What a turkey!

Some kittens, you know? Butterball was so good at posing for pictures that we couldn’t pick just one. Sara’s boy is getting chunky and (after a few misses) has mastered the litter box. He had a habit of leaving his deposits right in front of the door, which made entering his room an adventure. Kind …

Looks what Santa left under the tree!

Lola gave birth to her kittens starting at about 11:00PM on Christmas eve and finishing around 3:00AM on Christmas morning. She had five kittens, but the last was stillborn. The remaining four are doing great, eating well, and gaining weight nicely. Although the first kitten was born a bit before midnight, technically the litter birth …

Starry’s kittens come out swinging…

The Swing State litter is doing great! They learned how to use the litter box with minimal fuss (yay!) and are eating solid food. Getting them interested in wet food was a bit of a struggle at first. Usually after a few days of putting their faces up to the food they get the idea, …

Too Much Information

Too much information running through my brain Too much information driving me insane – The Police Butterball is growing quickly after some concerns that he wasn’t growing fast enough at first. He wasn’t interested in formula but he’s been gaining weight¬† steadily for more than a week, so no worries. Part of our concern came …

One for Queen Sara Saturday… “Nice placenta!”

Queen Sara Saturday gave birth to a single kitten yesterday afternoon. She was a few days late so we were a little worried and considering a caesarean section, but she did it all on her own! The kitten is very active, squeaky, and is very good at nursing. We’re calling him or her Butterball since …

Squeaky Kittens

A few days after her kittens we born, Starry Night decided to start moving her kittens onto our bed. Well, it’s better than under the bed. Most likely she wanted to be close to us but didn’t want to leave her babies behind.¬† Unfortunately, that isn’t the safest place for kittens, so we had to …

They’ve got faith of the heart

Lily’s litter has been doing very well! Since our last post about them they quickly progressed from needing formula (because Lily wasn’t giving them all quite enough milk) to eating solid food. They’re growing fast, climbing over everything, and run to greet us when we come in the room. Thankfully, they all adapted to the …

Nums in your tums

Lily’s kittens continue to progress and are doing very well with their supplemental feedings. We haven’t had to help out many mamas like this over the years, and certainly not ones this big, so we’re learning a lot! We feed the kittens on a schedule, but you never know if any of them just finished …

Tales from beneath the radio cabinet

Two weeks on Lily’s kittens are doing well, but she’s making us work for it! First, we decided to see if we could convince Lily to move into a proper nest instead of keeping the kittens under the antique radio cabinet. Thinking maybe it was the location, we moved the radio cabinet and put the …
