I Found a Newborn Kitten | Day 15

Hello everyone!

I didn’t think I’d get the chance to take decent photos of Kuro this quick! I’m glad I did.

Today, Kuro proved that my initial impression of him was wrong. He was really playful and eager to get out of the box which is currently their home. Because of that, I was able to take clearer shots of him.

Kuro was able to steal most of my attention today (about damn time!) but that doesn’t mean I forgot about Fluff!

They really wanted to get out of the box and explore today. They were relentless in trying to climb the box walls (without success, of course). I got them out for a while then put them back in. I really don’t know what’s best for them at this point, keep them in or let them out and then set the box in a way so they can go back inside it on their own. They’re in the rooftop of a building not in the street so that’s good but still. So far, I’m playing it safe keeping them in until they’re older or someone with experience tells me what I should do.

 

I Found a Newborn Kitten | Day ~14

Hello again everyone! It’s been almost ten days since the last post in this series in which I promised to try and write it daily… It looks like I failed!

I did keep checking on the kittens though (missed a couple of days) although didn’t take photos regularly.

Fluff and Kuro are doing great! Fluff’s patterns are becoming more distinguished and detailed and I love it. Kuro being kuro (black) is cool in how black cats are cool! ( yup, that’s a solid argument for me! Black cats are cool. period.) Here’s the thing, I didn’t always think so.

Where I come from, the elders always tell us black cats belong to the Jinn* so naturally I grew up being scared of black cats. Obviously, it’s superstition but the idea was ingrained in me until I grew old enough to know better. Right now, Kuro is helping me completely erase that idea from the back of my head. I just hope I can take better shots of him. I could always pick him up and arrange a shot running the risk of disturbing them and I don’t want that. The moment will come on its own and it will be worth the wait. Photos like that mean much more to me.

Oh here’s another good photo of the mom.
