Well-Adjusted Kittens

16 Apr

what am I doing?They’re not playing with toys yet, but they do sometime touch them repeatedly.  Their ears are growing to normal size; soon they will outpace the head size and look huge.  I’ve been giving them a little canned food, mixed with formula, off my finger.  It’s mostly gone the right way, and occasionally a kitten will lick a little more off my finger.  Once they’ve had a little food, they cannot suck a bottle for at least a half hour.  I’ve seen this with every litter I’ve weaned: they cannot suck if there is any trace of food in their mouths.  I leave the dish there in case they get inspired, but mostly they just step in the dish, if it’s in their path.  Going over is too big a step, and going around is just not in their mental toolkit.

I also have left a litter box in their way, just to annoy them.
