Simba is getting big!

I took these pics this morning. Simon is being a good big brother. He grooms Simba and they play together. Simba is now weaned! YAY! He's been eating food and drinking water on his own since Monday!

Great News!

Just a quick post to let you know that Simba tested negative for feline leukemia, and feline AIDS! YAY! He can play with my other boys and I don't have to worry! His stool sample also came back negative! No worms, or any other nasties! It's a very happy day!

I haven't heard about his sibling. When I go over to the nail salon (where he was found in the parking lot) adjacent to the New York Sports Club, the girl that took him (from the NYSC) isn't there at work. I haven't been able to talk to her. I pray for the best....

A Name? And Lots More Pics

It's been a few days since I updated pics of the baby, so here's a boat load!

He's getting so big! (Well that's relative, of course.) The first pics are of Simon and his new baby brother. Simon really likes him and I think they are going to be an awesome pair. Simon wants to groom him, but I can't let him do it yet. I haven't had the baby tested yet for feline luk, so I can't chance it. He goes tomorrow for his blood test. Keep your fingers crossed that this little boy is disease free. I think his name will be Simba. I personally like Spike better, but DH and just about anyone else that's heard the name Spike doesn't like it. I guess I'm voted down. Doesn't seem fair since I'm the one with less than 10 hours sleep in the last month! He is more alert now. He wants to play whenever he's awake. He attacks his little stuffed doggie every chance he gets. He's Mommy's little cutie pie.

Goblin Tree Page Finish! (And Baby Pics)

First up some stitching for a change. I finally finished page 11 on Goblin Tree - Happy Dances all around! I finished it Saturday night. Didn't have a lot of stitching time this weekend, DH took Thurs. and Fri. off from work and he kept me busy, then his sister, her family, and his Mother came for a visit yesterday. It was a beautiful day here in the north east for a change, so much time was spent in the pool and grilling.

Here's some pics of the baby from this morning.

He is doing well. We are up to 4 hours between feedings now.

First Trip to the Vet

We went to the vet for the very first time yesterday. She said he's doing great! I must be doing something right. He's now exactly 1 pound. He's still too small to do bloodwork, we'll have to wait another 2 weeks for that. He's started his fourth week of life yesterday. I beleive he's 'out of the woods' now, and it will be smooth sailing from now on.

Doing Well

Sorry to keep you in suspense over the last couple of days. Here's some new pictures of baby boy from yesterday, July 2, 2009.
He's growing so much every day. I don't know if you can tell from the pics but he's twice the size he was 2 weeks ago. He's eating about half a bottle of formula every 3 hours now.
I've gotten quite a few great name suggestions, thank you to those of you that commented. Still haven't decided on one yet. Here's the suggestions so far:
Sweeney, Spike, Sebastian, Stewart, Syd, Sam, Stan, Sal, Sam, Stanley, Sunny, Sammy, Smidge, Salvador, Selik, Superman, and Sadi.
I like Sadi, it means fortunate/lucky in arabic, but I think it might be to hard to pronounce. And Selik which means Blessed, but same problem with that one. I have to think on it some more. I'm just calling him 'Mommy's little baby' for now.
