I’m not sure if this is all the 6 kittens or if I have doubled up – there are two that are very alike. Mama cat went for a bit of a walk in the yard today and left me with the kittens which is why I was able to get some good photos. She also climbed onto my lap for a pat today, so she is becoming friendlier. She hasn’t hissed at me since the very first day, which is a good sign.
This is the first kitten to be named. This is Button. K. chose the name. It is the first kitten to try out the food bowl, and it has come back everytime since, even having a go at the kitten biscuits I put out today. This one is explorer cat, too busy looking at all the new stuff to go and feed with mum, usually one of the last to latch on. Happy to be patted and have a bit of a play with us.
Some friends dropped by last night to see the kittens and a very proud mama cat came out and allowed herself to be patted by everyone, and one of the kittens was picked up and held for the first time.
