Busy, Busy, Busy!

Welcome back - here you see me taking some time to "stop and smell the roses"- well in my case its grass. With busy, busy kittens its hard to take anytime for yourself. Five weeks have flown by - the kittens are growing quickly. They becoming fierce (but lovable) little tigers with nice lynx tips on their ears and longer, fluffier coats. They are also much more mobile - they spent the afternoon in the living room (a first!!), climbing and wrestling. They even took time out from their play to help the typist on the laptop.
That's Ali on the keyboard and Sasha's face and Toni's leg in the little house I brought with me from Finland.

Ali is still the largest by 20 gms but they are all over 700 grams. They all have discovered raw food and attack their Feline Future chicken with a vengeance. Overall they still prefer Mom's milk bar as you can see below.

The kittens are also living up to the Murlyka Cattery name. Murlyka is from the Russian to purr. The cattery was named because of our amazing and constant purrs: Anya - a beautiful trilling and chirping purr; - my deep and masculine rumble: our two buddies - Prekrasne Daniela- for her steady motor and Tazmin-who purrs loudly and constantly. The kittens now purr when snuggled in their bed, when petted and of course when eating at Mom's.

This is Toni -Surveying the world from her Finnish Cat house. She's also very meticulous-you often catch her washing her hands!

Ali is often the first to go on new adventures! On the left you see her running out to see what's new and below watching a spider climb up the wall.

Sasha is a tough little guy who's also ready for anything.

He and his sisters wrestle all the time.

Sasha has the upper paw.
Then Toni makes a counter move. This is all very important practice to become great hunters like Anya and myself.

The kittens' eye color is changing from generic kitten color to what will be their adult color. We are hoping that all three kittens have beautiful green eyes like their mother but time will tell. What color do you think Ali's eyes will be?

This was a rather long post but I had lots of news to share. Hope you enjoyed the latest update. Please share any comments. Bye for now.

Catching up on sleep!

Hi! As you can see I'm catching up on sleep. As anyone with a newborn can tell you - sleep is a hard-to- come -by commodity! Anya tells me she has even less opportunity for sleep - so I decided I can help out by sleeping for both of us! That's just the kind of thoughtful guy I am.

Anya tells me though its much harder to sleep with 3 little ones checking out your every move!

Newest pictures

The kittens are interacting with each other and the big, big world.

Three Weeks and on the Move!

Welcome Back!
Its been a good week for hunting - Here you see me checking out the yard for grasshoppers. But my best hunting has been in the Lion's Den (my outdoor cage). I caught my second mouse there last night!

Well I know you'd rather hear about the kittens. They are still growing - all over 500 gms and they on the move.

All this movement doesn't make their mother Anya very happy - she still likes them best cuddled up in the corner and she's always trying to corral them back home.
Here are their latest pictures. That's Ali on the left and Toni on the right as they toddle out to see the world.

Below is Sasha who stayed at home to keep Mom happy.

They are starting to show their own little personalities. All delightful of course! Right now they are bit more like their mom - a little bit cautious - but I'm sure by next week they be taking after their dad - ready for anything!

Bye for now.

Two weeks and a day!

Hi - I'm with my friend Lia (she's the Typist's niece). Her brother Dominic took the picture. They came to visit for a few days - which was great - I got lots of attention!!!

Enough about me. I know you're all here for a long overdue kitten update. The kittens have tripled their birthweight and are well on their way to quadrupling it! They also have had their eyes open for a couple of days. Their markings are becoming more distinct every day. Check out their pictures!

This is Sasha at one week and below is Sasha at 2 weeks. Seems like we're having some technical difficulties - the rest of the pictures will be in the next post.
