I weighed the babies as soon as I got home (see previous post for where I've been). Everyone is doing fine! Dark Tortie girl, 7.1 oz; Light Tortie girl, 5.8 oz; Big "Package" boy, 7.8 oz; Little "Package" boy, 6.8 oz. I'm totally amazed by these weights. Even though the little Light Tortie girl is lagging significantly behind her sibs, everyone is way above the weights of the Maples for the same day of life (4.5-5.1 oz), so I'm content they're on the right path. I'll feel better when we're weighing daily, though.
Here's a shot of the box under the bed. I raise the flap and drop the blue sheet to give them privacy. I can snag the babies without moving the box with this set up.
Momma always moves away from me, but doesn't leave the box, which is good. Grandma Jeanne calls her LBC (Little Black Cat). We'll have to work on the names this week!
And I don't think I've mentioned our Annie was in the back basement when the new kids arrive and will not leave. She's always been skittish but clearly doesn't want me to pick her up right now. She loves lovin' up but skitters away when I reach to scoop her up. So, she can guard the back basement and I'll just have another stop on the loving up train for a while! LOL!
Whew... things have not slowed down. Tomorrow I have a surprise for you! (Don'tcha love cliffhangers????)
