Pearls and Dreams
God did not mean for kittens to be only children.
They are meant to be at least twins, if not triplets or above.
Betsy is round, and still very shakey, and barely walking. She's over two weeks old now. She's doing better at holding her head up. My husband was very concerned. I had to remind him that, most kittens rough house and play with their siblings ...working their muscles, and developing necessary muscles. She, on the other hand, only has herself to play with ...not very stimulating.
Top that off with a mamma cat who is determined to keep her newborn ... she's at a severe disadvantage! She starts to walk away and Sugarfoot reaches out and plops a paw on her! Today, I caught Sugarfoot SITTING ON HER! I do see her wrestling to get out of Sugarfoot's paws at times. Poor baby :)
We're making a concerted effort every day, inspite of Sugarfoots protests, to make sure she gets some crawl time and play time.
Any suggestions for helping an only kitten develop would be more than welcome so this roly poly cow ..er kitten can develop into a cat rather than roly poly something or other.
