Both Sequoia and Jitterbug continue to do very well. Jitterbug made a large leap in weight overnight and is now 106 grams. I think it’s taken a bit of time for Sequoia’s milk to come completely in. I supplemented Jitterbug with the bottle a little yesterday, but think I can stop that if all continues well. Sequoia isn’t eating as much as I’m used to seeing queens eat, but then she only has one extra mouth to feed. Usually a nursing queen is ravenous all the time.
There was some discussion the other day about the ‘milk’ names I choose and I said I’d see if I had any of my old lists hanging around as it might be fun to see them. I had back through the “G”s … I always have far more names than I have kittens, obviously, and then often have to jettison a strong contender because it’s for the wrong gender. You can imagine what I had to give up for the all boy “G” litter! Not all the names listed were seriously considered — I just start jotting them down as I think of them, then go back later and choose my favorites — and, of course, if someone else has already *suggested* it to me, I have to remove it – LOL – well, not always.
