Guess what?! We have sexed and named the kittens! Innernets, please consider this your official introduction to the Half Pints.

Little White Feets is a girl, and she is Laura.

Little Dab o’ Blue is a girl, and she is Mary.

Little Dab o’ Yellow is a boy, and he is Albert.

Little Dab o’ Green & Orange is a boy, and he is Almanzo.

Little Dab o’ Pink is a boy, and he is Willie.

I know there are some who are disappointed that there’s no Nellie, but Fred was pretty adamant that the two girls needed to be Mary and Laura, so I went with it.

I did weigh them yesterday, and they now weigh as follows (with their birth weight in parentheses).

Mary: 7.0 ounces (3.5)
Laura: 6.5 ounces (3.3)
Willie: 7.1 ounces (3.9)
Almanzo: 7.9 ounces (4.0)
Albert: 7.4 ounces (4.0)

I’ll get them added to the sidebar – and their weight chart added to their page – this weekend, now that I know who’s who.

Up against the milk bar, kids.

For comparison purposes, here are the kittens at the milk bar (and one BEHIND the milk bar) a week ago:

Willie on the right, and… I have no idea who those two other kittens are.

Laura, front and center.

So sweet.

Mary’s belly-up, and doesn’t she have some delightful spots?

That’s Willie on the bottom of the pile, all “Halllllp!” (I kid, he was sound asleep.)

Do you SEE the little smile on Laura’s face? She loves her mama.
