The kittens are getting so big!
Apparently mom makes the best bed eva.. ;)
I swear I can actually watch them grow it is a little odd. Four out of five now have their eyes open. The three tigers are having the hardest time with this stage in life. One girl's eyes are still not open, the other and the boy each have had both eyes open then their right eye keeps sealing itself back up for some reason. I've tried purelube in it on the off chance they just weren't making enough tears, but last night there was the smallest amount of thicker discharge, so I used a bit of coconut oil which is antibacterial and antiviral (and pretty soothing to the eye, I know I use it in mine) and if that doesn't work I'll contact the shelter and see what they want to do about it.
I'm getting much closer to naming day, I'm thinking tomorrow if things don't change. I took their photos last night and they came out really great..I can't wait :)
(Eli did well enough at the vet. He did lose one tooth, and had a lot of tartar. Sadly he also has lost a pound since going to the vet last December, which freaks me out to no end. I will be keeping a close eye on his weight over the next couple of weeks and we'll go from there)
