Getting to Know These Darling Kittens
From top top bottom (or left to right):
Selma, Hubie, Rhoda, Francine, and Lucinda.
These little Darlings are about four or five weeks old, which is is a little younger than our last few litters. They are pretty tiny, and only weigh between 12 ounces and a pound.
Their mama was a feral cat, and they were brought into the Humane Society on Monday. They were just a tiny bit scared at first. Little Hubie and Lucinda would hiss if you moved in a little too close. Once you held them for a second,it would stop. By day two, the hissing stopped completely, and now you're greeted with a purr or cry hello instead.
They are super active. They've got speed, but not coordination. They are most interested in playing with each other right now, and spend lot of time wrestling and rolling around.
Their Darling little personalities are starting to shine already, and it's been a pleasure getting to know them.
So far this is what we've seen:
Francine: Big talker. She cries hello, pick me up, put me down, feed me, feed me, feed me, love me.
Selma: Always happy to see a human. She waddles right up to say hello and will climb up in your lap.
Hubie: Big kitten in a tiny body, super animated, purr, purr, purrsonality plus!
Rhoda: Run, run, Rhoda! Curious little thing. LOVES to wrestle. Purrs while eating. Once fell asleep in her food dish.
Lucinda: Sweet, sweet, sweet purring machine. Total cuddler.
