Tummy Tuesday!

It's amazing how fast these Tummy Tuesdays come around! My tummy is certainly growing with each week now and when Mummy weighed me on Sunday afternoon, I weighed in at 3.6Kg - that's nearly 1/2 Kg more than I normally weigh... Mummy tells me that this week and next are when the kittens grow the most, so it makes sense that I'm very hungry and have gained a lot of weight!

This time next week the kittens should each be about 6cm long, where as they were only 2.5cm long the other week! Mummy estimates that they're about the size of large walnuts about now... :) Though I'm still running around and playing like normal, including climbing the sides of the run!

I've noticed that I don't like some things I used to like eating, and want to eat a lot of other things that I normally wouldn't bother with - such as Ox liver that Mummy's started to cook for me a few times a week! :) It's delicious cut up small and mixed with my usual kitten food - personally I like it best with my chicken flavour pouches!

Mummy's being very good about remembering to give me my kitty tea every lunchtime (that's cat milk with a little added hot water, to make the whole thing slightly warm to drink), it tastes so nice and creamy and I'm happy to suck down a good portion of it. Though I still leave a few drips for my lovely brother Ramses to clean up for me - well it's so sad to see a Mancat cry! ;)

The other thing I've noticed is that I'm feeling the need for more fussing and attention than normal... As such I threw myself at Mummy and Dad as soon as the alarm went off this morning! In face I kept Mummy pinned down for a good long fussing and nearly made everyone late for breakfast... ;)
