6 weeks old

Digory- I keel you, rattly toy!

The kittens had a quiet day yesterday, after the excitement of the weekend. They've all had a weigh. The results, these days, are probably not entirely accurate, as they don't actually stay still and in the scales for long enough to get a dead- on result, but they will do for our purposes, after all what I want to see is that they are all making reasonable gains, which they are.

It's interesting (to me, because I am a nerd and quite like things like that) to see the trends in the litters. None of my kittens in this litter are heavier than my big boy from the last lot, Kurt (Bailey, as he is now) but there is a much smaller range of weights and as a result the average is significantly higher. The REM's were just kitten giants, I suspect hehe, I won't even try to compare to them!

I will, however, draw your attention to the fact that Caspian is now the third HEAVIEST in the litter, having overtaking ANOTHER two sisters in the past week. Sorry about that Lucy and Susan. Not bad going for the runt of the litter is it? But then Indigo was the runt, and she's a lovely big cat now, so birth weight isn't necessarily a huge determining factor. It seems strange to remember, when I see the lovely robust kitten he is now, that he was once only slightly heavier than a Mars Bar.

Today I am very much ignoring the fact they are 6 weeks old, and their time with me is almost half over- *sniff* So here are their stats :)
