Well, its going good and bad. Good because the babies have settled in nicely. I did get a few pics, but haven't developed them yet.
Bad, because since the kittens are in the cat cage, I cannot reach into it, or even really look at them too close. The previous owner, her daughter, and even the neighbor kids were handling the kittens at her house. I did check each out briefly last night before placing them in the cage, but now Momma CoCo hisses at me if I get near. She has bitten me twice, both warning bites, not breaking the skin. The second bite was when I was simply pulling back the huge towel covering the cage, so I could look at the litter!
So while I am glad she is such an attentive mother, I am truly itching to cuddle the babies a little! But usually, at two weeks, I didn't do much handling of the litters I had before. Maybe it is due to the new home, with smells of other cats. Maybe it is that she finally has a space she is able to defend.
But she is feeding them regularly, and they are all sleeping contentedly. They move into different positions, and I have seen them breathing. So all are well, just a little too well protected!
Their eyes are open, they are soft little fuzzballs, about as long as my hand is wide. All seem to be shorthaired. Soon enough they will be as crazy as Red and Blue who are jingling (bells on their collars) as they chase each other around the front room, as Aunt Festus finishes off their dinner. I pet them both as they ate, so that will have to be my kitten fix for today!
