kitten update

Millie is giving the kittens a little more independence. Mom thinks she is getting more comfortable and is therefore is sleeping more near them rather than sleeping in the box with them. Mom found a bigger box for the kittens. It is more about keeping them contained for the short term.

Millie was rescued and brought to us right away so mom had to take her last week to be tested and vaccinated. Waiting for that test seems to be a really long 10 minutes, but Millie's test came back... negative for FeLV and FIV. YAY!!!

Mom weighed everyone on Saturday....and TRIED to get good pictures of their faces

male, orange tabby no white
weight: 8 7/8 ounces (current heavyweight)
 he had no interest in having his picture taken

male, orange and white tabby
weight: 6 7/8 ounces (current lightweight)
this was when Millie decided to supervise
Part way into the picture taking, Millie came over to get in the way supervise

female tuxedo, more black on her face
