FINALLY Streak ate from a dish! Silly me, I've been trying to tempt him with canned food and milk-moistened dry food. He went for the plain dry kitten chow!
I've reduced the frequency of weighing to every other day, figuring they wouldn't be growing so fast. They're still putting on weight daily!
Two of the kittens are currently attacking an old sock. Or they were, and now they're going for each other.
Maybe this is a little silly, but I'm trying to call Isabel by her name and not "Mama." She IS a mama cat and a good one, but she's also a beautiful kitty with a sweet disposition and her own identity. (Projecting, maybe?) I always give her some cuddling, too, when I visit the babies. Isabel really is a very sweet cat; she loves to be cuddled and petted. She's never tried to scratch or bite me, and she's always waiting for me at the top of the stairs when I come visit. I suspect she may have some purebred Siamese in her lineage--she's long and lean with a wedge-shaped head and a whippy tail. Izzy's rather vocal, too. Some people might find that annoying, but I think it's sweet.
I haven't noticed any obvious or strong alliances forming among the kittens. A couple of times I've seen them segregate themselves by color.
