As mentioned a few posts ago, the kittens are mostly now starting to show an interest in solid food.
So far, all the kittens but Susan have tried solids. Caspian was first, followed by Lucy and Digory, Aravis and Jadis joined in the next day but neither are too bothered about it. Jewel has had a lick or two but then loses interest and Susan would rather be tortured on the rack, if you believe her screams when placed near the plate!

I love the squeals they make when eating!

Both the boys have tried kibble too, in fact Caspian has his own method here...

It's all change this week. Caspian is no longer the smallest. I wonder if, when Jewel decides solid food is for her, she'll take over her brother again, or whether Little Scrap is little no more? You can definitely tell who is most into their solids. Milk-only-thanks Susan is still the biggest, but not by quite so much, and now Lucy, who is a big solids eater is second, weight wise.

It's odd to think my biggest Narnian is almost the same size as my smallest REM. Hope seemed so tiny, and Susan so very big and sturdy (she is, she's a lovely kitten) But when I look at the chart I see my Narnians are average sized kittens (here) pretty much spot on actually. I don't think I had appreciated just how big my REM's were. I thought they were normal!  I wish I could go back and tell my new-breeder self to stop worrying about Hope, she was a perfectly good size, bang on average if not slightly bigger than average... it's just her brothers were giants!!
