I had planned not to post today so that the Kitten post from yesterday could run another day. It still looks like four kittens can go to the shelter this weekend. We'll keep Dearest and Max here because of eye problems. Dearest is like an adult in the tiniest body imaginable. She plays but there is definitely a maturity about her. Max is such a happy boy. He romps and runs like there's no tomorrow. Golden is eating much better now, but still has ribs and spine sticking out. (I don't know how I'll ever have the heart to pull her away from her beloved mother Luna.) Soapy will stay here as well. She was the last to come around, and though she seems to be doing great, I'll keep her a while longer to make sure. It is absolutely wonderful to see her play.
So Frosty, Saucer, Trex, and Sweet Pea will go. We end up calling Frosty "Frosting" because she is so beautiful she reminds us of cupcake frosting. Saucer got her name because of her giant, round, gorgeous saucer eyes. Trex is a laid back sweetheart who is a bit of a loner. Sweet Pea will surely be a talker. She started off screaming (which worried me initially) and now those screams have muted into gabbiness.
The three adult males were neutered yesterday. More on them very soon in case someone is thinking of adopting an adult. And more on the three females, two of which have been spayed.
We set the trap last night in an area where the scruffy tortie and kittens have been spotted. No luck.
I have a handful of blog friends who each have five cats. I've always thought five was the perfect number of cats. (Of course, we are a little over that here. Or should I say alot.) In households a little more normal than my own, I've always thought having five cats was fabulous. I am officially making this adopt-until-you've-got-five day. I have absolutely no vested interest in this new official holiday. None of the management or employees of the daily dose corporation will profit in any way from this announcement. Recommendations are purely suggestive and we are not liable for any decisions made in households across the world as a result of this holiday or any of the activities therein.
