I kind of miss them just hanging out with me upstairs tbh. In kitten news, Minka has made it to the highest cat shelf in the office. Her brother, not as agile, still hasn’t figured out how to get on top of the scratching post. Both babies ventured to the highest cat shelf in the bedroom last night & slept there. It used to be Henry’s spot, but he ceded it to Theodora & all newcomers. catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishstraight scottishfold cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Rufus Tips Himself Over I was selfishly hoping that would happen! Not to brag but I had THREE cats on the bed this morning. The two kittens exploded onto the bed around 7:30, thus disturbing Sir, who'd been sharing my pillow all night.manduka romance catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishstraight scottishfold cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

My beautiful little mama, N. Theodora Felisia. In spite of how much extra work it is to contain her exuberant heats, it’s still going to be a bit of a pang getting her spayed this spring. nomorekittens catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Minka is my first lap cat after my original feline, the only non Scottish of the bunch, Mooshi. She scaled my jeans first & then Ruru followed. He’s exploring the desk now. Was on my shoulder for a bit. lapcat catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Rowdy mode. Rufus is going to be too big for the kitchen scale pretty quick. He was nearly 2 3/4lbs this morning at 8 weeks & 5 days. playtime catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Rufus is already half the size of Theodora! When he’s in play mode he thunders around. On kitten paws! It is too funny. catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

My first girl, Bella, is eight months old. She’d have been an excellent breeding cat I bet! 😂 nice to get updates. catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Kittens playing on the stairs. I contained them above the landing bc they are still prone to "stop & poop" if not watched carefully & I didn't want them roaming wildly. catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

My girl has figured out how to get on top of the scratcher herself! She’s not big enough to jump from the plyo box like Theodora yet but can get over the overhang in the back, where it’s smaller. She wants to be close by where I am ❤️❤️❤️ catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Day 49  Rufus & Minka Both of these kittens started eating plain kibble on their own, without any coercion, whereas my first litter could never be BRIBED to do that. Why? I think it's down to the difference in the way I nurtured their mom after she gave birth. I had to INTUIT how to take care of an extremely "fussy to the point of catorexic" eater. They are both super adorable & FUZZY. They don't have their mother's sleek, silky, glossy coat. Between her unique, dramatic patterning and coat texture, she was a bit of a show stopper. The babies are not going to show however, not unless circumstances between now & March - when they'd need to be registered - change super, duper dramatically.catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Christmas cats! I made it through like six minutes of carols. Festivities were pretty much limited to dinner last night, but the complicated roast recipe turned out great! No consumer stuff is going on.. I’m going to celebrate tonight’s new moon 🌙 in Capricorn with a longer than usual meditation, focused on manifestation. catlady catmom catwhisperer binauralbeats witch scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Hyper mode! Playtime’s getting longer!! Think I might have to coral the little family in the bathroom a night or two. Zzz catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Minka Moo in the Tube. Theodora’s back in heat during literally the darkest days of the year in a region noted for its gothic gloom. But she’ll be spayed soon enough. I’m planning early April. catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Hobbies include hanging out on messy hallway with cats. (The kitten litter box is currently occupying the space where my ratty shoes normally live.) catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Evening num nums - low sodium sardines packed in water. It’s a great dietary supplement for kitties. catlady catmom catwhisperer smacking scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx.

I’d put my stack of clean laundry in the hall last night so no one would poop on it. Today I’m letting the kittens have the run of the hall and... (Their climbing abilities are improving.) laundry catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Kitten playtime. I can’t imagine what it’s like having 7 or even 5! Two has been it for my short breeding “career”. catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Proud mama let me know it was time for some fresh air & I immediately agreed. She’s so gorgeous. I’m so happy I figured out how to keep her from getting too skinny while nursing. catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Got a 2min clip up on my playlist for litter 2. I’ve hardly done any longer videos this time! S’ok. selfie catlady catmom catwhisperer scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdxhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIXSiQQ80gQ

Went to check on the kitties just now & discovered Rufus has started eating kibble! Amazing. I’m not sure why, and it wasn’t for lack of effort, but I couldn’t get either of the first litter to eat dry food. catlady catmom scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

They like to lick these green stones on the dresser, but Rufus is like, “Hey!” (Bop to head) “Play with me!” catlady catmom scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Kittens have progressed to 2nd level of cat tree & playing on the dresser / altar. They’ve even tried climbing Krishna! That’s a new one. catlady catmom scottishfold krishna scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Toilet training victory! Neither kitten is eating food yet. I've gotten Minka to lick a tiny bit of wet food off my finger after feeding Theo, but so far that's it. However she is peeing in the litter box regularly, and started off that way out of pure instinct. She hasn't been sick since I changed out the litter for paper scraps I confetti by hand either. (It's artisanal cat litter). I sprinkle a bit of cat attract in there... Right after she used the box again & was showered with praise, she went to stalk her brother who had run off to the corner where he had a messy, runny, disgusting poop early in morning. It was how I started my day, lol. I ran right over there, guessing he had to go as well. Put him in the box. It took about 5/10min to persuade him I wasn't going to let him leave until he did his business. Victory! I'm betting he'll have a few more accidents before it sinks in but this is a step in the right directioncatlady catmom scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Not to brag, but I got Minka to pee in the box today! She just started peeing & pooping without her brother last night, around 3am. And I discovered she makes a hell of a lot of anxious noise before doing so. I'd gotten up & tried to assess why she was carrying & then smelled it. Gave her a quick wipe but then this morning I discovered she had a hard lump of poo cemented in her bum hair. First time into the sink with you, kitten! I was a bit annoyed with Theodora for not taking care of that. Anyway was working a project this afternoon when Minka started vocalizing in much the same way. "Mew! Mew! Mew-mew-mew-mew MEW!" I stopped what I was doing, looked at her closely,  noted the body language, went & got the junior litterbox, put her in it & spoke soothingly, while nudging her gently against hopping out. She peed!!! Many congratulations followed. Rufus isn't there yet. Hopefully his sister's advance alert warning system will make her easy to train & he'll learn by example.catlady catmom scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens pottytraining torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Minka is SO much more active than her brother! Here she manages to get away from mom to launch herself outta the nest. catlady catmom scottishfold cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens newborn torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Kittens are attempting to roughhouse today! I’m just hanging out in my pajamas with a couple kittens on my bed. Been making video clips here & there. Perhaps I’ll make a YouTube compilation later. Dunno. catlady catmom scottishfold scottishstraight cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens newborn torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

They’re not really awake right now, so here’s a little clip of Minka from yesterday. She’s experiencing a moment of awareness! catlady catmom scottishfold cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens newborn torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

At it’s looking like he’ll be a Fold and she’ll be a Straight. catlady catmom scottishfold cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens newborn torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Last litter I started a YouTube playlist on day 2, lol. This doesn’t mean the new babies are getting any less attention!!! They are large! I haven’t been as diligent with daily weigh-ins with this litter, beyond the most fragile first two weeks, for a couple reasons. First I can see they’re growing and now I know form experience that if you’ve only got two kittens and the mom is getting good nutrition, they are unlikely to be less than giant, no matter the size of mom. Second I have a tiny digital scale which is fairly accurate but they’re already too big to balance on it. By the kitchen scale, he’s a pound today and she’s fourteen ounces. She was propelling herself outside the bed before her eyes even opened. They will be getting more and more mobile in the next couple weeks. I use cardboard to give them safe, “mom can relax” roaming room. It’ll be an ever changing landscape in the “cat land” end of the hall for a couple months, while they grow. Stay tuned to see whether they turn out to be Scottish Folds or Straights! The ears will fold or not at about four weeks old. catlady catmom scottishfold cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens newborn torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx

Sir Henry on his brick 🧱. It’s not significantly dryer than the leaves but... he really DOES put one in mind of the recently departed grumpycat catlady catmom scottishfold cat catslovers catsofinstagram pdx kittens newborn torbie ntheodorafelesia ntheodorafelisia pdx
