As you can see from the picture, all kittens are comfortable eating solid food, both canned and dry, now. Well, Prima isn't in this picture, but take my word on it that she is too. They have a strong need to be: in less than two weeks, Lies will be spayed, and all kittens will be forcibly weaned. I find this rather cruel, and checked the timeline three times with our vet. Each time he assured me that seven weeks is definitely spaying and weaning time. Poor Lies, poor kittens!
Today Tertius's new people visited him. He really seemed to like them, or at least their laps, which is a big thing, cat-wise. I'm glad he did, and feel confident that he's found himself an excellent home.
I also went through my collection of kitten pictures taken, and realized it grows at a speed of about a hunderd a week. When they leave our home, I'll burn a 700MB CDROM chock-full of high-resolution photos (2048x1536), and make copies for the new people of Prima, Tertius, and Quarta. I only have a dozen good pictures of Juul and Piet
when they were kittens, and I really cherish those. Having a thousand handy on a CDROM must be heaven!
