Minion Moments

The Minions are growing by the minute. They are two-and-a-half weeks old, now. We have been busy establishing a schedule for their health needs. It is simple but very necessary for their well-being. 

They are kept in a crate with a heating pad. About every three hours they are bottle fed kitten "milk replacer". The kittens are so young that Mom (that would be "me", now) has to help them eliminate (go potty) and then clean them up. After that, they are worn out from crying, eating, and eliminating. So they all pile-up and drift off to Dreamland...until it is time to do it all over again.

The minions do have names, now. Louis (Armstrong) and Riley (BB King) love to sing, so are named after two of my very favourites. George (Thorogood), though not "Bad to the Bone", does do things his own way. Bindi is the only "little girl", and that is what her name means.





I will post updates and pictures as I can, but please be patient. The minions are not very impressed with cameras. They much prefer bottles. Right now, it is all about keeping them happy (and healthy).

Meet the Minions

The orphaned kittens have arrived! They are almost two weeks old.

These two guys are almost twins,

but this is the squeaky wheel.

We think this may be the Boss.

This one is definitely the Princess.

Please excuse the quality of these first pictures. 
We have not decided on names, yet, but we will.
We always name our fosters, because they deserve it.
Right now, we are establishing a routine. It is a constant cycle 
of sleeping & bottle feeding, with the occasional "poop-fest".
Bless their hearts.
