All the kittens have
at least one eye open today, however two of the kittens have a bit
of a sticky eye, so I have had to bath them. I hope it clears up
fairly quickly. I have weighed the kittens today and we have really
good weight gains again, 'Greeny' is now among one of the heavier
kittens, which is a relief. 'Clear' seems to be the one putting
the least on everyday, which is unfortunate because thats the one
I think might be a different colour and would like to have kept,
but another breeder told me it was always best to keep the strongest
for breeding!! What a dilemma!
Star seems to be quite
keen to leave the bedroom, although as soon as a kitten gives a
squeak, she shoots straight back into the basket!
I noticed last night
the kittens seem to be 'squeaking' less and sounding more like they
are 'mewing', which is really sweet!!
Star is fine.. was really
funny last night, I was in bed watching television, I had taken
the cover off the kitty bed, Star had got under my covers, and started
to 'claw' me... she popped back out, then popped back in and started
clawing again... it wasnt till she popped out again I realised it
wasnt her scratching me, it was the kitties which she was meticulously
placing under my duvet!!! I returned the moved babies to their bed
and re-covered them... she stayed put then!!
My friend Lesley came
to see the kitties yesterday and told me what lovely, round , healthy
kittens they are, which is really good to know... I thought they
were but its so hard to tell when they are your own!!
All is still well..
although Star is increasingly restless. I let her have the run of
the house tonight and she ran around like a thing possesed!!!
The babies are so gorgeous,
I was cuddling one in bed a couple of nights ago and it tried to
suckle my lip, which I thought was great, my husband was cringing!!!
All eyes are now open
and I am very confident that 'Clear' is a different point... Blue
maybe, but I think Lilac, although Lesley thinks it will still turn
out to be a Seal point! Maybe we should put money on it and make
it more interesting????
Pinky seems to have
a little discharge coming from his/her bottom area, which is causing
me to worry a little bit... I have been bathing it with warm salty
water twice a day and hope it will clear up, or we are off to the
vet!! Although this is happening, she/he has been putting on weight
at a good rate, as have all of the kittens, I am so pleased with
It says in the book
I am using that by the 2nd week they should have doubled their birth
weights, mine have already doubled them easily!!!
