Marshmallow has just turned three weeks old. Marshmallow, a newborn kitten, has developed new moves in comparison to a life of constant suckling and sleeping at the age of two weeks.
She began by practicing holding her head steady and focusing her teardrop eyes on you. Marshy was able to rest her tushy in a sit position after that. She then began standing on all fours, quickly gaining the strength in her limbs to begin walking.
At the same time, Marshy began to learn the art of self-grooming from her mama “Mochi.” Marshy appears to be sucking on her own “thumb” while sleeping on a couple of occasions. It’s really cute. Marshmallow is also getting used to spending time outside of the nest box.
Mama Mochi’s maternal instincts have grown stronger as Marshy has grown and developed, and she has become more responsive to her kitten’s needs. Marshy’s ears flap like wings when she suckles with all her might, which is a special treat we’ve noticed.
