Kittens are three weeks old! [View all]

Here are highlights from their third week. Beginning to stand and get those bellies off the ground, although very wobbly. Beginning to sniff, scratch and lick their paws. Looking all around with new eyes. They can't climb out of the box yet (and their mama is glad for that) but they enjoy it when I pick them up and let them out for a while. Mama cat is getting more comfortable with me, and I can even lift her out of the box without a fight (she jumps right back in, though).They are interested in sniffing Mama's food, so that will be the next thing: in about a week they can try some. They are weighing in at about 12-13 oz.

Hi, Mama!
