Geeze Louise they're growing fast.
They're starting to walk now, as opposed to belly crawling.
You know, that funny brand-new-legs walk that kittens do, one foot at a time, tail pointed straight out behind them, shaking like a junkie.
They're also beginning to groom themselves and even to play a bit.
Also? They're starting to develop personalities. Well, kittenalities, I suppose, if you want to get all technical on me.
Eenie: Thinks outside the box. Literally. Yesterday Miss Kitty and all her babies were in the box, but Eenie was just outside.
Meenie: Not a meanie. A sweetie!
Miney: This joker is a jokester.
Mo: He's my laid-back little dude. Doesn't say much, just sits back and looks at you with those eyes. At two weeks old, he's already heavily contemplated life.
Tiger: Biggest. Furriest. Leader of the band.
I've moved their box into a bigger enclosure so when they're big enough to leave the box they'll have a safe place to play.
I made the move a little sooner than I had planned, b/c when I went to check on them yesterday, I discovered Miss Kitty had moved them. She put them all in a desk drawer. They were all jumbled up in a pile on a bunch of pencils, peering out and saying, "Meow?"
And I said, "Miss Kitty, I've been there, honey. I know there are some days you just want to hide your kids away in a desk drawer or a closet or something, but you just can't do that, darlin'."
And she sighed a very heavy sigh as she watched me place them back in the box.
She's feeling a bit like a factory these days, poor girl.
I know she loves the little parasites....
They'll be ready in 5 1/2 more weeks! Taking orders now.....
