24x7 Kitten Cam! Broadcasting Quality Foster Kittens since 2011 for Purrfect Pals in Washington State, USA
Siblings: They aren't a possibility until Lizzie is 7 weeks old and able to be viral tested. It's dangerous to bring other kittens in or send her to another litter just for the simple fact of having siblings. The colostrum that mama cats can produce prior to milk to kick start their immune systems can cause false positives on the viral tests.
Weaning & Weight gains/losses: Shelby is currently weaning her kitten which means she will occasionally bop Lizzie on the head, bunny kick her when Lizzie tries to nurse, growl, hiss, etc. Lizzie isn't being harmed. Weight losses are common during the weaning process because a full kitten has no incentive to switch to kibble.
Lizzie is apparently completely healthy and has been gaining weight almost every day of her life. She is currently transitioning to solid foods so she may urp some up from time to time. Her instincts are strong and she's crazy smart and has good problem solving skills even at 2 weeks old when she figured out how to climb over the fence before she could really even walk well. She has started peeing & pooping on her own and litter box training has begun.
Shelby (estimated 2 years old) was abandoned just prior to giving birth to her previous litter who are now around three months old. A good Samaritan noticed her and kept her fed while she took care of her kittens. When the kittens were older, they trapped Shelby & her kittens, taking them to the Everett Animal Shelter and from there she came to Purrfect Pals. She and several of her kittens were placed in a foster home until it was time for their spay & neuters. At Shelby's spay appointment, it was realized that she was pregnant and plans were set in motion to transfer her into my care. Her previous litter is under socialized and have been sent to Charm School.
A quick ultrasound confirmed her pregnancy with 3-5 kittens at approximately 30 days gestation. Gestation is between 60 & 70 days.

Be advised that this is REAL LIFE, uncensored. You will experience most of the fostering experience which will include sick kittens. And poop. Seriously, kittens can produce an amazing amount of poop! Hopefully, it'll be in the litter box.
Concerning Trolls: Ignore them. That's what they hate the most. Their goal is to upset you so you yell at them. They think this is funny. Do nothing to acknowledge their existence.
