    They are 3 weeks today! Are they all around 12 ounces? They should each weigh about one pound in another week when they are one month.

    If you feel comfortable that they are where they should be you can stop daily weighing. :)

    Did you weigh every 24 hours up until that point? I'm having to use a bowl as they will just move too much

    Yes 3 weeks it's gone so fast! Only one is just under 12 ounces but she is the runt all the others are over.

    Yes, most of us have had to use a bowl eventually! They sound good to go.

    Maybe weigh them every 3 days until they learn to eat solids. You still want to make sure no one falls behind.

    Yes I think I may check every 2 to 3 days to be safe. They are all trying to walk on all fours now and all playing with each other which is so lovely to watch. Mum sits abd wonders why they are suddenly mobile and cat like! I never realised how hard this all was plus 3 kids 2 dogs and work it's never ending but very rewarding to see them grow

    So kittens are now 4 weeks and 2 days old. All are doing great but none of them are interested in eating or using a litter tray and mum is still stimulating them to go toilet?

    They are a tad on the young side still. Most kittens are more ready at a full 5 weeks, and even 6 weeks for some.

    Give it another week! :)

    Ok will leave it another week, at the moment they seem to be having more fun walking in their food and water bowls than trying what is it there!
    When they can they be flead? Have been combing them every day the moment and mum has been flead already.

    The black one seems to be changing colour and has lots of specks of white all over her legs! Have never seen this is in an all black cat.

    They are precious!

    They can be treated for fleas at 5 weeks with Advantage II for kittens. :)

    New update :) Have seen 3 out of 4 kittens eating solid food and drinking water!
    I always put wet and dry food down however they seem to only want to eat the dry food is that ok?
    They are 5 weeks tomorrow and all becoming little escape artists and have gotten out of the play pen when left open so we are bringing them and mum downstairs tomorrow so they have more room :)

    It all sounds good! Be sure to kitten proof whatever room they will be in. :)

    Looks like baby fuzz. He may very well grow out of it.
    They are all adorable
