Let me start by giving weight updates. All the new measurements where taken on Sunday Aug 26 around noon, the measurements are about 48 hours from the previous. Kitten A 6.5 oz, Kitten B 5.5 oz, Kitten C 6.5 and Kitten D 6 oz. I was a bit worried about kitten C but last night and today I have found the secret to feeding him, you have to hold him flat on your lap and let him find the bottle, just like his momma's nipple. He really is fun to feed since he gets so excited about his food and talks to the bottle the during the entire feeding.
Now the exciting news, we have eyes!!! They started opening up this morning, I figure their eyes should be completely open by tomorrow. We now figure them to be anywhere from 9 to 12 days old, I really think that they are only 9 days.
We called the Emergency Vet Hospital over the weekend to double check on the babies progress. The staff there informed us that we are doing everything right and should end up with a healthy bunch of kitties. They told us that judging by the fact that some still had the cord attached and their eyes were closed that they were mostly likely only 2 or 3 days old when Scott found them. I am just so grateful that Scott found them.
They had a bath today. Since they are going potty on their own now, they tend to have "stuff" on them that just won't come off with a good wipe down. So I gave them a bath and then blow dried them, they are little fluff balls. They will have long hair.
It's feeding time, so I will update again in a couple of days.
