One Eye

Not the best focus or view, but Big Rig (lower kitten) has one eye visible now.  What I like about the photo is it shows Tonka in action (upper kitten).  Screaming yellow (collar) bonka Tonka has a habit of swinging his head wildly back and forth.  It’s sort of like Busstop’s scan but hers is because she lacks foveal vision and uses the motion to build an image.  I am wondering if Tonka has some C.H. or other neural problem.  It probably won’t be a major problem, but more of a quirk.


…Now Diesel has one eye open.  She the one who wanders most, so I expect she’ll be very active soon.

Guest Kitten

IMG_20171001_154524Being a guest instead of a foster means Saturn can explore the hall and even meet the home cats.  Even before seeing Snuggles (birthday cat! 18 years old today), Saturn was fluffed, but I think this is maximum tail fluff.

Saturn After Cassini

Nasa’s adventures with Cassini have not affected  Saturn.  He’s doing better with the meds now and gaining weight again.

Round Cat

Round cat is very round.  She’s the most spherical, so much so that she cannot quite reach to clean her bottom.  To her credit, she does try, stretching one way, then the other and rotating.


Wild Play

Wherein Twiga demonstrates early learning of playing with things: how far is it and what happens when you hit it.  Sometimes, they look perplexed at how to walk when it’s on their path to somewhere.  “Going around” is a later skill.

Tween-March Kitten Therapy

img_20170120_215707Mack and friends really enjoyed kitten time last night.

Jack is catching up to the others in weight.  They’re done with the nasty panacur medicine.  Maybe they’ll have a smooth stretch for a while.
