Lots of Pictures
The G babies are 2 weeks old now. They are eating well and are gaining very nicely. They are used to the routine now which makes things easier. The first 48 hours is always a learning time for new babies and for me as I get to know them. They are strong little babies and look like bigger kittens now their eyes have opened in the last 2 days. They drink well and enjoy their bottles. On Saturday the two litters can intermingle as quarantine will be off. Getting up at 2 am is a challenge for me to make myself get up. But once I am up and moving and the babies are eating and purring it is all worth it. Two more weeks of getting up then the littlest ones will be 4 weeks old and can go through the night. They all look different which makes feeding time easier. A few bum washes have been necessary as the constipating effects of cats milk have worn off and now they have soft mushy poops. I have had to change their bed a couple of times a day so they can be clean and dry in their cage.
