Well, Splat the kitten is growing up. She was two weeks old on Monday.

She started to open her eyes at around a week or ten days old, although she closed them again for this photo šŸ™‚

She is still in the nest with her mum, Blotchy, standing guard. The kitten’s eyes are open, but still in that bleary-eyed, early morning way.

She ventures out of the nest, but like the rabbit babies at this stage, she is crawling rather than walking, and stays very close to home. Blotchy is an incredibly devoted mum, being perfectly happy to lie in the nest with Splat all day.
