Thanks soo much everyone
/ Glad i'm not the only one swarming with kits! It's also high puppy season at our shelter too - so we have kittens and puppies everywhere
I will likely be starting to take in puppies soon too if this keeps up.We've also had lots of adult dogs come in lately- so i'm just hoping we can find homes for all of them. / The kittens are doing well this morning
I've spent all morning with them feeding/ cleaning and all those fun things. The dogs LOVE the baby kittens and keep trying to help also
They're sooo gentle with them- when i hold them and feed them, the dogs keep trying to bathe them. The kittens think they're their daddies
/ My two older kittens, Ivy and Iris will be going back to the shelter tomorrow with me- not to be placed up for adoption yet (too young) but to go in the kitten room as our house is getting pretty full. But the good thing is that i work up there so i can watch them around the clock
They're getting huge! Colin built a new stand/cover to case in the kitten cage so they can't fling litter everywhere and we also fixed up a new little tiny tiny covered litter pan to go in there out of a tupperware container- omg! for those of you with foster kittens that are small- it works soooooooooo well! I'll try to see if my phone/photobucket account is working later so i can take pictures for ya'll- it is really convient and cuts down on mess
/ The 4 little kittens seem to be doing well today- 2 of them weigh about 6-6.5 ounces and the other two weigh in around 8 oz at the moment- all are eating well
I'll try to get pictures as soon as i can. / Iris and Ivy- the two 7 week old girls (i think they're between 6.5-7 weeks) are brown tiger tabbies with a bit of marbling on their sides. / The 4 new babies- 3 are grey and sooo cute and fluffy and one is a brown tabbie- i believe it's two boys and two girls. I'll try to get pictures as soon as i can
I definitely could use some more sleep though
I woke up all night long to feed them. / Their little ears are open and so are their eyes - they're just now starting to cut in teeth- they're soooo cute!
I'll have to come up with names for them when i get some time. I'm still trying to tell the 3 little grey ones apart from one another.
