Catching up with the kittens



Everything is going smoothly with the kittens. A nice simple foster situation with no complications just buying our time while they grow.. can't complain about that. Everyone should sign up for these.


This set of kittens, like the last, have no real interest in us while Michaela is around. We had company over the weekend and they were very interested in showing off for other people, so that is good. Since Michaela is over nursing (whenever they ask she gets up and leaves) I'm thinking that sending her on will help finish up the socialization process. 


Doughboy and Marsh (aka Marshmallow) are still the largest and the smallest by half a pound. It really is quite amazing. Graham is just a few ounces shy of Doughboy.. who was very well named.


S'more still has that flat gremlin-like head. In case you were wondering, yes, she has tortitude.


George is very interesting. She remains sitting when I walk in the room still. She won't come running to me, nor does she run away when I walk up to her to give her attention (but she will walk away if I give her too much) which led me to initially suspect she wasn't feeling well but once she is up and going she is a total spitfire. I'm coming to the conclusion she is just a little timid and unsure in new situations. I gave them a new toy last week and she circled it five times inspecting it to make sure it wasn't going to 'get' her.  She's not shy, she's not obviously scared.. she doesn't lash out, growl, or show any signs of being or having been feral, she is just, timid with change. I need to get the TV into the kitten room so that there is regular noise of people, which I have a feeling will help her a lot.

Lots of eating (up to 30oz a day) and lots of pooping, and gobs of adorableness..

  3. Everyone is so cute! But we think they won't be happy that Michaela isn't around anymore... though of course that is part of the growing up process.

  7. I'm glad Michaela is no longer interested in nursing--since she's been doing it for quite a while now. The kittens are so cute.

  9. They are beautiful kittens and I have had a special place in my heart for Michaela since your first shot of her peeping out with those big gold eyes and that very interesting curious expression she shows so often.

  11. Michaela sure knows how to grow them! And when she gets spayed ... it will break the mold (for the best) :)
