The message from Meg is very encouraging.
She has the 7 kittens we were raising, and she says, "We have tootsie rolls!" Among those of us who raise kittens, it is a good message. No more back end trouble!
The marble tabbies are weaned; the Siamese, who are older, want nothing to do with the dry food, although they can eat it if they are desperate.
They will all be scheduled for spay/neuter soon.
As for the 5 we have, the two Siamese are about 3 weeks old, and sweet, beautiful little girls. Their points are coming in, one darker than the other.
The tabbies and orange tabby (the only one we think is a boy) are a week old, and eating like crazy.
We have vaccinated, and will continue to do so. They are all on good bacteria, and we have had to flea treat.
Ah, the cycle of life.
