Day 4 for the “K” Litter. I’m still not committed on the genders. I have been a little distracted with one thing and another, but I decided to leap and designate names today:
Classic = Kabuki-san (3.5 oz/90 g)
Blue foot = Kemo Sabe (4.2 oz/120 g)
Pink foot = Kumquat (3.2 oz/90 g)
Plain foot = Kettle (4.0 oz/114 g)
Birth weights where (in ounces): 3.2, 3.2, 3.1, 3.1
Kemo Sabe and Kettle are little piglets and have gained quite a bit, however yesterday I grew very worried over Kumquat and gave her (him?) a little boost via tube feeding s/he had lost weight and they have so little to lose. the supplemental feeding *seemed* to do the trick and Kumquat was nursing strongly by bed time and gained 3 grams over night. I’m also watching Kabuki-san carefully as s/he gained only a tiny amount. Otherwise they certainly look good and are quite loud and vigorous. Sahara is eating well and only got into one fight this morning which was totally my fault. Once again I got involved with the computer and didn’t realize I’d left the door open for Sequoia to stick her little nose in. Poor Sequoia!
Here’s a couple of photos I managed this morning after weigh-in:
