Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Weekly Kitten Update--Week 2

But first a few photos of Butterfly, with her sleek (okay skinny) new figure. She really isn't looking too bad, just thin, and it's no wonder. She is such a good natured little thing.






Alright...here we go---kittens at about ten days.....
So cute...

One lucky little kitten gets to be an 'only' for a few minutes!

Eyes are now open on all of them, to varying degrees. They are much more active now. Sometimes they will be sitting and will stare at me owlishly out of their solemn little faces. Soon they will be tumbling and playing and Butterfly won't have one seconds peace.
The weighing process--most of the kittens are up to about 8 oz now, and are gaining steadily. Now that their eyes are open they won't be as agreeable being weighed!
If you are interested in a kitten, let me know. Most of these babies will need good, forever new homes. Butterfly is also available, but she would be available only to an indoor home. They will have their shots, wormings etc. and we are trying to pull funds together for them to be spayed or neutered. They will be ready for their homes sometime around the last of September.

Pretty darn adorable -- and how responsible to have them spayed/neutered!

Thanks! I'm very smitten with the kittens! I fear it's going to be hard to find good homes for them. Vicki--I just don't want to see them have to repeat what their little mom did. So many little stray cats out there...
