Our cat Chloe is weaning her kittens. She rarely nurses them. This morning they were pestering her, and she kept moving so they couldn't nurse. A few minutes later and I see her on the back of the couch, with Charlie hanging off the side of the couch and nursing. It was quite a sight! She as you may be able to tell, was not all that pleased. Her tail kept swishing back and forth impatiently. The kittens will be 8 weeks tomorrow. They eat food, drink water and are litter trained. They are ready to go to a good home.
