What's Gotcha Down?

 Unfortunately, what was just a case of the sniffles and some daily eye goop has turned into quite a nasty little bug =( My momma has been feeling punkier each day. She is not wanting to eat a thing and has lost her milk. After seeing the doc yesterday the family is back home and I have had to step in and play momma to them myself. I am bottle feeding all five little ones and giving mom her meds, vitamins, and fluids. Keep your fingers crossed that they all are 'up and running' like new in no time.

 It is definately not an easy task to take on, caring for five 3 weeks old babies and a sick mom, but I have to admit that I enjoy watching their little ears wiggle in satisfaction when they get their bottle. There's nothing more sweet than a mini kitty relying on you to be it's mommy. Their adorable little faces and purrs definately make up for the lost sleep ;)

Mom seems a tiny bit happier this morning and I am hoping she will be back to her sweet natured little self soon. It's too bad I can't just put her in her comfiest  pjs and get her some good chocolate to make her better. I know it sure helps me ;)

On a brighter note, the babies had a few weeks of their momma's nurturing to give them a kick start in life and Im pretty confident they are strong enough to make it through this with a little help. Hopefully they will only need a couple of weeks of the bottle before they learn to chow on their own.
In the meantime, why not enjoy some outrageously adorable pics, whaddya say?? ;)

I've had a couple of mothers have their milk dry up. I'm still very grateful she's around because she does groom them and keep them warm and give them something to suckle on - even if it is just a pacifier.

I love floofy kittens.. they look like they are going to be stunners!!

So cute -- hope the mummy is recovering. Her babies certainly look happy and relaxed.
