Fright

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.

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.
