Dirty kittens get cuter despite themselves



I've shipped two kittens off to Angie to bottle-feed. Four was too many for my busy morning, especially given how messy they are. Sticking a bottle in the mouth of a kitten who knows how to work one isn't too big a deal. But tacking on four kitten baths was just too much. I have taken to separating the two remaining kittens at night, with their own separate heating pads, to keep them from slurping all over one another by morning. The rest of the day I can keep them occupied together so they are either eating, exploring, or sleeping. They are both still stained from chewing on one another. I've never run into this before. I've certainly had kittens that have sucked on one another, but not ones that made such a mess.

I'm so jealous of your kittens, and wish I was nearby so you could ship them to me. I haven't had any kittens come my way in almost TWO YEARS! We're still talking about moving, still talking about your neck of the woods... maybe one day I'll come knocking on your door, asking, "Can the bottle-babies come out and play with me?"
