The 7 "P" babies
Pipkin is still my little handful. He is the one who really loves my computer desk. He is full of energy even though he is only 390g. Paige, Paisley and Patton are quieter and get into less trouble. Pierce, well Pierce is Pierce. He loves his attention and has to share being a mama's baby title with Pecan and Pekko. There is always someone on my lap once I have a lap available. This batch of kittens has only needed one bath which saved countless hours. None have had diarrhea either so that has made things easier too. Paisley and Pecan are more gray in their dark areas than brown at this point. It can change though as they get darker when they get older. I held a couple of babies yesterday and got tears in my eyes thinking how far we have come in the almost 6 weeks I have had them. These guys will be hard to let go as I got them so very young. They are indeed little kittens now and no longer infants. It has been challenging but we did it. Watching them wash themselves, use the litter box, play with toys and each other and doing normal kitten things makes my heart sing. We have succeeded.
