The kittens are just over a month old now. Little McBethie is chowing down on Kitten Glop while MacSter is still nursing. I had a scare this morning, I put mom's food down (wet) and went to clean boxes and when I came back MacBethie was eating the wet along with mom! I scooped her up as she was showing signs of choking, and then she got sick all over me. She acted like she had something stuck in her throat (probably a chunk of cat food) and so I got the syringe and gave her little bits of warm water. She was still lurching her neck and I thought, oh no, we are not going to lose you, so I got out her old bottle and fed her slowly until she worked the chunk down....phew! That was to close for comfort so now Mom gets fed up on top of the counter. I watched her carefully tonight and she is fine. Not a good scare!
