Making a Bed Can Be Fun with Kittens in the House!

No longer are Mojo's six and a half week old kittens just sleeping and nursing. They make everyday events fun!

All three of them are eating solid foods, and seem to prefer the dry food to the moist, which surprised me. It won't be long until they are completely weaned.

Out Of the Closet... Mojo's Six Week Old Kittens

The kittens have out grown the closet and have now been making my bedroom and bathroom their new home. Occasionally they will make a mad dash out to the living room, but quickly return to their safe haven.

They are also all getting around very well. Running, jumping, stalking, pouncing, climbing, are all of some of their favorite things to do.

The black one, ("Mojo's Mini Me"), is always the first to do everything, and has already started eating wet food. I expect the other to follow suit soon.

Their eyes are starting to turn to their permanent colors, as they all start out with blue eyes.

The little grey one is the sweetest, and I call him "Lover Boy". The black and white one looks like she has on a white bib, so I named her "Bibs". She also has darling white little feet, as well as the grey tabby.

I've added to my sidebar The Kitten Rescue/Kittens Six to Seven Weeks. It says by the 7th week the kittens should be weaned, and I guess we are close to doing that. We'll see how the week goes.

Anyways, thanks for stopping by.

Sleeping Kittens

Just thought I'd post this sweet picture of the kittens sleeping.

Video of Mojo's 4 week Old Kittens

Saturday the 8th of July marks Mojo's kitten's 4 week old birthdays.

They sure have come a long way in such a short time.

Last week they couldn't get out of their box and now they can easily escape. So, I have removed the box from the closet and have laid out Mojo's blanket to cover the closet. I have barricaded the closet door opening with a huge suitcase, that Mojo can get over, but the kittens can't, yet.

I thought since the stripe one was larger than the other two, that he would be more outgoing and aggressive, but I was wrong. He is the shier of the three, and the black one is the most outgoing, with the black and white one a close second.

My new opinion is that the stripe one takes after his Dad who must be a larger frame cat than Mojo, and the other two take after her.

They are all so sweet.

Radio Station For Cats Launches Black Cat Adoption Month Campaign - Press Release

Radio Station For Cats Launches Black Cat Adoption Month Campaign - Press Release

July is Black Cat Adoption Month! Please read above story if you are in the market for a cat!

Mojo and Her Kittens on the Fourth of July

I brought the box out from the closet and placed it on the couch today, so I could begin to socialize the kittens into the household.

I tried to shoot some video of them there, but they turned out too dark. So, I took just a few flash shots as I didn't want to expose the kittens, to bright light, too much as recommended on the Kitten Rescue site, (see my sidebar).

I think Mojo looks stunning in her Designer Vera Red White and Blue scarf. I even think she enjoys wearing it as she has had it on for a couple of hours now, and hasn't tried to get it off yet.

While attempting to upload a short video of Mojo's kittens I came across this animation video of Edgar Allen Poe's "the Black Cat"

Kittens in a Basket

I gathered up the kittens, put them in a basket to take them to the front porch, so I could shoot them in natural light. None of them enjoyed it. Not even Mojo. I guess they are still too young, as all they did was meow. Sorry there is no sound, but I shot it with my digital camera, not a video camera.

YouTube Test: Black Cat Leash Training

Okay, so I want to add video to my blog, so while my batteries to my camera are charging, I'm attempting to add a video I took while Mojo had just became pregnant, and I was attempting to leash train her.

I hope it works.
