This Week in Kittens

The kittens are now five weeks old and all weigh a pound or more.  They’ve been developing so fast!  All of them are now using the litter box (and occasionally napping there).


They’re also getting into solid food (and I do mean that literally).

Everyone investigates.


The fort is fun to explore.

We also had our first case of forgetting to put your tongue back in your mouth, courtesy of Bran.


…You want a closeup of that one, don’t you?

I’ve given the kittens alternate names suitable for sharing with non-nerds.  L to R in this picture: Dodger (Rickon), Sara (Sansa, top), Freckle (Bran, bottom), Violet (Arya, top), and Robbie (Robb, bottom).  I’ll probably use the names more or less interchangeably here.
