I got 5 little new kittens today. They’re about 5 days old and weigh between 60 and 86 grams each. Danny calculated that it would take 11,363 to 15,151 of them to weigh a ton. Not an issue.
Some of them have a white spot under the chin, some a few white hairs on the legs, but in order to track their weight and other issues, I needed a way to identify each. So they all have cloth scarves. The orange-scarfed one had an infected bellybutton, but a warm soak cured it, it seems. Their names all start with K, but there was no way to link the name with the kitten, so for now they’re flame, orange, b&w, green, and brown.
They started getting a little livelier this evening when fed. The lighter ones have been pretty passive.
