Good morning, kitties

Yesterday, I thought Samantha was already feeding her kittens, so with Jayden back in his house, we went out for a movie. We were delayed and came back before 8pm. The kittens were all very hungry. Looks like maybe Samantha had not fed them again.

The thing is, feeding them while they are also on Samantha’s milk is tricky. So I have to gauge how hungry they are and know how much to give them. I don’t want them to go hungry but at the same time, I cannot overfeed them. Overfeeding is very dangerous.

Indra does not quite like being fed by syringe. Kai and Akira are okay.

Here are the updated weights:

Riley woke me up at 3am this morning to feed the kittens. Yes, cats read minds. Riley knows I wanted to wake up, so she woke me up. Gently too. But nudging me and lying on my arm.

So I’ve been up since then…

This is Indra. Sigh, he is still going for the top nipple which I think does not have much milk.

Today, the kittens are 10 days old! I wonder if Samantha will move them again. There is probably nowhere “safe” to move them to. She wants a “roof” over them. I could open up a wardrobe for her. But I think this place is better.

I hope she won’t move them.
