Operation Catio ‘Day 1’

It has begun…

Before…

Day 1 …

Operation Catio!

Tomorrow is an exciting day! Hopefully (I say hopefully as one builder let us down a few weeks ago) our paving will be laid for our outside safe area for the girls. If you didn’t know a catio is a cat enclosure or β€œcat patio” that provides feline safety and enrichment outdoors. It is a purrfect solution while you enjoy peace of mind knowing your cat is always safe, whether it is an indoor or outdoor cat.

Our catio will come off our small kitchen extension and the French doors will open out into the catio. We have gone big! It is approximately 9 meters in length x 3 meters wide x 2.4 meters high!…obviously the girls know nothing about it 😼 but i am extremely excited for them ☺

I will post pictures as it progress, but in the mean time, here are some beautiful photos/video of Pixel I took this morning while I was supervising her in the garden (won’t have to do that once the catio is installed 😊)

Week 3 – Day 13 – Cutie Pies

Week 2 – Day 11 – Eye Eye πŸ‘ πŸ‘

Kittens open their eyes about seven to ten days after birth. At first, the retina is poorly developed and vision is poor. Kittens cannot see as well as adult cats until about ten weeks after birth. Kittens develop very quickly from about two weeks of age until their seventh week. All kittens are born with blue eyes which change at approx 7 weeks, at this age the adult eye colour will begin to emerge.

Day 6 – Sexing the kittens

Sexing Kittens

Newborn and tiny kittens are so immature that it’s nearly impossible to tell their sex. Once they’re six or eight weeks old, however, their genitalia becomes more visually obvious.  

  • Female cats: When looking at a female cat’s genital area, the space just under her tail, it will look like an upside down exclamation point (!) with the long slit of the vaginal area below the anus. The anus and vagina are typically only about half an inch apart. In kittens, the anus and vagina may both look like dots, and they may be even closer together.
  • Male cats: The male cat has a larger separation between the anus and the penis, with the testicles in the middle. Both of these openings look more like dots, circles, or a colon (:) than like slits or lines.

So (as always with the help of Gwen and FaceTime kittens bums!) we think we have 3 girls & 3 boys…although this is not set in stone!
