Kittens moult from fluffy baby coat at around 5 - 7 weeks, so either yours may be moulting for a second time or are a lot younger than you thought! (In my opinion, babies should not be homed before their first moult is pretty much completed.)
Ah, thank you – someone who knows about babies. :lol:

If they are that young then I'd possibly wait a couple weeks before introducing them to Fable. Generally it's recommended to hold off on intros until all parties are at least 8-10 weeks old just so that everyone is big enough to hold their own in a squabble.

ETA: Also, if they are indeed younger than advertised, I'd also double-check right now that they are as female as advertised...

Fondly remembering: Zephyr Delanynder the big floofy eejit (NLA28), Falere the contrary (NLA36), Mirala the best and finest (NLA36), Zephyr Opold the serene, and Rila the rodentist.

Haha they are definitely 11 weeks! They all seem to be getting dark lines down their backs- maybe my little girls are just growing too fast *cry cry* they are so adorable though <3 introductions start today! Wish us all luck!
