Kitten update

Kittens, Princess Batman

In case you’ve been curious about how the kitties are doing, here you go.

If I have my information correct, we have three boys (both of the orange tabbies and the all-gray tabby) and the two white-pawed tabbies are girls. Or maybe they’re not – what do I know?

Their eyes are open now and just yesterday they started to stand up on all wobbly fours and take little shaky steps, as opposed to the spastic belly-dragging they are accustomed to.

Here are some ‘recently born’ shots compared to ‘now’ shots:

Two days old?

Two weeks old.

no eyes open

I see you seeing me.

Princess Batman is doing alright, except for the bout of horrible diarrhea she had today that involved me (The Alpha Cat) giving Mama Hissngrowl a bath, then washing the floors. (jibblie)

I’ve been sleeping in the downstairs guest room since Lloyd is sick, and last night Brad called into my room, “Did you bring a kitten upstairs?” I hadn’t. Princess Batman was apparently freaking out and wanted to move them or something. I got a big rubbermaid tub to put the kittens in, then slept on the couch while PB made all kinds of weird, nervous noises with her babies. All. night. long.

What am I going to do when they start needing a litter box? Do I keep one on each floor or just count on them to use the basement one?

Half-dozen cats goin' cheap.

I don’t know what I’m doing.

    EXCELLENT photography!! Especially the banner pic & the “I see you seeing me” one. Send that one in somewhere….it’s worth a million!

    I’ve missed the cat-cam.

    Feel better Lloyd.

    Aw-w-w! What a sweet face!

    It’s interesting to watch Princess Batman do the mommy thing. Lately, she’s been making a lot of Marge Simpson noises.
