It looks like our boy Paulie Walnuts may end up with some gorgeous golden brown eyes (of course, at this point his eyes might go through three more color changes before their final color, so who knows?)
Adriana hanging from the little cat tree and trying to get her mouth on that hook in the wall (after I saw her do this, I moved the tree away from that part of the wall. I’m sure she’d be fine, but I’d rather not walk in and see her hanging there like a kittenfish.)
I weighed all the kittens yesterday and weighed Livia, too, while I was at it. I’ve noticed that she isn’t allowing the kittens to nurse much – she’ll occasionally let one or two latch on and nurse for about 30 seconds, and then she is OUT of there. I thought maybe she was letting them nurse when I wasn’t in the room, but given that she has gained 13 ounces in the past three weeks (I am not even kidding!), I suspect she’s not letting them nurse much at all. The kittens keep trying, of course, but more often than not she bunny kicks them away from her.
The kittens are gaining weight like crazy, Tony is already just under one and a half pounds. The girls are all around one pound, 12 ounces, and Silvio’s right behind Paulie Walnuts, just under two pounds. They are fantastic little eaters, and now will come running (some faster than others; Tony’s usually first at the plate) when it’s snack time.
Their weight chart is at the bottom of this page.
