I haven’t named the kittens yet – haven’t even really thought about it, to be honest – but Fred took a look under the tails yesterday, and (drumroll please) we have (in birth order)…
I’ll sit down and decide on names probably by the end of the week or over the weekend. Definitely by Monday!
I weighed the kittens yesterday, and they were all right around 5 ounces. So, they’re a little bigger than the average newborn kitten. Which is to be expected, I think – after all, they had plenty of room to grow in there!
Nola was so annoyed that I weighed her kittens and made them cry that she herded them to the back of the crate and gave me baleful looks.
Then she forgave me and moved around a little so I could see them.
I spent a lot of time in the foster room yesterday (I mean, DUH) and by the end of the day Nola was pretty much “Yeah, pick ’em up, do whatever you want, I DON’T CARE.” She also spent some time out of the crate hanging out, and flopped down against me for petting. It’s nice to see her relaxing into her role as mama – especially since she’s not going to have to do it again!
I inadvertently rustled a pile of papers, and Jake came running over to see if I had a treat for him. (I did not. It’s Jake’s opinion that I need to start storing bags of treats in my desk drawer, a suggestion I will consider.)
2016: Clearly, they’ve reached the portion of their life when they don’t want to be held and don’t wanna look at the camera, they just want to make getting a decent picture of their faces hard for me.
