The kittens are 2 1/2 weeks old and are pushing 400 g now. Eyes and ears are open, but they are now in the mastering gravity phase. They don’t stand all the way up and walk unsteadily. Yesterday we heard our first purr, and one seems to have a severe case of wanderlust: he crawls away on his own. The queen is taking excellent care of her four kits, and I must say that I look forward to coming home from work, grabbing a kitten and kissing it. Nothing lowers the blood pressure like a basket full of kittens.
