Kittens are doing pretty well. I noticed a couple with crusty eye yesterday and cleaned them up. The voice in the back of my head is warning me this could be the first sign of trouble, but I'm trying to stay positive. Little Amos - who has no eyes - somehow managed to have one ... erm... socket? get crusty, and the other had a drop of liquid. No idea what's going on there, or if I should be concerned. So I treated him the same as the other kittens, holding a warm wet towel to his crusty eye until the crusty went away. I'm tempted to call the vet and ask about what they can do for a kitten without eyes. I assume his eyelids will eventually have to be sewn together to prevent infection. Right now he just looks like his eyes are closed, except they're sunken in. To a normal person I'm sure he just looks like his eyes are closed, but I had a one-eyed cat growing up so I know what a missing eye looks like. Anyway, part of me wants to call the vet and ask, but the other part of me knows that his odds of survival are slim at best and chances are that he'll never make it to his first vet appointment anyway. That thought breaks my heart. I adore little Amos. Maybe I'll call just to ask when Zombie will be safe to have her tooth and spay surgery, since she had Amos just 9 days ago.
I have noticed Floki joining in on nursing time a lot more lately. For a while there I was only seeing Zombie nursing.
I've got an order put together for a new seed company I haven't used before. I'm going to wait until the big seed trade package comes back in January to place my order though so I don't end up buying something that I could be getting in the swap.
Tony has this weekend off, so on Saturday he is going to take the kids to town and entertain them for a while so I can wrap all the Christmas gifts. Should be a nice quiet day.
