they're doing okay. white one - cupcake - is actually better. he cried some today, fought a little.. better than yesterday, when he only slept.
i'm getting the hang of the feeding thing. i finally sat down and did the calculations and planning, with the help of a scale. the calico and white cats weigh 10 and 8 ounces, respectively.
they are so helpless, they really don't go to the bathroom on their own. they wait until i rub their bellies with a wet cloth, simulating when mama would like them. today calico had her first poop that way. that was a, um, surprise! later, she had explosive diarrhea (literally explosive) but was kind enough to wait until i was there to get it all over my pants. :) i guess it's a good thing she could hold it, and it also says something good about the consistency that it was able to shoot such a distance.
the calico is actually a lot cuter than the white cat, but they're hard to get pictures of. i'll keep trying.
they love their grey teddy, which i bought for the last kittens i had here (their mama was grey). they lay all over this thing, snuggle with it, etc. it's very cute. they've been moved to the bathtub, so they're in a good, safe place now.
i have a long night ahead of me - feedings in a little while, again at 12:30, again at 4:30 (a.m.!), before work, at lunchtime.......
man, having kittens is sure a lot harder than fostering a mamacat.
we went shopping and stuff today. got a rain barrel (woo woo) and a plant. this three-day weekend went way too fast.
for the second weekend in a row, i had at least one day ruined by a migraine. i think i'll be making an appointment with the doctor this week to see if i can get some good drugs for this. saturday, i woke up really thirsty and feeling not so great, so i probably should have taken it easy, but i soon felt really good and wanted to jog, so went for a long run with sebastian on the beach. i felt good afterwards, thought i would be fine.. a couple hours later, i felt the first sign. the rest of the day, i was a mess. mostly because i'm tired of having the headaches. it finally went away between 7 and 8 yesterday morning, but has been more or less threatening ever since, so i've been far from myself. it sucks.
okay, that's all. time to shower and feed the kits and get some sleep!
