Big Developments!

The little Hogwarts kittens have made some big moves forward in their development in the last couple of days. They are a lot more active now. At lunchtime yesterday, mum realised Ron was looking back at her through a tiny slit in his right eye. At dinnertime, Harry's right eye also opened the tiniest of little bits.
When mum was doing their 0230 feed this morning, she noticed Hermione also has a tiny opening in her right eye! Isn't it amazing how each of them started opening their right eye first? Harry and Hermione's eyes are both opening very slowly.
Ron on the other hand is trying to set the eye opening record! This was him tonight, less than 36 hours after mum first noticed the tiniest opening! Both eyes are nearly opened all the way!
He looks like a real little boykitten now. We also took these short videos of each kitten. They are a lot more aware now. The quality isn't very good, as mum is not using any flash and weak lighting while their eyes are just opening, but you get an idea:)

The first one is Harry.
This is Hermione.
And this is Ron!
We are really starting to feel like we're getting close to the edge of the woods with the kittens now. Today they moved out of their little kitten box into the big crate, to give them more space to practice their toddeling. They are also developing a real affection for a triceratops soft toy that mum put in there with a heat pad to snuggle with. It is very cute!:) It's so exciting watching them grow and get stronger!:)

We LOVED the videos! That Harry is very hungry, isn't he! Hermione seems to be doing some pretty good almost-walking and Ron is just the kyootest! Thank you for these!

How exciting! That's so cool you get to see the kittens' first moments of seeing the world. Your mom is great to sacrifice her sleep so the kittens can have full tummies in the middle of the night. We're so glad they are making such progress.
