Foster kittens!

I run a small feral cat rescue and this cat was a stray who ran into a freinds house and had her babies there. That was litter #1 for her, and they were born in march.

She got pregnant again shortly after and was moved to my house before they were born. This is Leda and her adorable babies, they are 2 weeks old.

Kitten 1:

Kitten 2:

Kitten 3:

Kitten 4:


Leda:


I hopefully have a home for Leda, the kittens shouldn't be hard to adopt out when they're 8 weeks...they've just started playing with each other and it so funny!

Also, any one know how to sex kittens at this age? I have a few guesses but I'm not sure...

Anyways, i hope you like the pics!

Boys are a dot (pooper) and a space (testicles) just above another dot pee-er).
Girls are a dot (pooper) right above a dash (pee-er). Looks like an upside down exclamation mark.

They are CUTE!

That's funny because that one is a little tiger It's the one who likes to hiss at me the most. It's so funny when they hiss...adorable!

Leda is the sweetest cat I've ever met! My two girls are friendly with me, and Doran is cuddly, but Leda just loves everyone! I can't understand why someone would abandon her the poor girl.

I need to sex them so i can start naming them...even though i'm not keeping them i still need to name them!

Right, so the tabby is a male, one of the grey ones is a female...the other two i really have no idea. I'll have to keep checking.

Another question though, is it normal for kitten fur to be kinda kinky? It's not curly, but it's sure not straight either. The black kitten and one of the grey kittens has distinctly kinked fur. The other two it's harder to tell, it's reduced but still there. I'm wondering because the last kitten I raised (Doran, who is now 9 wks) never had kinks in the fur that I recall...and neither does mum. I'm just wondering if I'm missing something.

Also, how do I know mum has enough milk for them? She's eating like a horse, Natural Balance, about 2-3 times more than my other girls eat a day. I just want to make sure they're getting enough milk.

Name suggestions are welcome, but no guarantees, lol. Besides, chances are the adoptive families will change them..*shrugs* They're still mine for 6 weeks!
