Took Baby Clawdia for shots BUT.....

she's too little to get any! The vet said looking at her size and her teeth she is at the most 5 weeks old and that is too little to get shots. They did deworm her and we are doing the fecal test to check for parasites etc. She's also too little to test for FIV or leukemia so we have to wait. They said to come back in 3 to 4 weeks and we can start the kitten shots.

She seems to miss her mommy, she likes to curl up in my hair and Orions hair and is having a little trouble eatting the dry kitten food. We have been giving her lots of warm milk and soft foods. We also started introducing her to the other animals in the house as the vet said it would be ok since they are all up to date on their shots, her favorite seems to be Merlin who has taken to her quite nicely. Even though he's a boy he seems to have taken on a maternal role, my guess is that her mommy was a long hair as Merlin is a long hair and again she does like to nuzzle into my hair a lot. Here's a photo I snapped today, Merlin was washing Clawdia, they were curled up together on the couch and it was too cute not to capture.
