Default Feeding time!

Feeding Phoebe's kittens is getting difficult as they are now four weeks old
and can hop in and out of their box at will - fortunately I have four
different colours so can tell which one is which except for the three
lilac's who all look the same (and they are all boy's).

They hear me coming at feeding time and set up this god almighty
meowwwwwwww - feed me first!! as I settle down to begin feeding - pick up
first one, wrap up in towel, use tissue as bib - then six more climb up me
yowling, my turn, my turn, they get right up to where the kitten I am
feeding is and *try* to push him out of the way, licking the drops from
around the kittens face and obstructing my view so I can't see what is going
on. I do have a routine - feed the three seal (brown) ones first - then the
two chocolates - followed by the two blues and last is the three lilac's -
we get there in the end and using the syringe is making things so much
easier - I am trying to get them to eat out of a plate - don't want them to
think that food only comes from a syringe!!!!

Over the last couple of days some of them have gotten into the litter tray
and done wee's - yesterday we had our first kitten pooh in the tray (thought
you needed to know that!!)

Both Freya's and Gigi's kittens continue to thrive - Freya's one will be
getting out of their box by the weekend. Gigi's one are just opening their
eyes.

Looking forward to Bev coming back out she will sure notice the difference
in them.

That is great news Lois. Your house must be very noisy at the moment

Don't dress them the same. I _hate_ it when parents dress twins/triplets
the same.

The U.S. Government is in the
peculiar position of toppling foreign
governments in the name of democracy.

Oh, how democractic!

Sounds like mayhem. Happy but mayhem, you've got your hands full.
