back with the crew

Got back Sunday afternoon to some pretty goopy eyes at itty bitty central. I was a little freaked out at first, because it must have been nap time when I got here, and everyone was pretty chill. I looked at both Justine and Jessica, and they each had one goopy eye, but both John Cougar and Mowgli had 2 each! I cleaned them all up, and gave them all a squirt of eye medicine, and everyone with a snotty nose got a squirt of saline nose spray. Needless to say, I was not extremely popular. By Sunday evening, everyone was playing as hard as ever.

Everyone is much better today, and only Jessica got a little eye medication, just in one eye. She was a tad blinky, but I think tomorrow even that will be resolved. Everyone is gaining weight, and eating, drinking and doing their kitty things, which means playing, kitty smackdown and catzilla!

Sport gets a big smackdown on Diego.

Jessica Catzillas Justine...

Justine pays her back!

Johnny Cougar is over 3lbs as of today, and Mowgli, Justine and Jessica are all over 2 1/2lbs. I think Sport is too. Just leaves Dora and Diego to get to weight. I do think that these guys are actually 3 different litters. Sport and Mowgli are much bigger than Dora and Diego. Not that it matters. I will keep them all until the little 'uns make weight. That will give me more time with Jessica and Johnny, to get them a bit more socialized.

Johnny Cougar on the "bucket."

Mowgli takes one of his seldom seen breaks. He is a bit of a spaz.

Sport takes a flying leap over Dora for the string toy.

Jessica gets her turn with the string.

Justine checks things out from up high.

Great narrative, Jamie! And good news! Way, way way past bed time, but I just had to check in. Hugs to everyone!

So cute, I hope all their eyes clear up. Smooches to all of you little kitties.

Good news, and fingers crossed for their eyes to clear up entirely.

Those action shots from the Kitten Wrestling Federation are great. Perfect sports reporting, too!

The Cougars and Little 'Uns are doing well. Still some sneezes, but fewer and farther in between. The only one still stuffy is Jessica, and she seems better today. I will post one more post with these guys before they go back for spay day.

Thanks for the update, Jamie! Hoping the sniffles are solidly on the run! Can't wait for the next post!
