The kittens have changed so much in 6 days!!

Yes, Circle is playing with the kittens every time they are out now!!  She is having a ball with them as you can see!!!  The kittens are coming out of the box now when they are ready to eat or go potty--- they crawl out no problem!!!
The kittens are a girl and a boy.  I will not name them b/c I do Not plan on keeping them at this time.
When they were at the vets a woman saw them and fell in love with them and said she wanted them when they were old enough to eat and use the litter box on their own.......   She left her name and phone # to call when they were ready~~~~~~~~~~~  Hope she doesn't change her mind!!

The kittens are so much work and expense. They are on formula and baby food.  They are eating very little baby food, about a teaspoon a day now.  Does any one out there know of something to wipe their little butts off with when the pee and poop b/c at first I was using cotton balls and that was enough but as they are growing so fast the cotton ball in not enough any more???
I will be so glad when they can use the littler box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  About how old are they when they start???  Any one know?????

Love coming your way, Circle,  kittens,   & Fern


  1. How adorable are these kittens, Fern?! How kind of you to take care of them until they are able to be adopted! I'm sure it is a lot of work to care for them but the rewards are great!
    I would use baby wipes to clean them up as the wipes are disposable and inexpensive.

  2. Cute kitties,
    Cant help you much on the kittie info cuz we are strickly doggies at our house. Circle will miss them when they are gone.

  3. Baby wipes work well. With moms, kittens start using the box on the own as early as 4 weeks. Without - depends. Although if Circle is willing to act as "older sister" they may pick it up sooner. Make sure to use regular clay litter since like little kids they stick EVERYTHING in their mouths. Paws crossed that the woman stays should get her email and send pictures - that tends to work. :)

  4. Shhhhhhhhhh now their ownittle personalities will kick in

  5. I hope Circle is able to teach those kitties. It would help a lot with their progress. You are doing such a great job, Fern. They are gorgeous xx

  6. I know you are having a blast with these babies. Looks like Circle is too.

  7. Looks like you helped them over the hump. Like a couple others have said, I'd use baby wipes. enjoy the kitty chaos :)

  8. My Mummy says those kittens are very cute! Hope she doesn't go getting ideas...

  9. Howdy Fern, those little kitties are really cute. We suggest trying the litter box very soon cause they may copy Circle and start to use it. Otherwise maybe the baby wipes like some others have suggested. Have fun with them while you can. Hope the lady does give them a forever home. No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

  10. Circle will be a great teacher with the litter box, if she hasn't already.
