Jim & Judy are 2-1/2 weeks old now and they are primed to explore their world. Wobbly & pretty clueless, they got up on all 4's instead of dragging their bellies. I set up their crate inside a cat playpen so they can explore & stay safe. I also put a flannel blanket over their crate, which they can learn to climb on. So today was their first try at it, and they did great! Enjoy the video 💕
Video of Jim & Judy after eating & purring with happiness. I love this when they are content and mellow with tummies full. Enjoy...
So we are into a routine and they are happy little kittens. They are still mostly sleeping, but they are eager to eat and starting to crawl all over me, which I love! Their eyes are clear and focused, and they continue to sleep all night. All good in kitten land! So took a few photos during the morning feeding to share here. By the way, holding a bottle in 1 hand and a camera in the other gets pretty interesting sometimes!
Jim & Judy are thriving and eating well. Both have little pot-bellies now, which is good with little kittens like these. Judy was being photogenic, but Jim was not. Oh well, I went with it. Their eyes are open all the way now. Kittens are all born with the dark blue eyes, and we will have to wait until about 6-7 weeks old before they change to their permanent color.
I tried to get some cute photos today, but neither one of them was cooperating! I can't blame them, it is a big job just getting used to the new situation and drinking kitten formula from a small bottle. I always wonder if the formula tastes like their mothers milk.
Today was a good day for them. They drank lots and I could see their little tummies were full. They mostly slept on top of the heating pad, snuggled together. I kept them in the bedroom with me so I could hear them if they woke up during the night, but they were perfect and slept all night!
I caught this photo, finally, of little Judy. You can see how little she is compared to my hand! Already so cute!
Jim & Judy are only about a week old, and their eyes are partially open. Most kittens open their eyes between 6 and 10 days old. I already think they are adorable, of course!
Jim is the brown tabby, and Judy is the lighter grey tabby. By the way, the names are given by the shelter I foster for, and figuring out if they are a boy or girls is really tough at this young age. We will know soon enough!
