He has grown quite a bit lately. Going to start preparing for shots and fixing both him and mama. I found a vet that does both payments and a special lower cost fee for first time visits. But is well known for treating their little patients well. And that's what I look for. Going to also chip them both and get them collars with my #/or email on it.

Glad to hear it, his eyes don't look fully dark, so I'm sure he has fairly good vision. I do see what you mean about his eyes being grey, possibly a bluish/green tint, similar to hazel? Very pretty though. Hope they stay that way.

if they change they change. He's an adorable butthead all the time. If I can ever get a GOOD pic they are slate grey no other color to them. But he wiggles and moves constantly.

Your little butthead ninja is adorable. 
   His eyes are amazing and I'd love to hear what your vet says about them when you get back from seeing them.  Honestly, he looks so unusual and it is a very pretty look.  It sound like he is growing up nicely and getting up to all the tricks a little kitten should which is fantastic.  Really happy to see how things are progressing and hope we continue to get updates -  and more photos.

thank you. I try and make sure he gets his food whenever he wake up and asks for it. I feed mama in the kitchen cuz she's a greedy cow. Snorkle her food as fast as she can and try and grab his cuz apparently his is better than hers... I think dry food I being phased out here tho... She will every so often nibble the gravity feeder... But as soon as she hears the POP she stands up like a prairie dog meows at me and I say come on you greedy cow its breakfast. She comes running. Meaning I have to act fact grab Thor place her food then put him in the living room where I will be sitting. Made a smaller cat box for him out of a disposable turkey pan. Shorter ledges easier for him to get over and placed it next to the big one. He had a few accidents but haven't had any recently (knock on wood). Patience and persistence wins the game.

Kitten litter tray is a good idea.  Hopefully he's got the idea of copying mum, and now he can get in without mountaineering he will get in there quick enough not to mess up.   (You might find you need a second little tray if your place is big though and he can't run fast enough to reach in time).

LoL, they do sound cute together even if mum does try to steal his food.

well he was thinking he can mess on whatever is lying on the floor. So I told Moe not to spank him. Just grab a bag pick up the poo put it in the smaller litter box grab him and set him in and make sure he smells his fresh mess. Then let him go and let him jump out. That way he knows where it is and where to keep going. Haven't had many more issues after that. Moe kept getting angry at him. I said you're getting angry for all the wrong reasons he doesn't realize what he is doing is wrong. You just have to correct him. Not punish. And they are cute together.

I am very glad you know not to punish him, just to show him where to go.  Cats usually learn very fast as they like to be clean.   

BTW, what colour are Navi's eyes?   Are they gray as well, or a pale green?   In one of the photos they look very similar to Thor's gray ones.

Sorry its been awhile. Navis eyes are yellow. His daddy's eyes are yellow too. But his sisters eyes turned out emerald green but the rest were yellow. His are still solid grey. He growing like a weed almost half Navis size now.

OMG you should see his daddy "Storm"... HUGE black cat.... Fricken gigantic... Navi is probably 1/4 storms size so you get an idea of daddy's size... Thor is still his usual grey blur butthead ninja kitten self... Unless he is hungry then he turns into the loudest under my feet thing in the world... Also I noticed the tiniest piece of the tip of his tail is exposed. Always thought something was caught in his fur but realized mommy woulda long cleaned it out. Its a small piece of vertebrae exposed...

Ha ha, I LOVE the sound of Thor.  And like Norachan says, look at the size of those paws, looks like he is going to be one massive blue shadow hunter.  I think you have got something seriously right with this kit' and he is blossoming.

No, its not a wound. Its been there forever. I thought it was a dry white something sticking out of the tip of his tail when I first got him. Just the tiniest bit. Thought it was litter maybe sticking to his fur and was like wtvr mama will get it or it will fall off. Then kept thinking wow he gets litter there alot. Then finally decided to investigate the phantom oddity. And it is a piece of his tail just never formed over with fur. Doesn't seem to bother him.

hunter is right. Turn a corner and I get attacked. No feet or toes are safe.... He used to fit in my shoes to attack us... Now he doesn't... But he has discovered burger king paper bags...
