Look Who’s Looking at You

06 May

These kittens are opening their eyes bit by bit.  Those near-sighted-looking, soft blue eyes are so gentle and adorable.  These little ones are doing great and I’m sure they are enjoying seeing the world for the first time.

All three photos above, by the way, are of the same kitten.  Aren’t his markings amazing?  He looks sort of like an ocelot or a leopard.

Of course, not everyone develops at the same rate, and the most of these little ones are still working at getting those eyes open.  This little guy below has such a sweet crooning cry.  He always sounds like he’s lost his voice, and his meows are soft and kind of hoarse.

Funny how the kitten above and this orange one below have almost the exact same pose.

Every litter, it seems, has it’s endearing little ugly duckling.  I believe this is the one.  Trust me, he’s much cuter these past two days as his eyes are now fully open.  He’s a charming little guy with the softest little voice.

Those tiny feet, a total size of about a pea, are so delicate and pink.  Can you tell I’m crazy about these little ones?

And just in case you want to see more of these little ones, here’s a more recent video I took.  Notice how very small and weak they still are…this poor orange tabby has quite a time, as you’ll see.  The moms always guide the little ones back to safety though.  Yes, the moms are sharing their little cozy box and their little cozy family very well.  It’s amazing.  Don’t worry, the all gray one (twitching throughout the video) is just fine.  Dreaming, probably. 🙂  Enjoy.

    Jenna, that first kitty has to be the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen! I’ve never seen a cat with those kind of markings before, wonder what it’ll look like when it’s grown? 🙂

      Hi Donna. I’m so happy you like that little kitty. He may end up a house cat here, as I love his markings too. I wonder too what he’ll look like when he’s all grown up. Thanks for the comment.

    Ooooh…they are too cute ! It’s beautiful to see the two families together all cuddled up and I love to hear them purr. It was so cute to see the kitten yawning, and he (or she ?) seem to be a little more adventurous than the others ! The kitten in the first 3 photos is beautiful, he has great markings, he will become a very beautiful cat for sure ! The less beautiful one has a nice hair colour, he’s much paler than the others, I like the tones of grey and cream.
    What will you do with all the kittens, will you keep them ?

      Thank you so much for the very kind comments, Jocelyne! I’m so happy you enjoy seeing them grow and play. The one yawning is a female, as almost all calico cats are. She is adventurous and likes to play. Already, the kittens are much more grown up than they are here in this post. Well, I think we’ll be keeping the kittens. The original reason the cats ended up here was for mice control, and so, the more cats we have, the fewer mice we’ll have. However, one of them just may have to end up a house cat. 🙂

      Thanks for the kind comments.
