Darcy and her Darlings - Naming day


Just a reminder about the Michaela and her Minions Calendar.


Darcy is slightly better but still wants nothing to do with me. She wants time away from the kittens so she sits up on the shelf that is in the cage. She came out of the cage once, that I know of, to look out the window but I caught her out and she hated that.

When I feed her or change out the bedding she sits there with her ears up and looking at me like she expects I'm going to do something annoying but not like she expects I am going to hurt her. I guess I annoy her by existing. I can get her to come towards me a bit if I use food as an enticement and I don't push it too far. I can't get her to jump down from that shelf for food no matter how hungry she is. I can pat her while she is eating, but she really wishes I wouldn't.

I was dubbing around on the internet the other day and ran into two names that I picked for this litter. For some reason girl names aren't coming to me (I have a few other names for the other litter but not all of them yet) so I just googled around and landed on one that I like.. so let me introduce you to..

Zephyrine


Zephie has been having issues with her eyes producing more tears than she needs. I have been waiting and waiting for URI to break but so far she just has some black goop on her eyes and occasionally the lashes will stick together and "glue" her eyes closed. I wipe them and she looks normal. I check her conjunctiva and so far it looks very normal... I hope she outgrows this quickly.

She looks just like her brother except they are mirrors of each other, check out those front legs of her and.. 

Wyatt


Wyatt was not very cooperative when getting his photo taken, this was the best I got. He has a little eye drainage too, but not nearly the issue his sister has.. 

and introducing... 

Spottacus


Because seriously, with those feet, now could I not?!

You can tell he is just about ready to start being able to retract his claws.. poor thing can't right now and I am sure it is uncomfortable.

I have let them out of the cage a couple of times to walk around, but for the most part, Darcy keeps them isolated in the dark because that is where she is comfortable. They still don't have teeth yet, but I am sure that is coming soon.

I have gotten the all clear to attempt to introduce them. I gave it an initial go and Onyx hissed at the cage and when I tried to get her to come by again she refused. I'm going to keep trying because I think they can do each other some good and frankly Darcy's Darlings are going to be too big for that bathroom any day now.

  3. Ok, Spottacus is a pretty awesome name. We wish Darcy could meow with Michaela, who would be full of tales of how great you are and how she shouldn't be afraid.
