a week already???

Thanks for all the pawsitive thoughts yesterday....we hope to have an update tomorrow.

Hard to believe it was a week ago yesterday that mom brought home Jade and her boy. Then in just over 24 hours we added 4 more kittens.

We had some good suggestions on Tuesday and after wandering the interwebs, we went with some geology/gem names. (thanks to Miss Andrea and Miss Patty)

Everyone is doing very well and gaining weight. While our tiny girl is still tiny, she is putting on steady being little lets her squirm under everyone.

So, without further ado, let's do some introductions and weights:

 Mica (Jade's original kitten)
weight: 4-11 was 6 3/8 ounces, 4-16 was 9 1/8 ounces

weights: 4-11 was3 1/2 ounces, 4-16 was 6 7/8 ounces

weight: 4-11 was 4 1/4 ounces, 4-16 was 6 5/8 ounces

weights: 4-11 was 4 1/2 ounces, 4-16 was 7 3/8 ounces

weights: 4-11 was 2 7/8 ounces, 4-16 was 5 3/8 ounces
(so last night she weighed as much as Mica did when he got here)

Mica's eyes are just starting to open. The others should be a few days behind him. He is certainly the bulldozer of the family - he put his head down the other night and was shoving Ash around their box.

Jade is SUCH a good momma. As mom was taking pictures, the kittens were making it apparent that they weren't very happy about it. Jade came over more than once and told mom to KNOCK IT OFF!!! Jade was very polite about it, but also very insistent that mom put those kittens back.


  1. Aww, such cuties! Yay for the gem names! :D They are adorable!
    Fingers crossed for Maestro's results

  2. Squee!!! These kitties are all SO cute :)

  9. They've grown! Weight aside, you can see the difference in the pictures. And Jade should be in line for a mother of the year award. (So should you, Jeanne.)
