Two Sleepless Nights

The kittens are thriving.

I, however, am more sleep deprived than usual. This is a particularly rowdy bunch at night.

It is amazing to see how different they are. Jules is a week younger than Kiseki and yet his eyes are opening already. Hers are still tight shut. I guess it could be the difference in nutrition. Jules had his mama for 5 days, Kiseki probably didn't even nurse one time. As good as the formula is now, it is still not the same as what God made.

Forrest no longer needs the Immodium, but the other two are just a bit looser than I like, to put it delicately. It is a balancing act, since they can dehydrate in the blink of an eye. Getting stopped up is easier to deal with -- if you want info about dealing with that in kittens, email me for details. Otherwise, I will let you use your imagination.
