Mummycat Monday...

Well the weekend was kind of hectic here as the kittens are now so much bigger and far more hungry all the time. However Mummy handed out a few nice new toy mice from our goody bag and much of the frustration has now been taken out on these. Tigmut'hep has even managed to de-tail his one already... He says this proves he's far more stressed out than the rest of us (I put this down to his having finished his Matatabi and it being a little early in the catnip season!)

Ooh taking of catnip, Mummy bought us two new varieties of catnip at the garden centre she visited on Sunday with Daddy and D'Boy! She says she's going to look out for a few new planters for the run and redo all out catnip collection so that it's in one or two nice big trough type pots if she can fine some she likes! :) I do so like sniffing the purrty 'nip plants and laying in the middle of them when it's all hot in the summer...

Anyway right now I'm busy keeping the now 5 week old kittens busy and out of trouble! This is a very difficult task at times... However LG had a good bath this morning as you can see. Boy made the most of Mummy allowing the kittens onto the bed for a bit and had a good stretch out, while BG decided to shock Mummy and pose nicely for a photo! :)

As you can see they've been doing a LOT of growing this past week and are now more like mini cats than ickle babies any more. BG and Boy are having 3 good meals of chicken or turkey a day and LG has decided to start on a mixture of meat and formula all mixed up into a smoothy as she just can't quite face proper dinners yet. However she's been packing on the grams on this mixture and is now happy to accept her meals as well as her visits to the milk bar! ;) So I expect that she'll be on proper dinners like her siblings before much longer, with a few good servings of mothers milk each day, especially at bedtime it's no wonder that all of the kittens are now about 600g's! :)

Oh and before I forget to tell you the kittens gave me a nice tinful of Applaws chicken (my personal favourite dinner) yesterday, as well as LG letting me finish up her milk and meat smoothy when she was all full-up! You've just gotta love the perks of being a mummy some days... :)

Even though I check the website most days, I always look forward to the Monday blog posting, complete with photos! The little ones are growing so fast!

#1 noted the request for more photos of the little alien in the back room and will see what she can do tomorrow. We received a big order of Applaws kitten food on Saturday, and he has been scoffing that
