Do you know, it isn’t ’til I was looking at this picture that it clicked for me that I’ve got four boy kittens and four girls. It seems like we’ve got about 100 more boy kittens than girls some days. Here we have all the girl kittens in the house, in one bed. You can’t tell from this angle, but Thistle is actually completely laying on top of Polly. She’s so light that I don’t think Polly even notices.
I weighed everyone the other day. Magoo is now over 3 pounds – he’s 3 pounds, 3 ounces – but still weighs 6 1/2 ounces less than the next-smallest Pickle, Petey. Joe Pickle is the biggest at 3 pounds, 13 ounces. Polly and Percy are both at 3 pounds, 10 ounces.
The Weeds are coming along, and have more of a difference between them. Thistle is the tiniest at 2 pounds, 1 1/2 ounces – she’s gaining very slowly, but she shows a gain every week – Purslane’s solidly in the middle at 2 pounds, 6 ounces. And Dandelion’s the biggest (as she has been from the beginning) at 2 pounds, 10 ounces.
Sometimes I pick up Joe Pickle and then pick up Thistle, and it seems like she weighs nothing at all.
