Parker, Jamie, Avery, and Teddi are seven weeks old!
Here are some highlights from our week:
On Saturday, Mama Chloe left us to go back to the rescue. This was kind of bittersweet. She was an awesome mama, but clearly miserable being cooped up inside. While I had secretly hoped to win her over so she could eventually be a cuddly, indoor, adoptable lap cat, she wasn't having it. I know in my heart, she'll be much happier being a barn cat. Happy trails, Chloe! I hope you are having fun chasing birds and squirrels.
With mama gone, my number one priority has been making sure these little fluff balls are getting enough to eat. Like any typical toddler, they can be a little picky, so we're learning together which foods they like better than others. Lucky for them, I'm an expert in "picky toddler" and they're all doing a great job in the weight department.
Speaking of weight, I've switched over from weighing them in grams to pounds/ounces, and they are all at or close to 1 1/2 pounds - even little Avery who was 1 pound 5 ounces this morning.
They've really upped their playing game, too. That's my nice way of saying they've gone crazy! I'm constantly re-arranging and moving things in the "kitten room" as they figure out how to jump and climb higher and higher. It's hard to believe only few weeks ago they could barely balance on wobbly legs.
Of course their crazy doesn't matter because as you can see, their cuteness totally overrides everything.
Also this week, my two big guys got their first peek at the kittens as I was coming out of their room. They seemed completely unimpressed.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
