The kittens are almost 6 weeks old!

THESE KITTENS ARE SOLD ALREADY!!

I haven’t been able to bring myself to post about the loss of another kitten.

The smaller red kitten started to fail 2 weeks ago. Apparently, Sweetie didn’t have milk for three kittens this time. I’d had to bottle feed the black female kitten for awhile, and she did fine. But the small red male didn’t. He just grew weaker, despite my feeding him. Then he began to have problems walking, and finally died. We’re so sad to have lost two kittens this time. We’ve never faced this before.

So we have two healthy playful kittens remaining. They’ll be getting their first vaccinations this week, and seeing the vet again.

I took 23 pictures of them Saturday, and these are the only ones that turned out fairly decent. My camera has a delay as it takes the picture, and they kept moving during that 2 second delay. Not to mention the flash problems … that either wash one out, make too dark a photo, or make the background glare. I have got to figure that problem out.

I’ll keep trying to get better pictures of them. I dislike posting poor photos, but poor photos are better than no photos.

This picture is lighter than his true coloring.

The truest coloring for both kittens, although she is winning this wrestling match and we cant see either face very well.

Fairly true coloring, although the glare behind her is distracting.

They’re climbing the cat post, running around the kitchen, and beginning to use the litter box. Soon they’ll be climbing the baby gates and escaping the kitchen. We can’t wait!
