Ok. Wow. i made it back in less than a month. Well, just slightly less, but that's better than the last time, eh?
So, it's been a crazy few weeks with: Deb's health issues, travel postponed to MD, Deb turned 40 on May 25th, i turned 41 on May 28th and hey, we adopted two furdren just this past Monday. Whew! Busy, busy!
A young woman we know, Caitlin D., we will call her...posted a note on Facebook saying that a cat had delivered four kittens in her backyard 8 weeks prior and she was looking for a good home for them. I didn't say anything to Deb for a few days because i knew she would jump all over it, but then i couldn't stand it any more and was missing my little Luna kitty that we had to put to sleep in April 2008. As i suspected, Deb's reply was, "so when can we go get them?!" I sent a note back to Caitlin right away and we made the arrangements to go adopt this past Monday.
I decided on a mostly black female, she has about a nickel sized white spot on her neck. Deb decided on a peach/orange striped male. Brother and sister are doing well. As i write this they have just survived their first adventure into a mesh laundry bag full of clean clothes and are resting in their bed box...which, incidentally, they don't usually sleep in...they are more comfortable sleeping under one of the couches. Safer, i guess. Far away from Mama's grasp. Heehee!
They are still very scared and have only warmed up enough to get within maybe a foot of us and then they realize, "oh shit! too close" and scamper off. They are doing very well with the litter box and eating and drinking so i'm sure in time they will warm up to us and be just fine. they are quick little suckers so i only have a few pics and they are not so great...
