Veronica and Jacks continue to grow
into typical kittens. Jacks, being a "boy" is most
definitely a pain to his mother and sister, constantly
instigating things and then acting all innocent. It is
very hard to get mad at him when, after he has been "bopped" by
his mother, he looks up at us with his big round eyes, as if to
say... "What did I do dad"?? :-)
In any case, both are wonderful
kittens, but we are already counting down the days to when Molly
can do this again... as is she!! :-) Another six months,
or so, but don't tell her that!! :-)!!
Jacks being a brother and "touching" Veronica!!
A quick shot catching Molly and
Veronica "Hanging" together... Just another case of "Like
Mother, Like Daughter". :-)
Just a quick update of mom and the
kids. Growing like weeds, exploring everything and racing
around like crazy...except when they crash. :-) They are
Molly - Jacks -
Now that Veronica and Jacks have
reached the age of 6 weeks (+), they have had their first set of
shots and are now starting to come out and explore the common
room. As is typical of most animals... Veronica (the girl)
is the one who does things first, with Jacks sitting back to see
how things go for her, before jumping in himself. Once
rolling, they are both a hand full for Molly.
Molly wants the kids out, but at
the same time, is learning that once they leave the confines of
the birthing room, they are no longer under her control.
Molly spends her time running from one end of the room to the
other, climbing the trees and chirping, cooing and putting a paw
on them, when needed. Molly is learning what it is like to
be a mom of active children, just like her mother had with her.
It can be exhausting!!
The kittens are mobile!!!
Actually, very mobile...running around their room, pouncing on
each other and anything else they can get to, including their
mother. Mom is almost constantly "talking" to them and
they will certainly be talkers in return...
Correction: Kitten 1 (on the
left below) is not a boy, which leaves us with one other
choice...a girl !!
The last week or so, have seen the
two boys doing what they do best at this age... Eating,
sleeping and growing!! Molly is doing very well with her
first babies, is very attentive and comes out from time to time
to visit with some of the other mom's, but mostly, to have a
word or two (dozen) with her own mother. If these two boys
carry forward with their mother's and grandmother's
vocalizations...they will be talkers!!
Note: Though not set in
stone at this moment, Kitten 1 has a potential new owner, who
has first choice, if they should choose not to take him, then he
would be available. Kitten 2 is under evaluation for
Molly had her kittens today.
As usual, not a whole lot to look at, at this moment, but they
are here and Molly is doing a good job with them. During
the delivery, she had some help from her mother, mostly due to
her appearing to not understand "what" was going on, but she
caught on quick and things are progressing forward.
