Time for another kitten update (whether you like it or not).
The kittens, who are 3-1/2 weeks old, are now using the litter box (hooray!) However, they refuse to acknowledge the existance of any other food substance except kitten formula served in a bottle. They are active and playful, and have started to climb up the baby gate that is supposed to keep them contained in the bathroom. (Tibby and Zigra enjoy trying to swat the kittens through the openings in the gate; I guess it’s their version of “Whack-a-Mole.”)
They are very eager for human contact, and climb up my legs (which is slightly painful when I am barelegged) whenever I enter the bathroom.
So, get your kitten points in order, because the prizes will be awarded in just three weeks or so!
Now, some photos (you’ll have to excuse the quality; my cheap digital photo just isn’t up to the task of wildlife photography — but trust me, these kittens are WAY adorable).
First, here is the Siamese-esque kitten, snuggling alongside the girls, Celine and Lupita. He is the largest of the litter, and really nice. I am open to naming suggestions. In fact, I would welcome them. I considered “TV’s Frank,” because of the white hair, but I don’t know if it suits him.
And here is Bix Dugan (AKA “Wheezy”), who has regained all the weight he lost while he was sick, and has also regained his title as “The Cutest Kitten in the World.”
And here is a pile o’ kittens.
Anyway, my plans are coming along nicely. Once the kittens are weaned (and stage three is accompished), we will be ready for stage four: RULING THE WORLD!
