I think Billy is weaned

I think Billy White Shoes is pretty well weaned.  He still complains once in a while, like he is hungry.  But when I feed him, he only eats a little, and seems more interested in the cuddling and sucking on the mouthpiece than he does in actually eating.  I have some kitten glop left, and I'll offer it to him when he seems to want it, but beyond that, I think I can figure Billy has yet another milepost toward becoming a big kittie.

He's started climbing into bed with me at night, which is kind of a mixed blessing.  On one hand, it is nice having him cuddling with me.  On the other, he's still so small, I'm almost scared to fall asleep when he is cuddled under my arm.  I got folds in the covers that are bigger than he is.  It can also be a bit disconcerting to wake up at 3AM because Billy & Grace O'Malley are play-fighting on my stomach.

The photos are not very good today.  Billy was feeling more frisky than usual.  I finally decided "that was what I got, live with it".

One quick video of Billy eating some of the dry food.  I give him canned stuff with the rest of the crew, but I haven't seen him eating that yet.

The last photo shows him so startled, he startled me! Sometimes you have to go with the shorts they let you take.

I think the photos are awesome!!

I'd like to tell you not to worry about him in bed with you as kittens have an instinct to not be layed on because of the whole "living in a small den with mom and siblings" but we all know worry often has nothing to do with logic and reason :) I'm sure I'd worry about it for a few more weeks :)

Yes, all 4 of us poodins at Forty Paws are siblings. Same mother, obviously different fathers. That's why we all turned 10 today!
