Kits are becoming Kittens
For those of you not used to it, kittens grow like weeds. These two are growing up every single time I blink. What once were two puff balls are now starting to look like actual kittens now.
It helps that they are eating better now. It did take some convincing but they are eating canned food fairly well now. I have also started mixing in some dehydrated goat's milk that is full of probiotics hoping that it will help Lemonade's stool situation. She developed pure liquid diarrhea and nothing showed up in the fecal sample I brought into the shelter, so I put her on raw food for a couple of days. She was unamused and held out for the dry food; fortunately, the kittens ate the raw so it didn't go to waste. Lem's stool firmed up, but it still smelled very badly so I decided to try the probiotics. If all goes well with her, I will try sending her back midweekish. I really want to give the kittens some time here without her to see if they will turn to humans for comfort and attention. Sprite is comfortable with us, but still isn't attention seeking. Wryn would prefer it if I never tried to touch her ever again.
Yes, that is Sprite washing her face like a bunny does. Anyway, I have no doubt that Lem will be snatched right up. I wish I could get to know her true spirit without the mother part of her personality overwhelming her. I can see sparks of it when the kittens get tired and she gets a chance to play, and she is freaking adorable.
