NICU is hard, but they do their job well! My oldest was in NICU for a week and turned out just fine, thinking positive makes a big difference. Sending good thoughts your way.

They should be eating kitten chow by May 5th, so I can bring them to POOPS if people want to adopt a free kitten.
None of our cats bother the chicks, juveniles, or full grown chickens. Every now and then a chick pops out of a brooder or grow-out pen in the barn, and the cats just watch as I scramble around trying to catch the escapee. I think the cats are entertained by my lack of agility. I have a few free range roosters doing bug patrol. When I open the barn in the morning, I often find one or more roosters snuggled with Thomas, our male cat. I'll have to start carrying my camera in the morning. I've missed too many great pictures because I'm unprepared.
I'd love to see a pic of a roo and tom cat :) Strange bedfellows. Okay well you guys have me convined the cats should be okay, so maybe I will be in the market for some barn cats. I think I'd be okay with the cat if it was female, but I've never met a true black cat that wasn't male. My black cat came out of a pure white cat, she had three whites and two blacks, both blacks were the males.
Ksane - I think I'm gonna need the number for that vet you know. I'm not saying no to taking him, but like I said I would feel bad taking him right now. I guess then again since you are so close, if he doesn't act right and thrive I could always reunite him with his sisters, hm?

I read in a book once that they are a food offering. They never see us eat cat food so they think we are starving. Not sure if there is any truth to it, but intersting to think about.
