The Kids Are All Right

The babies are doing so great. Everyone is happy and healthy. Davey's cold is history, and the girls are getting big! Patsy is well over two pounds, and teeny Noreen has only a few ounces to go.

You never know when you bring these tinies home what the future holds. They've needed a little more time than I had first anticipated, but every day that I have them is another day to love 'em up.

Due to a scheduling situation with surgeries at the shelter, they'll be here for another couple of weeks. (YAY!) It's better to get the kitties spayed and neutered that are living at the shelter. These little pumpkins can wait here with me for a while. No prob.

Well, Dang it All

You're just going to have to trust me that Iris was giving Patsy a very enthusiastic belly wash.

The rather obvious pose should be proof enough. They both decided to get all camera shy.

By the way, Davey is doing great. I'm giving him some extra time and will re-schedule his surgery for next week.

The Best Laid Plans, As it Were...

Davey's eyes were a little weepy when we left for the shelter this morning, and by the time the doc checked him over before surgery he'd developed a snuffly nose.  Good heavens.  They do this sometimes, these babies.  At the least opportune times.

So we'll wait another week or so for his kitty cold to run its course.  In the meantime, he's in good hands.

Take a Breather, Girls

I haven't had an opportunity to get many pix of the kids lately.  Life has been happening, so I've given the girls a little time off for good behavior. 

And Davey (sweet Davey) is having surgery tomorrow!  He'll be on the lookout for his family very soon. They haven't found us yet, but we know they're lurking out there on the hunt for a perfect orange boy.  

We don't mind the wait.

Cute as a Bug's Ear

I really wanted to say that she's cute as a bug's butt, but feared I might offend, so I didn't.

Don't be concerned about the curtains. They're cheaper than cheap and worth the cost for sheer entertainment value.

Please Make Room for Minnie

Poor, poor Minnie. She was so, so tired and only wanted to lie down with her Rosemary.  Not as easy as one might think.

The video is longer than I normally post, but I hope you make it to the end. I was a little surprised myself. ; )

Taken with my phone in poor lighting, but worth it, I think.

Patsy Wants to Show You Her Nose

Can you turn a little, honey? We can't quite see it.

Oh, yes. That's very nice.
Thank you, Patsy.

Skeeter Has a New Papa

Isn't this lovely?

She also has a mama and a 5-year-old kitty brother named Jack who is about to have his world disrupted a tad.

Oh, and Skeeter's new name is Jump!  So apropos - Jump and Jack!  It makes me smile.

Thank you Catrina and Jeff.  This girl is special among the specials and I couldn't be more pleased with her new family.  The right ones are always worth the wait.

Don't forget to write!  xoxo
