In the interim, we decided that it was time for the kits to do a little more with their legs than just be in the bed, so we moved the big "fort" onto the floor and cut a door into it. The first one out of it and off exploring was my little girl!
The others followed suit:
In order to get them used to the idea of eating "out" we set up a miniature buffet for them:
They also got their nails properly clipped:
They still spend quite a bit of time in little kitten piles in their basket, though. Sometimes, it's hard to tell which limb belongs to whom!
As for me, dear friends, I am still eating five large meals a day but #1 tells me I look utterly gorgeous, and took a photo to prove it!
