That picture in the top left must have been when they told her that they'd be bringing in five more kittens for her to watch over...

Hello Kitty First Batch Off For Graduation Ceremonies

S'mai bawb:

On Monday, the first batch of the kitten chaos crew will be off for their "graduation ceremonies." Roux, Chili, Pinto, Coriander, Cayenne and Mr. Pickles will be going to the vet for spaying/neutering, chipping and shots.

I guess we're getting closer to the time when the current batch of kittens will be off to their new homes.

Ta ra 'wan,

I'm not sure what the timing is based on the following re-tweet, but apparently Roux is back already:




(Take note of the very different cat tree dismounts of Cro and Claire--Cro is more careful, but Claire is fearless and really happy to see momma!)

Hello Kitty

According to last night's kitten close up, Roux was still rather woozy. Chili seemed to be fine - nothing seems to phase her. The four kittens were dozing the anesthetic off in cat carriers. I suspect that Roux was put back in with her kittens later last night.

Yes, Claire and Cro seem to have different views on occupational kitten safety. I've seen a few video tweets where Claire just takes the short way down. Cro, on the other hand, would rather take it slow and steady. I think that Claire and Cro's adopter are going to to get quite a handful in Claire.

Ta ra 'wan,

Claire reminds me of my Iris, who is indeed a handful.

Iris likes to use the top of the (flat-screen) TV as a launching pad to leap onto the top of the china cabinets. I secured the base of the TV with heavy-duty velcro, but it's still nervewracking to watch her do it.

Default Claire Despenser

S'mai bawb:

Here's a tweet from about a week ago of Claire making a rather sudden vertical appearance. She certainly doesn't wait for the elevator.

Pinto and Mr. Pickles waved goodbye today and have gone to their new homes.

Congratulations on graduating, and I wish you both well!

Hello Kitty

Yes, the members of the current class are starting to move to their new homes. Mr. Pickle's adoption was a bit of a surprise. Apparently someone came into Angel's Wings on Monday, saw Mr. Pickle recovering from his neutering, and decided to put in adoption papers for him on the spot.

According to last night's kitten closeup, Cory was supposed to go with Pinto, but the vet advised against Cory travelling due to his URI. The current plan is for someone from Angel's Wings (or even DJ) to take Cory to his adopter in Connecticut next week. Home to home kitten delivery - now that's service

With Garbanzo and Tomato having their graduation visit to the vet today, I wonder who's the next kitten to head out to a new home.

Ta ra 'wan,

Watching Cro negotiate the big cat tree is like watching an old black and white silent comedy!

It is very reminiscent of Harold Lloyd in the famous clock scene from Safety Last!

ETA: Cro even does the over-the-shoulder look.

Cayenne and Chili are getting adooted (it's adooted for KA graduates, thanks to a typo Mr. A made some time ago) today!

And Coriander has pneumonia! Just a bit of wet lungs, and he isn't very ill yet and still likes to eat and run and play, but still, that URI is just not going away and now this.

There is already another mom-cat and kittens at OAW (she gave birth right after arriving there!), but Mr A said last night on the Close-Up that they're not ready to take them yet since this as yet largest class ever is just now starting to get adopted out. And, of course, that lingering URI is making them wary of bringing in newborns.

As per TGG's post, Cori is getting some special treatment to help with his pneumonia.




Nothing like a little steam to clear out the old pipes (for both Cori and Mr. A).

The new batch I mentioned a few posts back that's currently waiting at On Angels awings is a Siamese mom cat and four kittens! They could be here as soon as this weekend if everyone's adopted out on time.

According to a tweet by Cari Wells from At Angel's Wings, momcat's name is "Sanibel" (or "Belle" for short).
