First Field Trip

The kittens are three-and-a-half weeks old.
We now have a routine for eating and sleeping. 
They are growing and beginning to interact with
 each other, as well as notice their surroundings.
So, they went on their first supervised field trip.
Photographing kittens is not an easy task, but
here is a sampling of their amazing adventure.

George tests his shaky little legs on the hard floor.

Bindi would rather see if I have a bottle.
Louis is watching, just in case I do.

George and Bindi get photobombed by Riley,
who is a very curious and busy little guy. 

Louis prefers to wait it out. He would rather just eat.

Riley is always on a mission. He loves attention.

The kittens have things to do and places to go;
just give them time and they will get there.
Their adventures are just beginning.

  1. OMC, they are just too precious! I can't even imagine the work, but so worth it. What little darlings. Derry and his siblings were found when they were 4 - 5 weeks old, so not much bigger. I'd loved to have seen him so tiny. :-)

    1. It truly is worth it. They are amazing. Constant motion when awake! And such strong wills! They are irresistible, though. I keep thinking back to Chloe Jo and Grizelda at two days old. Now look at them! That is what I want for these minions.

  2. Annie, this is so cute to share with us on a Thursday. The kittens are delightful and the two black ones are so black you can hardly make out their eyes.

    1. Thanks, Linda. I agree. Black cats are usually hard to capture in photos. Chloe Jo is the exception, because her eyes are so big and bright!

    1. We love puppies, too! ❤ There is not the need to rescue them as much as there is for kittens, at least here. Maybe someday we will learn how to prevent this orphaned critter issue. It starts with spay and neutering cats and dogs, as young as it is medically safe.

    1. Absolutely! We thought Chloe Jo would hate this. She loves them. They are "her" minions...she thinks. She cleans their faces and watches them eat. Maggie is observant and thoughtful, as always. Grizelda is amazed but a bit detached...too noisy for her.

      It really has a lot to do with your attitude. If you freak out, they will. If you include them and act like all is well...they are more comfortable with it.

  11. It seems like it's forever when you're feeding them every two hours, but once they start to grow and mature it happens so fast. Lovely little kittens.

    1. It will get easier as they become more active. This week they really started looking like kittens: upright ears, cutting teeth, legs underneath them. I am so proud of them for their will! ❤
