Here are the latest pictures of darling little Thomasina's kittens which my meowmies visited at the weekend, when the kits were 5 days old, their eyes were still glued shut with gunk but, yesterday, when they reached 8 days old, their eyes opened!
The little ginger one (Tigger) is the most active and adventurous one, not long after opening his/her eyes he started to try and whap his mother's tail, but being a clumsy little kitten whose feet seem too heavy for him/her to lift up properly, he/she didn't quite manage a whap, he/she appears to be waving slowly at his/her Mum's tail as opposed to whapping it!
Piglet the little black tabby, has a voracious appetite and just eats and sleeps and eats and sleeps, constantly suckling from his/her mum. Mum cat seemed most attached to this one - when we picked up the kittens to look at them Mum just remained laid back and watchful, but when we picked up Piglet, she got up out of the nest and had a concerned look on her face. Pooh also has 7 toes on one foot - one is a dewclaw which looks like it might fall off, it is tiny and only attached to the foot by the tiniest slither of skin - EW!!! Piglet has HUGE feet compared to the other two.
Pooh, the little grey tabby, is similar to Piglet in that he/she eats and eats and eats. Pooh gets the hiccups afterwards too and the force of the hiccup shakes his/her whole body, it is quite alarming to see a kitten with hiccups! Pooh is also a wriggler and is constantly on the move all over and around his mum.
