Here he was at just over 2 weeks.
At 6 weeks.
Then at 7 weeks.
And here …
… is Baxter!! We brought him home last night and have been fascinated watching him explore his new surroundings. He’s a blue/silver with white tabby Maine Coon kitten who is now 10 weeks and 2 days old.
He is unbelievably tiny, only about 2.5 pounds, but he purrs like a big kitty already! After we got home with him, the evening seemed to be nothing but watching Baxter and watching Smudge watching Baxter. It’s going to be so much fun watching the little guy grow and grow. It can take 3 or 4 years for a Maine Coon to reach their full size, which can go as high as 25 pounds, so we’re in for some fun watching the changes.
Smudge is interested. When we got home, we let Baxter out of the carrier and watched as Smudge immediately came over to sniff Baxter. There was no hostility on Smudge’s part at all. In fact, he seemed rather bored by the whole thing. Was really interested in the kitten food, though.
And now my blog feels normal again. Two kitty pictures to post each day instead of just one.
Smudge says it feels more normal around here already!
