Growing Up

18 Sep

ready, set, ...cuddlepuddleComrade Green Yarn is no longer the loudmouth; I guess he’s happier. One eye has a little bit of yellow discharge, so he gets a warm compress to the face. That eye is opening a little bit. I found if I hold the kitten belly-side up, less runs down to the nose. Comrade Magenta still gets a warm compress, but the belly button looks fine now.

They’re beginning to grapple with each other more in a slow motion sort of play. Their ears are not open, but they can hear some, and feel footsteps coming into the room, and probably smell different people in the room. They certainly know what to do with a bottle; they are good little eaters. And they put up with being stroked to pee, although they are very annoyed by bowel movements.

They’ve gone from 3.45 to 4.45 ounces on Wednesday morning to 5.45 to 6.9 ounces Sunday morning. I’ll still be doing a wee hour feeding for a while.  I didn’t find any fleas today, nor evidence of them, and the kittens’ fur is very silky soft.

    Oh wow…I am so jealous. You are front row central watching these little guys develop at break neck speed into solid cat citizens. Errrhhh…I think you are not a passive watcher, of course. Lots behind the scenes needed to make this happen….how much flea comb action needed to turn out that soft fur, e.g. &:)

    I’m eagerly scanning the blog to read more…..thanks for posting.
