off, but I finally did.
I also was gifted a new piece of kitten room hardware. I mentioned that the scratching post I have in that room was getting a bit disgusting and one of my kind readers offered to donate a new one. It is absolutely lovely, thank you very much!
