growin' up

The Who's are growin' like weeds. They look huge compared to Cindy Lou Who, who is pretty small. I have a feeling they are gonna be way bigger than their mama.
Everyone belly up to the bar. Or is that bar up to the belly?

They are fighting over "belly time" and squawk and squeal to get a nipple! Everyone is growing, so I guess they are all getting enough time in at "the bar".


Yo! Bartender!

It's nice to have a mama cat around. Makes my life much easier. All I need to do right now is feed Cindy Lou, and scoop her box every day. Easy! The goopy eye seems to be going away, and life is easy...but it won't be long before they are all running around my office. Then the fun begins.

Checked on Gadget today. I was told he got a bit of a URI shortly after he arrived, but he is doing fine now, and on view. Might have to go see him this week, and meet the new Executive Director. I hear he is going to do great things there. I hope so.

OMG they're so CUTE! And they're getting to look so much more like miniature *cats* now...(I've found that as they approach that 4th week, kittens really start to look more and more like "real" cats). As for Cindy Lou...Did the vet or the shelter have a guess on how old she was? Could be she's tinier compared to the kittens because she's only really a kitten herself (less than a year)? My Kayla :) (many thanks to Lisa at Space Paws! ;) ) was probably a teenage kitteh-mom, as she has filled out nicely even since I got her about 8 months ago...

Yes Ali, Cindy Lou is young. Could be she got pregnant her first heat! She is not a year old would be my bet. Probably younger than Bosley (who will be a year old next month)

Such a cute family!

Great "Yo Bartender!" pic!! A lovely family.

Seeing kittens grow substantially bigger than their moms is so amazing. Winifred was a teenage mom (still 7 lbs and change) and she was dwarfed by her kids, Morticia (12 lbs.) and Gomez (15 lbs).

Fingers crossed for Gadget!!

I'm so happy mom and kittens are happy and healthy. Best wishes for Gadget; I'm sure he'll be happy with a visit from a familiar person such as yourself.

Just a thought about Bosley: the world record holder for smallest adult domestic cat weighs 3.3 lbs. Could Bos be smaller than that?

Jamie said...

Humm. I believe Bosley is closer to 4 pounds than 3.3. But he is close! And I am SURE Bosley is by far the sweetest tiny cat anywhere!

4 pounds! Wow! GO BOSLEY!!! :)
