This is my first collar, from when I was a tiny little kitten. See the way I shredded it? I am very rough on my collars. I like to scratch and paw at them, and spin them around.
This was my second collar. Fui had the same one in black for 2 years. Mine lasted a month before it became too difficult to do up.
Nearly three months ago, I got a PretaPawte collar. I posted about it here. Mum was getting one for Fui as his old collar was a bit rough on his neck, and thought she might as well get me one too. They were just too cute to turn down! Knowing my collar destroying history, mum was a little bit concerned at how long it would last, especially when she felt how light it was when it arrived.
After three months, this is what my collar looks like. The only bit of damage I have been able to do is a slight pull on the label. The collar itself looks nearly brand new. Mum is so happy with it!
At US$13.50 for a cat collar, it has been fantastic value. During a three month period earlier in the year, I lost or destroyed $40 worth of collars. Also, for each cat collar sold, they donate $1 to the Cat Protection Society, which is where the PretaPawte muse Alvin was adopted from. How cool is that!:)
The little babies are growing. Mum made some kitten slings for when she is moving around with them. Because of our Snugglesafe failure the other night, she put one in the baby box, and they all piled in to use it as a sleeping bag. It was very cute. It is lined in fleece, which reflects body heat.
The babies are very snuggley with each other. I am happy that Harry gets to have his siblings with him. I know how much I loved being reunited with my sibling.
Ron is a bit of a pesky kitten. When the other two are asleep, he will charge straight into them and wake them up. That is the cue for the screaming kitten chorus!
The babies eyes look about ready to open. They are still sealed, but have become quite dark. A few times now, mum and dad have thought there is a little kitten squinting at them. All three are now on bottles. Ron takes a while to start drinking, but looks to be developing quite a good suckling reflex.
Their co-ordination is coming ahead in leaps and bounds. Mum is quite amazed. These are very different kittens to Stella's babies. Mum realises now just how bad the situation was with them. She knows it sounds a bit silly, but likes to think that these three are the three babies who passed away, back for a second chance.
We hope you have a wonderful healthy week:)
