The Fools are five weeks old today! And, as practically-grown kitties, they’ve decided that they are OVER my desire to take their pictures, and they refused to let me dangle them from one hand while trying to take their picture with the other. UGH, BRATS.
So, I’m just going to post a picture of each of them this week and maybe for next week I can get Fred to lend me a hand for some progress pictures of the wiggly little monkeys.
I weighed them all yesterday, and was not really surprised to find that Rickles is still the biggest, though I wasn’t expecting him to blow by 1 1/2 pounds quite so soon. He’s at 1 pound, 9 ounces. Louis passed the “tiniest” torch to Roseanne (he only outweighs her by .3 ounce, though). Shecky, Belushi and Skelton are all around 1 pound, 6 ounces, and Gilda’s at 1 pound, 5 ounces.
I was pleased to see that Lucy has put on a few ounces over the past week, which I am sure is due in part to the fact that her kittens are eating on their own more and more.
You can see their weight chart at the bottom of their page, here.
At first, I wondered how Rickles was keeping his voluptuous figure when I never saw him belly up to the snack plate, but then I realized that he waits for everyone else to finish eating, and he climbs onto the plate and eats the leftovers. ALL of them.
Clockwise from Lucy, we have: Lucy, Skelton, Louis, Shecky, Gilda and Belushi. Rickles was waiting ’til everyone else was done, and Roseanne is really not all that interested in the canned food, though she’s tried it a few times.
Videos! In the first one, Gilda’s got her crazy on.
And in the second, there’s a whole lotta hippity hop going on.
