Mummycat Monday: two weeks old!





Friends, today my mousies are two weeks old, and already they're looking less like mousies all the time! They're too big for one thing. They've grown massively in the last week! Also, they're now starting to miaow rather than just squeak. I've begun to talk to them which my human finds very amusing in the daytime, but not so great when I mingle that with my shouting at her at night.






I did feed all the babies just like I said I would. There's pictures to prove it! See the first one? you can see I'm being a good mummycat! Don't you think they've grown?





The next one shows Porker, and boy is he bigger than everyone else! His weight tonight is 268 grams. Isn't he a handsome fella! He doesn't cry now as much when the human cuddles him. He still has his moments, but they're getting less and less all the time.





Then there's little Hamster. He's still the smallest at only 234 grams, but he's slowly catching up, and he gained 13 grams in the last 12 hours which we're both very pleased with! He feels much skinnier than the others though, and the human says she has this funny feeling about him. She says something just doesn't feel right. She's hoping she's wrong, and so am I, but she thinks he might become an angel quite young in life. Why she thinks that she can't say definitively, but he's just different to the other two in so many ways. He's quieter. he doesn't fight, doesn't struggle, doesn't cry half as much, and doesn't suckle with the same dedication even now that he has the energy to do it. he also feels different when she handles him. I guess only time will tell, but please keep him in your thoughts.





Next we have another picture of Porker. Isn't my boy cute!





Then there's the Baby. She's the human's favourite, maybe because she knows we'll most likely end up keeping her, but maybe, just maybe, cuz she's the cutest. She loves tickles, and licks the human whenever she obliges. She has a tiny little squeak of a miaow, and she is the only one who will stay totally limp and asleep in the human's hands when she picks her up. She's just a little poppet, and I love her a lot! She weighs 240 grams today, so Hamster is catching her up nicely. She's the only one who has trippled her birth weight, although Porker is getting mighty close.





Wow, that's quite a lot of news! I'm all tuckered out! Anyway, as you can see from the last picture, there's no rest for a busy mummycat, so I think I'll head off now. I have hungry babies to see to. Ahem, I mean mousies!

Aw Tia, pretty soon your Mousies will be Kittens! We will purr very hard for Hamster...perhaps he's just a little slow to develop, paws crossed.
It's neat that you talk to your babes...maybe your Human can get some video so we can hear them!

Tia, your babies, errrr, we mean mousies are just adorable, so sweet, and yes, such handsome young men. And such a cute-cute darling litte girl! But of course they'd have to be since they are your babies, ummm, mousies. And yes, see, you are such a good mommie. We are so proud of you, and your mousies.

Tia oh your little mousies are so beautiful! Of course that makes sense since they are your babies! We are so glad that they are all gaining weight, and we are sending lots of extra purrs and prayers for little Hamster - we hope that he will get big and strong and that he is just a late bloomer. And we can see what a wonderful mommy you are to all of them - we are glad that you are all doing good right now!

Your mousies are so cute!! We're purring for Hamster. Sometimes kittens (mousies) just take a little longer to develop.

Tia, thank you for sharing these pictures of your beautiful mousies. They are such precious little souls. You and your Mum have done really well. We hope Hamster will be ok, like Sniffie above said, some babies just need a bit more time to get fully thriving. Our Mum thinks all the little mousies noses are gorgeous!

Hey, Tia. Your pet mousies are pretty little furrballs. Love them.

It looks like all the mousies eyes can open now, although they don't seem all that interesting keeping them open.

Clooney said...

Oh you all are just the sweetest. Blessings of good health to all of your beautiful mousies Tia, we will purr for all to be well and in good health.
