Greta and Garrick
Pierce is doing very well. His outlook was not very bright but I have been determined to have him be a survivor. He loves the protein powder mixed with water and will drink it from a bowl. He was eating boiled hamburger mixed with the protein powder and a bit of water. Now he is a bit fussy and likes his hamburger freshly boiled--no leftovers for him. I don't eat many leftovers either so I totally understand. He is full of energy and it makes me grin when he is running around and playing with Paige and Pekko. He looks wonderful. I cried this morning when I weighed him and realized the protein powder plus eating a lot of hamburger enabled him to gain 40g. He looks so much better now he has put on some weight. He even really dug into the canned food when I got home from work. He so enjoyed it and I hd not yet seen him really did into the canned food with enjoyment.
Here is a peak at what my morning looked like today. I got up at 6:30 am and planned what order I would do things as soon as I got out of bed. I got up and fed Garrison, Pekko and Paige some canned food. I got the bottle ready for Greta and Garrick and fed them and made them pee. Then I got the bottle ready for Barnaby, Booker, Brazil and Boston. I fed them. I gave Paige her antibiotics. I made myself a cup of coffee. I whipped up a batch of muffins and baked them while I got ready for work. I fed the "G" babies again, fed the "B" babies again, got my lunch ready for work and left for work at 8:40. I felt like I had done well though every minute after I get out of bed is filled with things to do. Change it? Give it up? Never while there are babies who need me. My reward is when they are healthy, grow and are normal kittens.
