The kittens are at their cutest. They are big fluffy balls of mobility. They have been able to run in the last three days. They have been biting and chewing a few things, but mostly each other. They have started to follow the paper on a string toy. They have made the occasional attempt to eat things, but no lasting attempt. Mum has been on a regime of lots of chicken liver, cattle kidneys and lambs heart. The chicken liver is a favourite. I tried some chicken carcases, and Momma didn't take to that so I made some food for myself, which was delicious. I will do that again.Here are just two fotos from this afternoon.
Jena takes on Ginger and Blackie, for she is a sucker for kittens.
Mother and brother have the remaining two... Tiger and Tan.
You can easily see how big they have grown in these five weeks by going back to the blog with the fotos of the kittens just a day after birth. ...... probably a quarter of the size.
