Hooray, hooray!! Way to go AL. You've probably had kittens before, but I was kind of surprised how shaky the kittens are trying to walk, just to be prepared...

Three times today, I've gone in my room to check on Al and to feed him, and he's already eating ALL ON HIS OWN!

Oh they're growing so fast! Willow's acorns are 2 weeks already and beginning to walk themselves. It's so fun watching their 'milestones'

We are renaming Al! Why, you may ask? Well... Al isn't exactly a girls name! Yeah! He is a SHE! For now, we are calling her Elle. We are going to think of some girl names now. Wow! I can't believe he's a she!

Well well well, Elle and Mirah, cute little sisters none-the-less.

Guess that was the lucky thing with our kits. Red boys, Cali girls. They came color coded!

I bet they're getting nice and active huh Cassie? Ours will be 3 weeks tomorrow and they are all over the place if we let them, they scratch at the sides of their box in the middle of the night and they even purr now!

They turned 3 weeks Saturday. Mirah is very active, and Elle is getting there. She's taking her time. Though it was a little early, I introduced them to canned food, and Mirah thought about, and said no, but Elle didn't want anything to do with it. She was about two weeks premature when she was born, if not more, and then last week she had another stroke, and is really starting to recover from it again. Just keep praying for her.

Thanks!
Cassie

What about Al-lie? (Allie?)

Mine will be 4 weeks tomorrow. How can that be? Wow! At least 3 are eating momma's food, and they all run up to me when I walk into the room. How cute is that? They all have their little personalities!

Well, we decided to stick with Elle. I didn't like it at first, but, it's grown on me.

Oh, I know just what you mean! I don't really like the name I gave our little runt, Dumpling, but it just sort of sticks.

Just got back from the vet. Elle still holds her head sideways, but can walk, and nurse on her own. The vet doesn't know what it is, and said to just keep doing what we're doing. Since she really doesn't know what's going on, I want to get a second opinion.
She does, however, know that since her eyes are so deep and bright blue, they will NOT change. She is most likely deaf, because of this, and my suspicions, and the chances are she is... but that's okay. I still love her to death!

Maybe she holds her head funny if she is deaf?

Interestingly, one of my white kittens shows signs of being odd-eyed. His left eye is staying blue and the right is sort of "graying" out to a greenish color.

I'll look green... then it'll turn orange. Odd enough... white kitties either have orange eyes or blue eyes, or a combination of both. If they are blue eyed, chances are they're deaf. If they are orange eyed, they'll be normal. If they are odd eyed, chances are that the side their blue eye is on, they will be deaf on that side too. However, whether blue eyed or odd eyed, if they have a dark mark on their head when they are kittens, they will not be afflicted by the deafness. CJ had a dark mark, so she was not afflicted.

Oh, how cool! All 3 of my white kitties have a dark mark on their head. Oh, duh, you can tell that from my signature!

When I met my husband, he had a long-haired white odd-eyed cat. So I've been saying that if one of the white ones has odd eyes we might have to keep it. But I think 4 cats might be too much.

Elle is doing good. Just got back from the vet a few minutes ago. She has a Vestibular Disease. Since she was born with it, the vet said that the prognosis her getting over it is low. But, since there is a chance that it's an infection, which is what it is a lot, he gave her some anti-biotic and vitamins to see if she gets over it. He said it's like she's on a constant boat in the rough seas moving back and forth, because vestibular disease effects the balance. He said he normally gives a sedative, which is a mixture of Vallum and another sedative, but since she's so small, there isn't a small enough dose. He said that the way it looks to her, like when she eats or drinks, it looks like her dish is going back and forth, and that's what the sedative is for. But he's going to see how she does without it first.

Thanks for your concern!

Cassie

Oh, poor little thing. I hope she feels better. If I was feeling like that I'd be throwing up all the time!

Well, so far, she's only had two doses of antibiotics and vitamins, and this morning we already saw a slight difference! Hopefully, it is an infecting that these antibiotics will clear up! Keep on praying that it is!

Thanks!
