7 weeks old - flower kittens

weight: 1 pound 13 ounces

weight: 2 pounds 2 ounces

weight: 1 pound 8 ounces

weight: 1 pound 15 ounces

The kittens had a vet check today. Good news - the chest defect that mom felt on Muscari seems to be resolving as he gets bigger. The vet took an x-ray and his heart and lungs look normal. His chest still isn't "normal" but it shouldn't affect his lifespan or adaptability.

However, Trillium is still very congested. He's still eating and playing which is good news, but he has a continuing cough and his lungs are congested on x-ray. The vet we saw is going to talk to her partner and maybe have someone else look at the film. The main issue is there is a limit on what medication you can give kittens. But he is gaining weight and seems ok otherwise.

In a couple of weeks Muscari, Dandelion and Orchid should be ready for their spay/neuter surgeries. Then off to be adopted!


  1. Wow, Muscari continues to be HUGE!

  2. Mum loves to see how much the kittens are growing each day.

  3. Such cuties; hope each one gets or stays healthy, because I know they will get homes FAST!

  4. I fostered a kitten with a concave chest, I was worried, but he did just fine.

    Purrs for Trillium. I hope this resolves soon

  5. When we took Connor to his post-adoption vet visit, we discovered he has a concave chest. He seems to be doing fine and hopefully will not cause problems. These kittens have grown up so quickly!

  6. Wow, that was fast! I feel like I just got to know these guys and now three of them are almost ready for new homes. I'm sending purrs Trillium's way.

  7. We're glad they all are doing great. Purrs

  8. Yay for Muscari! I hope Trillium's congestion clears up.
