It has begun…
Day 1 …
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 “cat 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 😊)
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.
Weights today: 303g 253g 308g 276g 284g 300g
I swear the kittens are like mushrooms!…growing over night!!
One week in (where did that go!) and we also have a couple of eyes opening.
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.
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!
Second weight in today and the kittens are thriving (see video below)…Maddison is such a good mummy 😻
