Re: 3 Kittens will be available to adopt 9/20 - Irving TX Update
Update on the kitten crew - the eye infection is cured and the toes & tails that were infected is now new pink skin with the hair starting to grow in. They are off the bottle now but I'm still giving them formula twice a day. Litter training is going well - very few oops. Like any toddler they are heading for the litter tray but sometimes can't quite make it. Another week and they should have enough control to make it all the way in the tray every time.
At this moment they are chasing each other around the coffee table. I've got Methos & Punkin on the table observing, Pixel is on the back of the recliner pretending not to watch, and Tuffy is crouched in a box hoping one of the kittens will come close enough for him to swat. They are not that dumb. Bentley is parked by me making his grumpy old man noises - the kittens have taken over his nap basket AND his nap beanbag and he is not happy to share. Bless him for being a true alpha and keeping the peace in this zoo.
Smokey - a little girl, pale gray with a lovely pattern, is the lover of the crew. She has learned to climb onto the couch & snuggles in for a nap. Getting off the couch is an undignified bellyflop.
Bif will end up a orange marmalade tom. Right now he is a beige but is darkening. He is the adventurous one with only two speeds 90 mile an hour & sound asleep. He tried out the cat tree this morning but got snagged 4 inches off the floor & had to be rescued. Toe pick.
Buffy will be a lighter orange marmalade. Whoever takes him will need to change the name. He is quieter than the other two and is not the cuddle **** the others are. He is happy to get attention but will sit quietly and watch your every move. Even tho he is the smallest of the 3, he is the first to the food dish. He's been getting a bath morning and nite because he is a formula soaked mess after eating.
