Their coloring is so amazing! Can those spines sting, or are they just sharp? And what are you feeding them?

I divided the cats into several group because I was worried I would not have enough to feed these little guys. So I chose pear, plum, birch and maple. They were all born within hours of each other but the ones raised on plum are growing much faster than the others. They are now more than 3 inches and incredible. They have been a lot of work but such a joy. Will post updated picture very soon
