Clementine and Blitz

I found these two 9 days ago abandoned in a field. The vet guessed them to be no more than 6 weeks, probably closer to 5 weeks when they were checked out on Monday, so they're probably around the 6 week mark now. They're being treated for worms, but thankfully their blood tests came back negative. Clem is the little tortie, at least I think that's what she'd be? But any idea what to call Blitz? The hair starts black, then goes silver, then black on the tips. Clem weighed in at a whopping 15oz at the vet, and Blitz is noticeably larger at 1lb 4oz. Also, any idea what their coat length will be as adults?

Holy cow. Little Clem could almost be a clone to our Alice. Both of those kittens are going to be over the top GORGEOUS. Blitz could turn into a very regal looking boy.


Here is a pic of Alice. Notice the orange lines that run about her face...

No kidding. If they are already this gorgeous, imagine how stunning they will be when they are older. I'm in such awe of their beauty! Aren't YOU lucky! Those kittens will be long haired, and their fur looks extremely thick in the pics.. it almost looks to me like they have a double coat.

Excuse me while I go find a field to walk into so that I, too, can stumble upon insanely gorgeous kittens.

They are fluffy little things. Beautiful. congrats on the new family members.

I would say blitz has fever coat by the look of it. If it is he will grow out of the coloring eventually so take a lot of pics now lol. But with that coat there is a chance he may end up with a Smoke color.

Fever coat is what I was thinking originally, but he has classic tabby markings. Would that appear if it was just a fever coat?

Beautiful kittens. Have you checked the local lost and found to see if someone could be missing them?

I think the one with the fever coat will be a long haired all black cat similar to Marie's Cleo.

No one is missing them for sure. There were five of them there, but by the time I walked up the road to take my dog home and grab a carrier and get back I could only find these two. It looked like they had *just* been dropped off next to the dumpster, and they smelled of cigarette smoke.
What is a good weight gain per week at this age? I thought Clem was 15oz but it was 14oz, and now six days later she's exactly 1lb, so 2oz, and Blitz gained 3.5oz from 1lb 4oz to 1lb 7.5oz. Good?
