Who needs toys when you have a door:

:lovestruck: Cuteness overload :lovestruck: and Aztec handsome as ever, his bed has lots of nice textures/colours to it.

Are the kittens blocked from the room's entrance door? or have they tried to play footsie with Aztec too? and what does he think of the little toes?

Holy smokes, those kittens are big :eek:, CG looks very petite, how big is the daddy?

CG looks like such a good momma, those kittens are going to have wonderful personalities :lovestruck:.

Not sure how much exposure you have had to other kittens, but I think you will notice such a difference in the muscle mass and weight of your kittens as compared to kittens that are fed cat food, especially those who have been taken away from their momma at 6-8 weeks old.

No footsie with Aztec, he's decided kittens are nothing but pure evil :laughing:. He's okay with the smell and the sound of them, but as soon as he sees them he puts on his angry face.


Holy smokes, those kittens are big :eek:, CG looks very petite, how big is the daddy?

Daddy is a big boy, probably twice the size of CG.

CG looks like such a good momma, those kittens are going to have wonderful personalities :lovestruck:.

She is so amazing! I've had tons of friends over to help socialize the kittens, some with young children and babies, and CG has handled it all very gracefully. Even if she doesn't get too friendly with new people, she quietly watches everything going on and lets the kittens explore uninhibited. And boy do these kittens LOVE people. They're going to make some wonderfully outgoing companions for whoever adopts them.

You're not kidding! I haven't been around too many kittens this young, but I'm blown away by how fast these little guys are growing and how much energy they have. My neighbor's cat has 2 9 week old kittens (I know! :wall:) from the same dad (one kitten is a polydactyl) and mine are bigger at 6 weeks. What does make me sad though is the thought that they may end up on a mostly kibble diet later :yell:. Since potential adopters will be coming to my house to meet the kitties first, I'm going to try my hardest (without scaring them away) to convince them of the benefits of at least a quality canned food, if not raw. :fingerscr

:laughing::laughing: He has the same as Puddles

Daddy is a big boy, probably twice the size of CG.

That explains their size (along with the excellent diet for both momma and babies :thumbs up)

That is wonderful, because kittens will learn how to react to humans from their momma

Formerly known as "Norm", we've renamed him "Peppercorn":

"Torbs" is now called "Bijoux":

The kitten Zack and I are planning to adopt, originally called "Seven" because of his 7 toes on one foot, now referred to as "Carrot Cake", or Carrot for short:

I hate to TJ:o but I felt compelled to post this:

http://www.hemingwayhome.com/HTML/our_cats.htm

If anyone is ever in Key West Florida, I highly recommend visiting the Hemingway house. There are over 60 kitties, many of them descendants from one cat given to Hemingway which was a polydactyl. It's very interesting and they are all very well taken care of there.
