Mingo is still the biggest and most handsome of the three kittens. He actually weighs three pounds He is a seal point Siamese. Mingo isn't quite as cuddly as the other two, but maybe he will mellow out as he gets older.

|Moxie without the flash|
The little girl kitten, Moxie, just weighs a little over two pounds, so that makes her the smallest of the three. She likes to climb up Mom's leg or jump on Mom's shoulders. Also she likes to sit in Mom's lap and fall asleep.
Moxie is a torti point Siamese. It's very hard to get good pictures of her because right before the flash goes off, she closes her eyes. Either that, or she looks kind of grumpy. But she's not really a grumpy kitten. She just looks that way in flash pictures.

so that he could be a snowshoe bunny!
A couple of weeks ago, the kittens got the sniffles, so they had to take some pink antibiotic stuff for 10 days. They are all better now, which is good, because they wouldn't be able to get their surgery if they were still sick.

The other thing that's going on with Latifa is that she got some x-rays taken on Friday. The reason for this was because when Latifa jumps up on things, she sometimes doesn't make it and she falls off. Or else she gets up there, but she lands with three feet and then brings her right hind leg up afterwards. Mom told Aunt Tania about this, and they agreed that it would be nice to know what was going on, so they could tell anybody who wanted to adopt Latifa.
In the meantime, she is not letting it slow her down at all, because she is always jumping into every weird place in the house. I think she is wasting way too much energy with all this exploring and jumping and snooping. But nobody asked me, so I guess I will just shut up about it -- for now.
