Renaming day for the Fluffernuggets


 



This post is a bit overdue.  Mostly because I couldn't wrap my brain around the name my husband picked for Miss Mouse and I only recently started calling her by her new name without having to think about it. 

It is a little bit sad as I like the idea of a cat named mouse,  but I feel she needed a stronger name to try to help her overcome her fears.  She's a rather timid kitty and we rarely see her during the day.  She does like to come out at night and is quite demanding about being pet and getting attention.  It's nice for me because I'm really uncomfortable letting more than a day go by without us putting hands on a kitty in our home. 

Anyway,  the Catman decided that Miss Mouse was going to be Xena - the worrier princess 


As for Mr Darcy.. I tried name after name for him and nothing stuck until one day I came in the house and for some reason called our "Toby!!" And he came running over,  ever so happy to see me.  His official name is Tobias,  but I call him Tobes, or Tobes McGoats, or Toby.. 


He brings me an inordinate amount of joy.  He loves throwing himself at my feet and he often makes walking across the room quite difficult.  He is trying very hard to fill the large holes left by Muffin and Jack

Naming day has been postponed


 I have settled on names for the kittens and went to take photos of them to post here, but I was cocky enough to think I would remember which kitten was which when I took the photos.. and I don't. So you get to look at cute photos of kittens today and I will get more photos and post for Friday..

The kittens are growing like weeds


 


Grimmkin is doing a wonderful job raising her kittens.  The kittens are quite rotund and I joke they remind me of fuzzy potatoes.  We had eyes open pretty quickly and they have even started walking practice all in their own. 

Mom isn't making it easy as she doesn't want any bedding in with her.  She's shunned all of it from the beginning.  That blanket there was bunched up long before the start of this post,  but I wanted it for the photo. 

If I'm not mistaken,  the first two are the boys and the second two are the girls.  I'm going to work on names for them this week and how to tell them apart..

Tailspring for kittens


 


Momma Grimmkin didn't like the breakfast I served this morning and was feeling a little dehydrated (not concerning,  just a bit) so I wanted a good source of calories for her. I also knew if I gave the kittens a little formula it would reduce the demand they put on her for a little while and let her catch up. 

Tailspring sent some samples a few months ago.  I actually used one can for Millie, my last mother kitty who had the same issue.  

Normally I prefer to use goat milk, but having this on hand is convenient. I noticed a slight issue and I could quickly fix it. 


Grimmkin approved 

The kittens are going great.  They are getting fat and are quite happy.  




Grimmkin doesn't seem to like the blankets I put down,  but I keep straightening it out.. I'm hoping I can get her into the basket soon.. but with all things,  it's her call
