Yup, Narnia is the theme for this litter. All seven of the books, not just the most famous, 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'. There are some most excellent boys names that it's a shame not to be able to use... but never mind. Like many older book series, there's quite an imbalance of male and female characters, usually to the male advantage, and Narnia is no exception!
But there's enough female names, so it's all good. We'll be meeting Kitten 1 tomorrow. Kitten 2, the little one who didn't make it, will be getting a name too.
There's no photos today. The light quality has been simply awful, and I haven't wanted to use the flash because... they are opening their eyes! Well some are. Some are totally shut, some have eyes cracked open, one has one eye fully open and the other fully shut... it is adorable.
They've been putting on weight like good-uns, these past few days especially, and Kitten 1 has doubled his birth weight. I expect several of his siblings to join him tomorrow. On average kittens double their birth weight in a week, at today's weigh in they were 6.5 days old, so y'know, they are doing pretty well. And Little Scrap has nearly overtaken his smallest sister weight wise. He probably will soon, boys tend to be heavier than girls, even when they start out small. I'd be very surprised if he stayed the lightest.
