Hello Kitty

S'mai bawb:

After a week of careful observation, I have come to the conclusion that there is no Euki under all that fluff. She's simply one of Custard's hairballs

Filbert seems to have set a new Kitten Academy for quickest adoption. He's scheduled to leave for his new home on Monday after under a fortnight at the Academy. Of course, at about six months of age, he's probably also setting a record for the oldest kitten to be adopted from Kitten Academy.

Ta ra 'wan,

Filbert might be both (he's a handsome boy), but there was, oddly enough, a short discussion a few days ago on Discord about oldest kitten. Given we only have estimates for the most recent class, some questions were directed at Mr. A and DJ about past students that returned to OAW before adopters were found.

It's been awhile, but Mr. A mentioned one of the Textiles remained at OAW for a long time after graduation. He didn't mention age at adoption, but I got a distinct impression we were well into later classes before that kitten found a forever home.

In other news, I believe Tahini is due to leave today. I haven't been watching the stream or been on Discord the past few days, so I don't have any info on any of the others... other than Hummas, Baba, and Tahini have been free to mingle with the faculty for several days now and that the boys continue their mischievous ways.

Hopefully that means the URI is finally going away. Euki's had some trouble shaking that particular nuisance.

S'mai bawb:

Euki was on today's closeup stream. Mr. A described her as being rather "feisty" at the vet and was trying to take her travel case apart on the way home. However, she seems to have settled down once back at the Academy. Who'd of thought that a little fuzzball could have so much fight in her.

Euki's age may be part of the reason why this URI is hanging on. I'm not a vet (and don't even play one on TV), but my guess is that cat immune systems probably take a little time to develop. Further, as she's not getting mother's milk, she may not be getting any immune system help.

The four kittens in the Annex also went to the vet today. The vet said that for two of them, the fever is gone and that it was probably a reaction to the vaccinations. So that's also some good news.

Finally, Filbert went off to his new home. Mr. A said on the closeup that Filbert was a bit shy around the adopters, but he seems such a friendly cat that he'll warm up to his adopters in no time.

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan ab Arthur

A few tidbits of news on this evening's kitten closeup
  1. HUMMUS IS ADOPTED - HURRAH!
  2. Crabapple is adopted but will probably stay at KA until the end of the month
  3. Tests revealed the diseases that have been effecting Euki, and Mr. A says that they're treatable. She is going on a new antibiotic to treat the one disease (whose name I don't remember).
  4. Maggie will not release the mouse toy (see picture above) come hell or high water

Ta ra 'wan,

Maggie and Euki are sisters in spirit, at least.

Hello Kitty

S'mai bawb:

On last night's kitten closeup, Maggie had the mouse toy while Mr. A had the stick. Maggie then proceeded to pull Mr. A all over the classroom.

That is definitely Maggie's toy.

I guess Sass isn't getting equal access to the mouse toy.

Bonsai Kitten

S'mai bawb:

I was watching the kitten closeup this evening and Euki was sounding a lot better. The new medicine seems to be really helping her breathing. The issue isn't gone by a long shot, but it's definitely improved.

Both glad and sad to see Hummus go, but it sounds like his new home has a few cats so that he can blow off all that Purrsian energy.

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan ab Arthur

Hello Kitty Hannah Bananah

S'mai bawb:

It looks like KA now has one more member of the Cat Tree family. When the Trees first came to KA, one of the kittens was thought to be feral and was sent to be raised by On Angels' Wings. It turns out that the kitten wasn't feral and did belong with the Trees. So this afternoon, Hannah was brought back to KA to link up with the rest of her clan. She's a black kitten, but with long fur (as opposed to the short black fur of Crabapple, Larch, and Juniper). She's a little shy but Mr. A says that she'll come around.

Finally, in order to adapt her name to the pattern used by the rest of the Cat Trees, she's now known as "Hannah Banana"

Ta ra 'wan,

Euki and Elder re-enact a scene from James Cameron's Titanic.
