blue eyes

 Looks like the little light colored Whos will be keeping their blue eyes.  Martha May Whovier will most likely have green eyes like her mama, but the others will have siamese blue eyes. They will be scooped up as soon as they go on view.
To the top!
Head on a platter?

They are all very active now, and really into exploring. (i.e, making a mess!) They love the little scratching pole, and mastered climbing it early on.
Bishop claims HIS bucket
Who, me?

Bosley finally discovered that he liked the "bucket" on the kitty condo. Bishop spent an hour or 2 ticked off that Bosley was in "his" bucket. He finally decided to take it back. He was nice enough to share. We actually had to get a condo with 2 of them, because even if Bishop was in the bucket, Buck would lay on top of him. I would hear Bishop almost gaging, as Buck would pin his neck on the rim! At 15 pounds, Buck is a big boy! Now there are 2, and peace reigns again.

roamin' the office

Martha May crashes in the crinkle hut.
The Whos are all out and about these days. They have found the crinkle hut, and they LOVE it. Even Cindy Lou likes to sleep in there.

Cindy Lou is officially done with the "potty training" and the little ones are using the litter box on their own. I cleaned the office a bit today, and found a couple of wet spots, so I put each one of them in the box, one at a time. Martha May used it to poop and pee! Hurray! Sargent Who-lihand used the scale bowl. Oh well, there are worse things. ;)

Tickle fight!
Everyone is growing, and Cindy Lou won't let them nurse as often now, so they are eating solids pretty well. It's nice to have a mama to help with weaning. They still try to overwhelm her to nurse. She has more resistance power than I do when a bottle is involved. ;)

Mayor Augustus climbs the post.
Sargent Who-li-hoop?

Martha May fights back.

Frankenkitty-Just in time for Halloween.

Pile on.

quick happy post

Gadget got adopted! All I know is he was adopted, and is an only cat in this home. Hurray for Gadget!

More pix of the Whos tomorrow.

heading out of the nest

Big first steps out
The Who's are starting to explore! They don't go far, but they are starting to venture out. They are also interested in what Cindy Lou is eating.

They do have teeth, and they know how to use 'em! They bite the crap out of each other! They squeal all the time, and I turn around and they are biting each other. I can't remember a litter that made this much noise, and that fought so much. They are either a tough bunch, or a bunch or cry-babies. I haven't decided yet.

Sargent Who-lihand checks out the food bowl
One thing I did find interesting. Most times when I get a reflection in cats eyes from the camera flash, I can't fix it with the normal photoshop red eye tool, because they aren't red, they are green. These guys all have red eyes in the flash....except for Martha May, the tabby. I wonder if that means they will have blue eyes? I think they will.

Smack down
More  Stooges action

I checked the shelter's website, and Gadget is no longer listed. I haven't heard back from them, but I sure hope that means he was adopted, and not in sick bay.

Chow time!
Nap time.

cuteness prevails

Only room for 2! Take a number.
Cindy Lou and the Who's are doing well. Babies are all growing, and Cindy Lou is being a very good mama. The babies are growing so fast, they pretty much can't all eat at the same time. Cindy Lou is so little!

Both the boys (Sargent Who-lihand, and Mayor Augustus Maywho) love to fight! It's really funny to watch, since they are so young, and uncoordinated. One of them is a squealer...I think Augustus. And Sargent Who-lihand is a biter. They are always at it.

Sargent Who-lihand and Betty Lou Who
I went to the shelter and saw Gadget. He looks good. Seems to be less shy, and they have him with another kitten, who looks an awful lot like Bosley! She even had some of Bosley's mannerisms. I think Gadget will be fine, but there are a LOT of tabby's there right now. I hope someone sees him and falls in love with him, and maybe they will adopt his new friend too.

In the meantime, we will just keep doing what we do, loving these babies, and of course Cindy Lou.

A little 3 Stooges action

Mama attack!

I suspect it won't be long before these babies start to tumble out of their little box, and will be wreaking havoc all over my office. THEN we will have some good photos.
