Day 33 - 6/26/08

6 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weight: 1 lb 7.2 oz - No new weight to report because no scale available

Feedings: Every 6 hours

Food: KMR 2nd Step mixed with KMR Formula mixed with a miniscule amount of Iams Wet Kitten Food. Too much is too much of a change and he won't eat.

Stimulation: No longer need this category!!!

I cannot believe it, but Lord Dudley is 6 weeks old today. If he had been with his mother this whole time (instead of me) she would be getting ready to leave him. We had a cat when we were young that had kittens under our front porch and 6 weeks to the day she carefully moved all the kittens up to the porch and left without looking back. We never saw the mother again.

Dudley when he is awake is very active. We put him down in the second floor hallway and he will follow me up and down the hallway. When I get too far ahead he will run and he looks like a little black and white jack rabbit hopping down the hall. I wish we had a video recorder so I could record it and post because he is so funny. What he really likes to do is run down the hall charging towards the top of the stairs just to give me a heart attack. You'd be surprised how fast the little guy can go. He is a real dare devil. While we are at my parents he has to be up high on a table most of the time because there are canines just waiting on the floor to eat him. At least three of four times he has just walked off the edge of the kitchen table. It's bad enough that the table is at least 3 feet high however, the kitchen floor is stone tile.

What Dudley really likes is to be near me all the time which is great for my ego. So much so that when I am working he really wants to sit on the computer. Mary Beth and I instant message with Microsoft Messenger during the day and frequently she will get unintelligible messages from Dudley. I am sure he knows what he is trying to tell her but we haven't figured out his code yet.

I can't wait til we get home to weigh him. It will be over a week in between weigh ins and I am guessing he will be over 2 lbs.

Here is his 6 week portrait. Notice how light his eyes are getting. I was hoping (though I was pretty sure he wouldn't) he would keep those deep blue eyes.

He is just beautiful!

It's so sweet of Dudley to help you type. My son helps me sometimes, and my cats do too. Lovely..

He looks so alert now and interested in everything going on around him.

"I'm a real live boy" (in the words of pinochio) He looks like a real kitty now- not just a little ball of fluff! He is so adorable!!!
