ARe your kittens eyes open yet?
Lucia does a really go job with all of them. She stays very close and makes sure all nurse. When a baby wanders too far she keeps an eye on them and moves them close. They all cuddle up together. The eyes are open except for one that looks like Popeye and two are still closed. The brown tabby twins have open eyes. They start crying all at once too! They want to feed all of the time. I have started putting bone meal in Lucia's food for extra calcium. It seems to have helped her energy.The vet told me to do it.
Thank you for all of the compliments. I think they are adorable too.
