Your Monday Morning Update on the Fluff Kittens



The girls are doing well, if not a bit perplexing. They are gaining weight, but they are still missing that rolly polly kitten feel.  Their bellies round out when they eat, but they still have such a long way to go in rebuilding (or building) muscle mass. I can still feel hip bones and ribs.. it is a little sad. They also go through periods of starvation when they will eat two cans of food, and other periods of "we are so not hungry" where they barely eat even any dry food (I might be exaggerating there a little, but it feels that way).  They are drinking a fair amount of water which isn't surprising since their stools aren't as firm as I would like. I am tempted to put them back on raw food but they spurned that the last two times I gave it to them, so I just make sure their water bowl is full.


We have also had a bit of a change in personalities. Lena was always the more outgoing one, and she still is one to stay out and in full view when something 'odd' happens where Lori still will run for cover, but Lori is now the one that will come up and sit on a lap and purr. Lena will sit just out of reach and look at me, so hopefully she will come around and start climbing up on me soon.

  3. They are so cute and fluffy! It is sad to feel bone and ribs when we touch kitties. I hope they will build good muscle mass. And I hope Lena will start coming around, too :-)

  13. As always, I am blown away by their cuteness. Glad to hear they are improving. I hope that whoever adopts them, adopts them together. They are such a great pair.

  14. What little beauties they are. It does seem as if they have minds of their own when it comes to eating. We know you'll make sure they are thriving. Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
