I really think the little kittens compete to see who can scream louder! I’m not even kidding 🙂

Andouille – scream.

Chorizo – Screeeam.

Boudin – SCREAMM.

Pepperoni – SCREEEEEEAAAAM!!!

I think Pepperoni wins every time :). And she finally opened her eyes…hehe.

And Juno and Otto are the quiet ones. When they’re together you can really see how small Juno is compared to her brother. Juno isn’t really doing that great. She’s not growing and is about half the size of her brother. I’m hoping she’s just a little stunted and will hit a growth spurt here any time now….

have 4 new bottle babies. They were dumped at another vet clinic and ended up with me. They are about 10 days old and doing great! They are so so so adorable. I named them after types of sausage.

Boudin – a little tabby manx and the only male of the group

Pepperoni – very vocal black and white female

Chorizo – all black female

And an update from my big litter…

Otto is growing and growing and doing great!

Juno is about half the size of Otto. She has me alittle worried. She had a really bad day yesterday and I thought I was going to lose her. But she’s eating well and active and seems strong now….so hopefully she’s just petite.

I definately have my hands full!!

RIP Rolo

Rolo didn’t make it. He put up a good fight.

RIP little boy.

I think he has Cerebral or Cerebellar Hypoplasia, but I really can’t be sure at this point. He was originally doing great…..but he had what I thought was a hypoglycemic episode. He pulled through it just fine, the started having them more frequently. He then began to have constant convulsion.

I took a video of what he was doing last night. (Warning – Hard To Watch).

I was considering euthanizing him this morning. But when morning came he was much better. He is still eating great and eliminating normally. With the advice of some good friends I have supplimented his formula with Karo and electrolytes.

Rolo Today:

This little guy’s going to have a long road ahead of him. We’ll see what time brings. I hope he can have a normal, pain-free, happy life.

Here are some videos of kittens and adult cats with the same disorder. I they survive through kittenhood, the can lead a normal, healthy life…

Gordon: From kitten to adult….

Rocky: 21 years old…..

Tumbles: “Hunting…..”

These give me hope for him……

The other two, Juno and Otto, are doing great! They’re little monsters, in fact.

Juno is the smallest of the three….the only little girl

Rolo is the quietest of the 3 and his eyes are still closed….

So far they’re all doing great! 🙂

I took her and Jak to Petsmart today and they had a great time 🙂

Day 8: RIP Hefty

Hefty went downhill today and wasn’t able to pull through. It was very sudden.

He found is purr box today.

He died curled up on my chest purring his little head off.

I’m sorry little man 😦
