November 13 update: This sweet litter of kittens are seven weeks old now. Besides being beautiful, we love how their personalities have developed. They are very playful and love to run around crazily. Mama's tail is a toy, and she is very patient when one of them tackles her. They are busy babies trying out all sorts of toys. They are eating canned food well and using their litter boxes. However, they tend to keep me up past my bedtime because they are so snuggly and friendly and so much fun to play with. Today they had their first vet exams, deworming, and first vaccinations. Everything went well. So once we got home, I was able to get these new pictures before they had to nap or run around. Whew!
October 27, 2014 update: It has been a very busy two weeks. Our lovely kittens have learned to scamper and eat a mixture of kitten formula and wet kitten food. So that means learning to use a litter box. So far, so good; smarty babies. They are as fluffy as ever and we can now see their eye color clearly. We have fun kidnapping them from Mimi one or two at a time and snuggling them. They even got to smell the great outdoors one night when we tucked them in our jackets out on our deck. Next week we will begin letting them explore the house under Mimi's supervision. I can't wait to get video of them playing.
October 20, 2014. These babies are so fat and healthy. Mimi is doing an awesome Mama job. This week they are playing and exploring more. They are getting more adventurous and wanting to leave the nesting pen. I still can't get over how fluffy and fat they are. My kids started calling them fluffy potatoes, but I think they look like fluffy sheep. And because Mimi is so relaxed, the babies are letting us hold them without hardly any protesting at all. These babies are going to be incredible kittens for their new families.
Updated October 7, 2014 The babies are growing so fast. They are cuddly and fat...completely adorable. They started opening their eyes after turning one week old. And this week they are getting used to supporting their weight with their wobbly legs.
