A Loving Mother And Her Wee Ones

 I am happy to say that Momma kitty is doing SO much better!!!

 Mom is taking wonderful care of her babes and is on the up and up herself! She has been eating a ton the last few days and has gotten her milk back. I have been feeding the babies with a bottle a couple of times a day just to be sure they are getting enough milk and not exhausting momma too much, but lemme tell ya, this momma does not like her babies away from her. She is the most nurturing little lady ever. Whenever she hears a little one crying she immediately comes over to check things out and 'talk' to the baby. It's just darling!

 The babies are all plump and happy! They are starting to develop their own little personalities and have began to bat at each other in play. It's so cute watching them learn how to be kitties! I can't wait to see them bouncing around, chasing each other and playing with toys! It's coming soon!

 I have named Momma Daphne, although I have nicknames for the little ones, I have yet to officially name them since their personalities are just now showing. Once I get to know them a wee bit better, names will follow. I am sure my daughter Ember will have much opinion in naming them as usual. =)

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?? ;)
