There are usually three kittens who get an extra private dining experience with Mommy Lori. If a kitten lost weight, or did not gain weight, they get 3 or 4 sessions with mom away from the little fatties. Mulder ALWAYS gets extra feedings because he/she weighs the least and is gaining more slowly than any of the others. Right this minute, Mulder, Kurt & Harriot are getting an extra breakfast. I keep a chart for the kitty weights and at the moment Natasha weighs 15.25 oz. and Mulder weighs 7.25. I use my kitchen scale and a small basket to weigh each kid every morning. They do not enjoy the experience.
I make sure Mulder gets mom all to herself once a day so she has no competition for food. I also make sure Lori gets a special treat for taking time out of her busy day to do all these feedings. This morning she got 3 sardines before she fed her tiny one.
We were worried about our little adopted kitten because she was super skinny and gaining verrrrry slowly, but I think she’s out of the woods now. I guess you can tell which one is my favorite. 🙂
Two more neighbors came by to meet the little puff balls.
I’m afraid Buford and Pork Chop would make a tasty snack out of Natasha.
And this one wouldn’t even be an appetizer!
