Sleepy Kudzu.

Clover peering over the pie plate at me.

Bramble hisses…

And Bramble yawns. I guess that hissing wore him out.

Mondo looks so serious in his sleep.

Mimosa’s all “You watch ’em for a while, lady.”

She has a little snifferoo of the catnip toy…

A bath…

And then it’s back on milk bar duty.


An old shot of Dewey, so y’all don’t forget what a cutie he is.


Posted on social media (Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr) yesterday.

The Sprouts are 2 weeks old! This is what they look like currently, and here are their weights:⁠
Kudzu: 11.6 oz/328.8 g (birth weight: 4.5 oz/127.5 g)⁠
Mondo: 11.8 oz/334.5 g (4.7 oz/133.2 g)⁠
Clover: 12 oz/340.2 g (4.1 oz/116.2 g)⁠
Bramble: 11.8 oz/334.5 g (4.3 oz/121.9 g)⁠
Hollyhock: 9.8 oz/277.8 oz (3.7 oz/104.8 g)⁠

Everyone is healthy and doing great. I’ve seen some concern about Hollyhock being smaller than the others. She’s just a smaller kitten. I weigh the kittens daily, and she is gaining weight just fine (as are they all.) Also of note, Clover is now the biggest kitten (Mondo was the biggest kitten at birth.)

Kitten pie! Kittens in the pie plate at 1 day, 1 week and 2 weeks old. That pie plate is just about full!

Look at those bright eyes! The kittens are moving around more and more, exploring their space, tussling with each other. And being adorable (always.)

The milk bar: newborn kittens (top) vs. 2 week old kittens. Have they grown? Just a little! (Hollyhock is present in that top picture, she was just curled up asleep under Bramble.)

Mama Mimosa went to eat dinner, and it left Kudzu full of emotions and opinions, which he proceeded to share… and share… and share some more. It might be early yet to make this declaration, but it sure seems like we have a Da BAYbee in that one.

Your Daily Milk Bar. What can I say? It’s another milk bar video. Mama Mimosa’s thousand-yard stare at the beginning cracks me UP. She’s thinking about her life choices.

Good night innernets. (From front: Bramble, Clover, Hollyhock, Mondo (bottom) and Kudzu.)

  1. So adorable. You are so good to watch the kittens for Mimosa. One thing you cannot do is open the milk bar for them though. She is a good mama.

  2. Hollyhock and Kudzu look like someone whited out the M’s on their foreheads. So cute.

    You mean to tell me that people on the Internet are worrying over nothing? Why, I never. *goes to fan herself and smacks herself in the face with the pearls she’s clutching*
