ABIGAIL's Kittens Growing and Thriving


ABIGAIL with her three kittens.  The Colorpoint kitten is Chester.  He is adopted.  The only boy.          The Classic Tabby in the back is one of the girls, and she is adopted.  And the Blue W/White kitten in front is a little girl and I am keeping her for my new breeder girl. Her name is Ilya.  {pronounced Eelya}

They are now 5 1/2 weeks old and will go home December 13th. 

They are playing, eating (a LOT) and having fun.

                                                 OH, Hello!!!

                                                               I'm exploring and having fun.

                                               Hello,  I'm the boy....gotta love me!

Two little cuties, open, clear eyed, curious little bodies, full of fluffy cuddliness.{I know that's not a word}

Climbing on the couch with Mommy.  Notice it is a heated blanket, so that they can be comfortable even with the heater going for the whole building.  Little pampered babies.

                                   Mommy still likes her box to lay in and relax .  She's never been one to use the birthing boxes that I built for the Moms.  She loves her cardboard box "cave".

Bright Blue Eyed, Boy.

Lounging around with mommy on the couch.

Ilya's picture a week or so ago.
Remember when mommy wanted to keep them in the large crate?  Here are some of the pictures from that time too.

Chester on top of the doll bed in their room as well.

All three when they were venturing out of  the crate. I have since  taken the crate out of their room since they are running and playing all over their room.

You can really tell the difference in the ages from when they were still in the crate to the newest pictures now.

Interesting ways to eat your food.

Getting their wet food in a divided child's dish.. Works perfectly.

OK,  we are done.  These kittens don't seem to ever eat all their food.  But they are getting quite fat and sassy.

And now it's getting to be nap time.  Fed and played out and getting so sleepy.

      Mommy's sleepy too.

Good Night for now.  Shhhhh.......we'll talk later.

That's all for now from Cherished Siberians.

ABIGAIL's Kittens

 ABIGAIL's kittens are growing really well.  They are so sweet.  Their eyes are fully open and they are playing amongst themselves.  They cannot walk real well yet.  And ABIGAIL kept them inside the extra large carrier that she gave birth in (instead of her birthing box)  to this day.  Even though I fixed up a very comfortable area for her and them.  But she has her own ideas.  My cats seem to do that a lot.  BUT  ABIGAIL never minds me touching her kittens and loving on them.  As long as I love on her first and the longest. (smile)

These were before their eyes were open.

Here their eyes were beginning to open

AND  look at the difference now.

They don't play so hard that they have each other screaming yet.  They are just gently pawing at each other now.  The rough and tumble play  will be another 3 weeks or so away.

And they sure are sweet!!!
And they already don't mind me picking them up to cuddle.
ABIGAIL's kittens are usually that friendly and chill though.
I'll get more as they grow.
