Saturday Caturday


I missed posting on Warm Kitten Wednesday...but took photos and a little video this morning, and you will see the difference 10 days makes!

Today was "moving day" for Coco and her kittens! They packed up and moved into their spacious new digs...my master bathroom. That is the next step in their growing up!

When they reach about 3 weeks of age, they start to nibble on each other, groom (lick) themselves, bobble about instead of crawl and are able to climb out of the kitten box--but not educated enough to know how to get back in!

That is when they get to move into the bathroom, with a larger, open ended kitten box and toys to play with...but mostly at this age, they play with each other! There are 2 kitten sized litterboxes in there, too, with World's Best Litter in them so it's safe if they nibble on it (and they do at this age).

They haven't started using the boxes yet, but will soon as they start sampling Coco's canned food. They often will pee in the box before they start on solid food, but til then, Coco cleans stimulates them to eliminate by licking them...but she stops that soon as they are eating something besides mama's milk.

They continue to gain weight well and I finally can tell you for sure...Yes, they are all boys! And the two red boys, there is a difference in them too, so I am not confusing them any longer. Cassanova is a true red tabby, as evidenced by his pale white chin and facial markings. The stripes on his legs is also more defined. Valentino is a red, and his striping is "ghost markings" and will fade as he gets older. He does not have the white on his chin and face.

It's harder to tell the difference in the photos, but easy in person. Also, Cassanova has a bit of a wider face, too. They weight almost the same, but their body style is a little different, with Valentino being slightly more racy, if you can call a chubby kitten racy!

Well, here are the latest photos (you can click on them to biggify) and a little "moving day" movie, too...
