"PREPARE TO BE OWNED"

Friday, 12 July 2019

We are into week 2...

And things are going really well....

Well I say that, but I think that perhaps Prune may say otherwise just now because her underside is rather scratched up and sore despite my having snipped the tips from those sharp little talons.

They are born with fully-grown, sharply pointed claws and are terrifying to snip. The kitten is wriggling and squealing... an anxious mum is therefore wanting nothing more than to rescue her baby from what must surely be a terrible fate. And me, I’m using the smallest pet clippers I could find, squinting to focus and praying at the moment I commit that don’t wriggle out of my control.

So, while Pru is spending less time feeding due to the free for all going on in the food scrum, some siblings I’ve noticed are also getting scratched heads too.

It’s noticeable in the photo below when it’s zoomed into...

The little lad that I’m feeding formula milk to is gaining weight nicely and today, has caught up with his Blue coloured sister as they both weighed in this evening at 144g. Meanwhile the two dark girls are 187g and a whopping 203g, so they have both more than doubled their birth weights.
