The kittens are 10 weeks old today! I haven’t weighed them yet, but when I do you can see their current weights over at Google Sheets. Last week the boys were all either just over or just under 3 pounds (1.36 kg), so I’m sure they’re all over 3 pounds by now. Hollyhock’s still tiny but mighty.
The kittens are scheduled for their spay/neuter surgeries on June 1st (so, 3 weeks from today.)
The big news is that we are ADOPTION PENDING on Hollyhock and Bramble, who are being adopted together. They’ll be joining a wonderful kitty we’ve been talking a lot about recently… Stompers!
We’ve also gotten an application from someone who lives in Nashville, Tennessee (that’s a couple of hours north of us) for Mimosa; I haven’t heard yet whether it’s been approved, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.
I know that a LOT of people were hoping that Mimosa might be adopted with one or more of her kittens, but let me assure you – Mimosa DOES NOT WANT THAT. The kittens are driving her nuts lately, poor thing. She’s got a few spaces where she can get away from them – and she takes advantage of those spaces – but she would very much like to be able to go about her life without being swarmed by kittens at every turn.
(I would like to point out here that Jake is nearly 13 years old and I CANNOT BELIEVE IT.)
Mimosa and the Sprouts have plenty of room to roam now that I’ve opened the foster room door (they basically have twice the space they had), but where are the kittens? On the tree in the foster room, napping. They came out briefly to check things out, and went right back into the foster room. (It’s been a few days since I made this video – they’re venturing out to explore a lot more now!)
