Look how comfortable and content that pretty girl is. Really, when all is said and done, she settled in pretty quickly, didn’t she?
(Thank you so much, Debra!)
They are now TWO weeks old, and Kristi’s kittens have been sexed and named. Without further ado, please say hello to…
The little might-be-black, might-be-smoke, might-be-silver, might-be-tuxie, is-that-a-fever-coat?I-don’t-know kitten. This kitten is also a girl, and her name is now Debi, named after Debi Thomas (and because these kittens were born on my sister Debbie’s birthday, so the kitten is also kinda named after her.)
The darker of the two meezers. Guess what? Another girl! She is now Picabo, named after Picabo Street, who YES I KNOW is not a skater, she’s a skier. But the name is too perfect for a kitten, so I went with a non-skater for this one.
The lighter of the two meezers. That’s right – another girl! She is now Ohno, named after Apolo Ohno, who is NOT a figure skater but IS a speed skater, who is NOT a female, but who cares? How could I miss the chance to name a kitten Ohno?
So now that they’re named, I have no excuse not to get a page up and running for them, and get them all added to the sidebar. Hopefully THIS week is when that will happen, but perhaps you should not hold your breath.
At weigh-in yesterday, I found that Dean (who is the biggest of the big kittens) is now weighing in at 1 pound, 10.3 ounces. Katarina is the smallest of the big kittens, and weighs 1 lb, 1.8 ounces. The big kittens turned 5 weeks old yesterday. They’re starting to use the small litter boxes, they’re moving around all over the room, and are starting to bat at toys, climb on the ess scratcher, and are thinking about climbing the scratching post. (I would have put the small blue cat tree in the room by now, but we tossed the one we had when we moved, because it was such a mess. We have one on the way from Chewy and it should be here soon.)
The biggest of the little kittens is Brian Boitano, who weighs 10.2 ounces. And the smallest is Picabo, who weighs 8 ounces even. The little kittens turned 2 weeks old today – their eyes are all open, they’re looking around in interest, and they’re starting to pick fights with the big kittens.
