Poor babies, they are far too young to be away from their mother. Kittens should be at least 10-12 weeks before adoption.
They are domestics or moggies.
Both very cute, I would keep your male away from them until they are healthy. Hopefully you can get them vet checked in the next few days and that the eye infection clears up
yes that was what I did, put them in my bathroom with separate food and bed and litter, locked away fm the male cat:) introduction takes time, slowly slowly not rushing, under my supervision:)
yes im going to see the vet monday morn.

Oh dear they are sooo young. What happened to the mother? They need to be with her as they will still depend on her for nourishment....poor mama cat and poor wee tykes. Any chance of getting the mum cat to be with them.
They will take a lot of work to rear them -at least 4 to 5 feeds a day of special food for kittens - do not give them cows milk as it will give them diarrhoeh.
They are domestics and they are of the colour pattern - tortie and white and the
darker one is tabby and white.
Please keep them totally away from your own cat as you have no idea what diseases they can be incubating and they need to be kept seperate until they are vaccnated at around 8 or 9 weeks. He will be stressed to have his territory invaded by two small kittens...introductionz should be slowly.....and patiently not just bringing them together.
It is important to not cause friction or get the relationship off to a bad start - cats have long memories.
for the advice, Ive been reading a lot of info fm this forum
and Im taking it slowly, don't know what happen to the mother, this is like passing fm one person to another and a friend of mine knows that Im looking for another cat, told me about these moggies lol so i just couldn't resist to bring them home, my teenage daughter washed them and cleaned them and I can see that they're quite playful and already toilet trained:)
Ive given them whiskas lactose free milk plus and kitty wet and dry food. :lug:
again for all yr wonderful help and advices.
