13 days and We've Got Grooming!
The kittens had their first real visitors this morning, and they were
so good! All kittens were really well handled, and Millie was cuddled
to within an inch of her life! Gabby made new friends and Tia actually
fell in love! I think that in itself is the seal of approval on
whether these folks are a good home or not. When Tia loves you, you've
gotta be something special!
All of the babies' eyes are open now, all fully except for little
cream who only has a teeny bit more to go. The boys still look a bit
dazed by everything, but the girls are readily tracking movements,
making eye contact and generally engaging. Stripe was even videoed
grooming herself (she did this more than once, and it was a systematic
licking, so not a fluke). I've never seen a kitten do this so young,
and was duely impressed.
The visitors took tons and tons and tons of photos and I'll give you a
few tonight, but I'm going to make you wait until tomorrow for the
bulk of everything. Aren't I horrible? Tonight you get to see the gang
in a group, but tomorrow you'll see them all individually. They've
grown so much in this last week it's unbelievable!
