Today’s going to be a super-quick post, because we were gone all day yesterday and I have a ton of stuff to get done today. Just some baby kitten pics – my goal is to get in there and get pics of each individual baby’s face when Fred gets home this afternoon. They all look a LOT alike, and if anyone has a tip for simple ways to mark them so I can tell them apart, I’m all ears.
I’m trying not to spend a lot of time in the foster room right now, because Maggie will run over to be petted and loved on rather than tend to her babies, and even though I know they’re feeding just fine, they’re certainly not starving, and for the love of GOD, she doesn’t have to be in there with them 24/7, it still bugs me.
It seems to be a fallacy that newborn baby kittens sleep all the time, because what they actually do is lay in a big pile, everyone sleeps deeply for about a minute and a half, and then the guy on the bottom of the pile is all “Hey! Why am I on the BOTTOM of the pile? I belong on the top!” and starts squirming around, setting off a squirming chain-reaction, and they wiggle and squirm and wiggle some more for an hour, then fall into a deep sleep for another minute and a half.
It’s exhausting to be a wee bebbeh kitten, is what I’m saying.
Okay, here are some baby pics. I’ll have a bunch more tomorrow, I promise!
