Floki's kittens are a week old now. I gender checked them today - the blue and white, and the buff and white (we've been calling Butterbeer) are girls, while the ginger and white (Ginger Bear), the lesser marked buff and white, and the Rex coated kittens are all boys. Zombie's kitten (Amos) is a boy. They're all doing well. Butterbeer and the Rex kitten are starting to open their eyes already.
Today we got up to 42 degrees! From the forecast it doesn't look like we will be getting any snow between now and Christmas, so we'll be having a brown Christmas. Not really the end of the world. Perhaps a sign of a milder winter to come. We can hope anyway!
I took advantage of the warmer weather to dump out the kiddie pool and refill it with fresh water. The ducks and chickens (and geese and guineas) seemed to approve of the decision.
