When they first arrived, these four struggled to put on weight. They were eating plenty, but all had a little bit of diarrhea, so things were going out as quickly as they were coming in, which slowed down their growth. We started them on some probiotics, and things started firming up a bit. The boys got better first, and now the girls are fine too. They're eating wet food four times a day, and snack on crunchies between meals. Everyone had a huge growth spurt over the weekend, and suddenly our scrappy kittens are fat little frogs.
Nicholas looks like he swallowed a tennis ball whole.
They went in for vaccines and weigh-ins on Tuesday, and Sarah, the foster care coordinator, was impressed with their progress! They're healthy and doing great.
This crew has been challenging to photograph because they always charge towards the camera once you point it at them. But finally, everyone sat still for a couple of moments, which was just long enough to get a few family portraits in!
It's nice to see them side-by-side and compare them all. They're coloring is obviously diverse, but they all seem to have the same round eyes and pouty mouths.
Gosh, they are adorable.
