New Kittens- They've arrived!

I'm picking up the little babies this evening. There has been much excitement over their arrival already! Me and the BF did some spring cleaning and reorganization in preparation for their arrival. Nito, who usually would hide or be nervous of such activities has been on the prowl and quite interested in what we are up to.

Of course, the prince of the house has been keeping an eye on all activities


He was keenly interested in our movements over by the two beds. Here you can see him inspecting after the removal of one bed (I have two side-by-side twins). Soon both beds were gone, and when they came back they had no frames! No more under the bed escapades for the naughty boy!


While moving the beds we threw a blanket on his cat tree for a moment. He loved that.


After we set up the kitten's cage, Nito made himself at home within minutes.


He's even been trying to sneak into the mini-litter box and use it! No way I'm letting him do that- he can barely aim in his BIG litter box!



Well, that's about all for preparation. Next picture-post will contain kittens!!

Gah! The suspense! They are staying an extra day with their family out of town, so I'm picking them up tomorrow afternoon, not tonight.

Re: New Kittens- They've arrived!

Well, they are here! They are settling into my BF's apartment at the moment, and they've been exploring for a while. They seemed shy and scared at first, but as soon as the toy came out I couldn't stop the playing! The girl is temporarily called "Lil'Sista" and the boy is "Trouble" because he is such a hellion- he tugs on the toy and tries to run off with it just like Nito!! So far no eating, but Lil'Sista peed in the litter box! Trouble is more interested in food, Sista isn't interested at all. Is there anything tasty and kitten safe that I can tempt her with?

Once they are more secure, I'll take pictures. I don't want to scare them with the flash right now.

Nito took one look at them in the cage, got all poofed up and walked away. He did one small hiss and then we let him go home. He's being a big attention seeker in my room now. He'll have to get extra love and brief encounters with them until he's ready. He's not one to accept strange smells without a source, towel swapping seems to only agitate him so we figured we'd let him see them right away and then go home. And so far he isn't hissing at us, and he isn't hiding, he's cheerful and normal except for when he saw them.

Re: New Kittens- They've arrived!

Update: Trouble is a cooked chicken fiend! I hope that's alright to feed him- just plain cooked chicken. He went crazy over it and ate several little bits of it. He even munched mine and the BF's fingers really hard cause they smelled of chicken! He isn't interested in the canned kitten food or the kibbles soaked in water, neither is Sister. I hope that's only temporary for now! I figure I should let them eat whatever they'll eat right now since they are just newly weaned. Later I'm going to bust out the KMR milk to see if I can tempt Lil'Sista.
