Tonight .... I just opened the bedroom door. Now I've got 9 adult cats and 5 kittens racing around and am having to go pet ruffled fur whenever I hear a hissy-fit from a kitten/cat having a sudden meet-up.
I keep telling the Big Cats they're just Little Cats and they used to be Little Cats, too, so give 'em a break, they ain't gonna eatcha!
Louie, Floofy and Skippyjon Jones are enjoying playing with the babies. Squirrely-Jo doesn't really care one way or the other. In fact, she was accidentally closed into the bedroom with them last night for almost 3hrs. The other girls; Pretty, Shadow, Shasta, Malibu, and last boy, BooBoo are all having major hissy fits so they are keeping up high, out of the way and able to safely watch the action 'cause these babies are EVERYWHERE!
Four of the kittens are having a BALL running up/down the hall, around the furniture and playing with all the Big Cat Toys they've never had access to, and only one kitten (short hair classic Torbie
) is having issues. I keep following her around, petting her to reassure her, picking her up so she can watch the action below her and feel safe. It only takes a few cuddles and pets before she's purring and then wanting to get down and join the play.
