All Five Fellows

DSC_4226

Honestly, I can't believe how well our Five Fellows are doing today. They in came hissing and spitting a week ago. They had upper respiratory infections, and three had goopy eyes. The eye ointment and antibiotics seem to have cleared everything up, and they are no longer showing any symptoms of their ailments.

Today dear little Oakley did not hiss his morning greeting, instead, I got a few tiny purrs.  They were so quiet I had to touch a finger to his throat to feel for vibrations, but they were, indeed, purrs.

We're still taking it slow with them, and their world is kind of small right now. They have their wire kennel and exercise yard, and I think they feel comfortable in their space. They aren't trying at all to escape, so until they start pushing their boundaries, well keep things small for them.

I'm so proud of these little dudes and all of their progress. They still have their scaredy-kitten moments, and it doesn't too loud of a sound to send them scrambling, but they've figured out that we humans are trustworthy.

It's been so wonderful watching them let go of their fears and turn into sweet peas!

  2. My, my, you all are very handsome Fellows! Robin still looks like he is only 80% sure this is a good place. Wish I wasn't across the country because we could cuddle up!

  6. I'm sure you already know this -- it is extremely unusual for a male to be calico. To be calico, they need two X chromosomes. The rare male -- human or feline -- may possibly have one Y and two X chromosomes, but it's really not usual. In humans Wikipedia says it's 4 or 5 individuals in 100,000.) Wondering if Robin is a girl....

    1. He's not a calico, he's tabby and white.

  10. The way all five Fellows clump together is the sweetest thing. Brothers in arms has never been so adorable.

  11. It would probably be the ultimate challenge of your kitten wrangling skills, but I'd love a photo of them in "official Fellows scale of scaredy-kitty" order from bravest to most timid. From your descriptions I think Emmet is bravest and Robin is most timid.

  12. Oh, my, what a work in progress! Getting the bros to sit for a pic must have been a challenge. Purrfectly kittenish.

  13. What bunch of cute! :-D
    Is there a problem with one of Robin's eyes? It looks so much smaller.

    1. He's fine! They had runny eyes because of their URIs, and his right eye was still a little winky in those photos.
