Little kittens this young need lots of care, but less than you would think. They need to be fed every 2-3 hours, but I have found I can get them to sleep all night, even at this age, if I do it right. The formula seems to be to fill their tummies up right at my bedtime, make sure they have a warm heating pad to keep them warm, and they will sleep till I wake them in the morning. Yippee!
Duffy is no exception, and actually sleeps most of the time, only waking up if he is hungry. So we are getting along fabulous. In this photo he is almost a week old, and fell asleep after feeding him with a bottle. Not being fussy, he just fell asleep in my nice warm hand. Smart kitty!
His eyes are still closed, and won't open until between 7-10 days old. When they do, they will be a dark blue color. We won't know what his permanent eye color will be until he is between 5-6 weeks old.
