The babies are growing like crazy! It's not so obvious just looking at them (like in a still photo), but they've gained weight each day over the three days I've been weighing them. They're also less awkward and more adventurous (but still endearingly clumsy!)
I've been letting Mama Isabel out a few times a day, giving her some time away from her kittens. I had the five little ones with me on the bed this morning while Izzy roamed. It's such a precious experience, having wee kitties climbing all over one! At one point Mama hopped up to check on the babies, meowed a bit, took a good look, and then meandered off again. I guess she was satisfied that her offspring were in good hands.
Being a data person, I just have to post the table of the kittens' weights (in ounces). . .
Ok, a graph too, can't resist. . .
Dot appeared to have lost weight between 9/1 and 9/2, but I think there was just some measurement error there. She must have been moving around and given too high a weight on 9/1.
