The kittens, in birth order, are:
Calina is a great mum, and the kittens are all thriving. Each is gaining weight steadily, wriggling for best feeding position, and sending out a chorus of squeeks every time Calina returns to the nest. They have just opened their eyes, but are still very wobbly on their feet.
Our lovely vet Justine did a house visit on Monday to do the kittens’ first health check. They were pronounced healthy and adorable!
Our other 2 Siberians, Harley and Mari, are VERY curious about what’s happening in the ‘nursery’, but won’t get a peek until the kittens are 6 weeks old. Until then, Calina will have to update them during her occasional forays through the rest of the house.
Check back for more photos coming soon.
