    She seems like maybe she's a little more active now, too.

    You are doing a great job and she is progressing in the right direction. I found this great website (PEOPLE interviewed the Kitten Lady today & it should be on YouTube) and she has all kinds of great tips on kitten care. You might enjoy looking at it:

    Wow, I guess she is! I'm so used to weighing everthing in grams I sometimes forget what pounds are! And I just noticed, she's now twice her first weight! Here is a picture of her eyes. They are much better now, though the left one is still a little gooey.

    :loveeyes: She is so beautiful! And her boxy muzzle, round paws and large, triangular, tufty ears sure make her look like she had Maine Coon ancestry :lovecat:

    Have you been using terramycin on her eyes?

    Okay, start using it again so the other eye will clear up. :)

    I understand. Use it every day, twice a day, for 5 days. The eyes should be clear by then.

    Thanks everyone for your support and advice. Here is today's chart. It's a loss from yesterday, but still acceptable.

    A 20 gram loss? That's a lot.

    What caused that?

    It is a lot, and I would be worried if it was any less than 775. I think she hadn't pooped and peed yet, and I think she might have just eaten, cause her belly was huge when I weighed her.

    Just weighed her again, and she's 860 grams, but I suspect most of that weight is from the food she has eaten this morning.
