After dinner last night we were sitting on the couch watching the G-Litter kittens as they snoozed together.

Gustav in particular was sound asleep on his back, even though his brother Georgey was lying across his legs and getting a bit restless.

Then we caught the following priceless photo…

Video: G Litter kittens show their wrestling skills

Some great aerial acrobatics here.

And if you can ignore the main event, take look in the top right corner, where Gus has lost a toy inside a blue blanket, and he’s turning it inside out in his search.

Video: Gus chases a ball

I took this video one recent evening as 6-week-old Gustav played with the ball in the track.

I love how Gus tries to get the ball out of the track at one point, and how the ball sneaks up on him.

To complete our look at the G Litter kittens at six weeks old, here’s our blue tabby Gracie, asleep on a sheepskin.

Gracie loves to climb and was the first to tackle the 1.2 metre scratching post in the nursery. She has been all the way to the top and knows how to climb down too. No wonder she gets so tired.

Gus in the box

This photo probably needs a wee bit of explanation. Judee has a white plastic box in which she places each kitten for their daily weigh-in so they don’t jump off the scale.

But the kittens don’t necessarily want to get out of the box when the weighing is complete.

Gustav (Gus) demonstrates here the proper technique to anchor the box to the floor for as long as possible.

G Litter kittens tuck into their food

The G Litter kittens wasted no time moving into solid food almost a week ago and they now eagerly await their FOUR meals a day!

They also started eating dry food yesterday without any coaxing at all.

I’d write more, but the kittens are hungry…

Georgey plays in the tunnel

Here’s what kittens get up to when they’re in the fun tunnel.

In this photo, Georgey is in the front, and Gracie is behind him.

Georgey is a sealpoint. He seems to be the most outgoing of the G Litter. When we open the door to the cat nursery, it’s almost always George who is first to greet us. He also has the best appetite of the group – and none of the kittens are reluctant eaters.

The G Litter kittens will be six weeks old tomorrow and they are growing very quickly, as is my collection of photos waiting to be posted. So I’d better get on to that!

The kittens are all eating solid food (although an occasional feed from their mum is still a treat). They now have two rooms of the house to explore and they run everywhere – until they run out of energy and fall asleep.

A few days ago, Judee introduced the kittens to stuffed toys and we got this photo of Gabby playing with one.

She’s in the Buka basket – possibly the best cat toy ever made!

Video: G Litter kittens at play

I took this video yesterday of our G Litter kittens at play. The kittens were 34 days old, just short of five weeks.

The video opens with Gustav in the Buka Basket (a favourite toy of all our kittens) and Georgey trying to tip him out. Then Gabby and Gracie join in. Finally, their mum Cici stops by to make sure everyone is playing nicely.

And finally, number four in our series of photos of the G Litter kittens at three weeks old. (They actually turned 4 weeks today, so we’ll have to speed up the photos!)

This is Gustav (Gus), a male bluepoint with white.
