Chantaris Kittens - 3 weeks old - belated update!

Chantaris Aurora Sinistra
named after the Professor of Astonomy at
Hogwarts. She has her head in the clouds!

Chantaris Salazar Slytherin
Named after the Co-Founder of Hogwarts.
He's bossy!

Chantaris Armando Dippet
Named after a one-time Headmaster of
Hogwarts. He's bossy!

Chantaris Poppy Pomfrey
Named after Hogwarts School Nurse - she's
a true carer!

Chantaris Horace Slughorn
Named after the Potions Professor at Hogwarts.
His name is apt he's a 'hungry' Horace!

Well, the kittens were 3 weeks old on Friday 22 October - and so we have new photos of them. Its difficult to get them to stay still! They are all doing really well - they did have a Vet Health check last week - and the Vet is very happy with all of them and with Darya - who had of course gained a lot of weight prior to the birth - but has kept her condition really well, and is heavier now than she was and is looking pretty good considering she is caring for these 5 hooligans! Right now - weights are between 424 and 550 grams - the smallest two being the girls, but they are still a good size/weight - and we are more than happy with their development.

We are still deciding on names - not easy - but hopefully although they have their little 'nicknames' they will have their 'proper' names very, very soon!

So - here are some photos -

More Photos ................

Chantaris kittens - 2 weeks old - and Photo Debut!

Well, here they are - 2 weeks old - and their Blog debut - Birth weights were all very similar, 90-98 gr. Now - at 2 weeks old, we have all kittens between 300 and 360 grams. So - we are very happy with their progress, and very proud of Mum, Darya - who has been absolutely fabulous with her babies -

Here they are - will hope to update the photos on a weekly basis - providing we can keep them still for long enough!

Thanks to everyone for their best wishes, its always lovely to hear from ALL of you.
