a lot of purring around now, and the little brown one purrs when
I stroke him, which is pretty good going for such a young fella!
Today for the first time there are signs that they're interested
in looking around and playing (biting each other and waving their
legs in the air) as well as just sleeping and eating. Things begin
to get a bit more interesting from this point on!

don't scream so much when I visit now, and they're getting more
easy-going about being picked up. Their little ears are looking
bigger, and moving up their heads noticeably, but they're still
very floppy and velvety!

tired out today, but the babies are full of beans ...

manage to update today as a bite at a cat show left me surprisingly
incapacitated and the camera batteries went flat so I couldn't
upload the pictures to the computer. The little brown one didn't
gain much weight over the last two days, so I'll supplement him
a bit tomorrow just in case his fat sisters are pushing him off
the good teats.

are showing signs of wanting to climb out of the box - beginning
to look up a lot and climb up the sides a bit. Missie still has
6 very active teats, so they're clearly making the most of the
lack of competition!

day! The babies got their first taste of freedom as they were
decidedly frustrated this morning. The big kittening box has now
been put on its side and they can walk out if they want. Having
tried it out, they decided they preferred their cave, but Missie
was very happy. Reckless (11 months old) decided this was a perfect
time to become an aunt, but seemed to be having trouble deciding
whether to be a baby instead, and Teddy came and visited his nephew
and nieces and approved. Lots of pictures today, but it was such
a lovely scene I couldn't resist!

believe it's three weeks already. So here's the rogues gallery
again (still in order of birth). The little brown one now purrs
as soon as you stroke him (adorable).
