It's been an exciting day here at the "farm". The kittens have expanded their little world and made friends with a cow - a soft pillowy one. They've begun to use the litter box and eat dry kitten chow. I've even caught them drinking from Kelly's water bowl from time to time.
They are out of their safe secure bathtub and are roaming freely in the bathroom now. They seem to think it's a big deal but it was overwhelming to them when I let them stroll down the hall and into the livingroom this morning, mewing all the way. They were introduced to the big cat chasing dog who lives here, but she was behind bars at the time. Spouse held each kitten today and talked softly to each one since I told him he needed to nurture them too. He's been helping from time to time, but I'm the one who is the most hands-on with them and it's my voice they recognize. I really love that.
They're still some of the cutest little furry babies I've ever seen or held. I think they need names so I'm going to hold a kitten naming contest within the next few days and I'd like your help. I'll provide some details soon.
