Surprise!

IMG_20160629_202230Aquaman likes to play ‘surprise’ and get belly rubs.  I realized today that he is a pretty rare cat in that he is male but has white, black, and orange markings.  The orange bits are stripey, not spotty, and mostly on his ears and back legs.  He may have an extra X chromosome.  Just also realized chromosome has chrome–color–in it.

Flash is now over two pounds big.  Aquaman is 1.5, but they’re all gaining nicely.  They had a checkup, shots, and worming today and are fine.

Green Arrow is hardly ever shy now.  When happy, she holds her tail nearly flat along her back.  I call her “skinky tail” because it’s skunk-like, but not stinky.

2 Feathers, 2 Pipe Cleaners, 1 Straw

IMG_20160625_085141… and 3 kittens.  It makes a good door toy too because it wiggles well on both sides and takes a little while to pull through.

The Gang

IMG_20160621_104134They’re all doing well.  Green Arrow is still shy, but climbs into my lap when she’s ready.  Visitors get the kittens’ attention better if I’m out of the room, so they do enjoy other people too.

Facetime

IMG_20160618_121625Flash got very “in my face” this morning, going so far as to nibble my eyelid.  I think she was trying to let me know I should be licking her.  Cuddling sufficed, and eventually Green Arrow joined us.  Aquaman napped all morning in one of the many slings I set up.  I’ve removed the under-table caging and let them have the whole room full time.  Even Arrow who gets nervous when I enter the room doesn’t hide.  (A problem with truly feral cats is that they hide, and get more scared the longer you muck about hunting for them.)  The under table area is still the safe place they head for if they’re scared.

Look, Ma! Less Claw!

IMG_20160617_120502I trimmed their front claws today.  I don’t imagine that ever happened to them before, but they submitted gracefully.  They don’t understand why it’s harder to climb my arms and back, but it’s nicer for me.

Posed

IMG_20160616_211148I was out much of the day, but Emily came and cuddled kittens.  They convinced her to hand-feed them too.  I bought some chicken legs and cooked up some soup tonight and no fingers were required.  The kittens were very excited.

All Friendly

IMG_20160615_200741Shy Green Arrow has relaxed.  She’s so much happier not being scared.  All three love being brushed and even offer up their bellies for brushing.  Aqua Man is the only one who mews, and that’s rare, but they are not feral: yay!

Adjusting

IMG_20160615_134637Finally, this afternoon, Green Arrow ate a decent amount, from my fngers.  He’s still very shy;  you can see he is ready to dart away if I try to get closer.   The other two were sitting on my shoulders last night.  I’ve had to tell Aqua Man that my feet, knees, etc. are not for sharpening claws.

I decided to let them out in the room, because they’d have to be better at jumping to get to good hiding places.  They have found the mirror and all 3 are having fun running about.
