My kitten opened his EYES! Yay!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
He surprised me this morning when he woke up and cried a little for his milk. And tada! Staring right back at me was his two little eyes! I almost screamed because I was so happy! Now, when he stare at me with his little eyes, my heart just melt. He's 13 days old now and from my observation, he's quite healthy. My BF managed to combed out three flees from his fur though, and we will try again later so that we don't miss any.

My lovely kitty has grown up so much since the first day I saw him at 4 days old. Still have a long way to go but each day brings more challenges and happiness at the same time.

I will be sure to post more pics ... but it's tough to get him to stay still .. most of my pics are so blurry since he tends to move around all the time. The pics above were actually taken moments before he fell asleep .. haha .. he was still standing on his four legs and after a while, he fell on his side and snooze off! Incredible!

Awww Isn't it just so wonderful when they open their eyes and look at you for the first time?

Be sure to take as many photos as you can, cause they don't stay that size for long!

Good luck with the little guy!

Hmm..is it perfectly okay for a 2 week old to start exploring and crawling a lot? Benjamin seems to be very curious of his surroundings and have exhibit play-like behavior. I thought he's still too young and should be sleeping most of the time.

No thats normal but make sure he is confined to a small area where he will be safe and not get into anything.

We didn't get Blossom until 3 weeks old when my son found her. She was very quiet for the 1st few days, very wobbly on her legs & didn't play. I was able to keep her in a box for 4-5 days b4 she started exploring.

Benjamin is still wobbly but that didn't hinder him much! When he bottle feeds, he usually perked up on this hind legs and eat almost standing up! His two front paws will be on my palm, pawing away in a cute rythm, up and down, up and down. I think this soothes him.

I placed him in a small faux fur shoulder bag today. I turned the bag inside out so the fur is in the inside. He stayed there quietly for a while before peeking his head out. He's so funny. He just goes in and out of the bag and at the beginning, he just placed his two front paws out of the bag. He tend looks up and down, left and right and went back into the bag. He did this a couple of times and then, boom! He leaped out! I know I am looking at a really active little kitten and he is starting early.

Came back from the Vet and ah well, Benjamin is actually a GIRL. LOL!
So, she is now Lucy Belle.

All is well with her and the doc gave her a clean bill of health for now. She still have to be tested for Feline AIDS/LEUKEMIA first and if it's negative, get Strongid Wormer treatment and a Feline 3-1 Booster. Her next visit is a week after Thanksgiving. Doc said that she is still much to small to receive any kind of vaccinations and treatment.

The doc used a rectal thermometer to take her temp and poop! She made a mess on the table. And when doc and the nurse tried to clean her up, she screamed on top of her little lungs. Doc said she surely is a feisty little girl!

I am so happy that I did everything correctly, except keeping her warmer. So, he suggested that I purchased a heating lamp to heat up her nest box. I got an Infra Red Heat Bulp and the whole area now resembles a red light district!

Will keep everyone updated on Lucy Belle's development.
