Happy 2 Week Birthday, Babies!

First, a purrayer alert: Everyone please keep Jordan and her kittens, over at "Tails from the Foster Kittens" in your thoughts. And Connie, too, as she works to help this fragile little family. Our hugs go out to them.
***********

I can hardly believe it! The kittens are two weeks old today! They are starting to be curious about their surroundings and, shaky as they may be, are actually walking with steps, instead of scuttling around. From this clip we can tell the box under the bed isn't going to hold them for much longer! Why does it always seem to be the littlest one who is so anxious to get out?

I'm kind of anal, so I've been charting their growth. I've added a tab so you can see it charted against both a "Normal Growth" chart and the Maples Family's average weights at the same age.

And, is it my imagination or is the dark portion of the Tortie Girl's coats getting lighter and lighter?



NAME THOSE BABIES!

Big Girl here! I'm doing a shameless plug for the March for the Animals our lady Two Legs is doing on Sunday, April 17th, to raise green papers for the MD SPCA. I'm going to round up my siblings and we are going to help! If you can help, in ANY amount, you get a chance to name my sister and brothers and me!!!! Click here, to find out more!


Big Boy: OK! I'm in! I think we should go this away...

No! Wait! I meant that away...

Little Girl: OK, everybody together now? Forward ho!


Thank you to everyone who has pitched in to help this fundraiser!

Tomorrow - we know how to groom!

  7. Oh those tiny little squeaks just kill me...I was watching the video with the volume up high, and as soon as the squeaks started, Gambino jumped up looking very annoyed, and Mishka ran away...boys!!! Reminded me of playing videos of the Maples when they were tiny kittens and how Poppy would just run around frantically trying to find those squeaking kittens...guess that's the difference between Mama kitties and boy kitties :)
