Here is our little Nora with August. This was in the car after we picked her up on our way to Wal-Mart to get her some kitten formula.
Trying to show hot teeny she is, here she is curled up in Adam's hand.
She spent her first few days sleeping in this little box, except for when she was being held, which is about 80% of the time. We were worried about her getting too cold without her mommy and we wanted to keep her next to our warm bodies. I made her a sock filled with uncooked rice (not pictured) to warm in the microwave, she loves it and cuddles right up next to it for her naps.
Here is little Julia holding the kitten on her first day with us.
Yesterday she really started wanting to explore more. She has outgrown her little shoe box already. She learned how to climb out of it and I decided it was no longer safe. She now is sleeping in a clothes basket with some warm blankets. She is teething and likes to gnaw on our fingers, a habit we will have to break before she bites hard enough to hurt. Her wobbly legs are getting stronger and we have let her explore a little more. Already, she is sleeping less and starting to act like a bigger kitten. Next week we are going to have to litter box train her and start to wean her from the bottle.
Isn't she darling? I was laughing with my husband the other day. I mentioned to him that when I was asking God to bless us with a new baby, this isn't exactly what I had in mind. Perhaps I should have prayed for a human baby?
