Cotton's Tale - April 26, 2010

Yes, I am afraid of kittens.

Check up time - 4/24/2010

Big day yesterday in the kitten-hood. Mom went back to the shelter, so the little ones are on their own now. They got checked out, vaccinated, de-wormed (yuk!), and nails trimmed. A very handsome set, indeed!

Unfortunately, the two little tuxedos tested positive for FeLV. They'll be rechecked in 30 days and hopefully, this is just a false positive. Mom & their ginger brother are negative.

Cotton's Tale - April 20, 2010

The big day is finally here! The vet cleared him and Cotton is finally out of quarantine. He's allowed to roam around the house now, but seriously, he's turning into a big chicken!

He's 14 lbs of hissing & scratching around me, but now that he can run free, he still clings to his own little bathroom. He won't come downstairs yet. When my two girl-kitties come upstairs at night, they run rings around him - literally. He's being chased down the hall by a 6lb, 3-legged girl-cat!

All that bravado was just bully-talk....he's really just a 'fraidy cat!

Kyndra's Kittens - 4/13/2010

Here's some updated pics of Kyndra's Kittens. Little orange tabby male is Reinhardt. Tuxedo kit with salt & pepper fur is female Raquel. Other tux male (with less white) is Murrel. They are toddling around, maybe just on the verge of eating 'real' food, and Mom Kyndra is so-o-o-o ready to be done!

Cotton's Tale - 3 months - 4/13/2010

Big Day today!

Dr Silvia brought her mobile vet clinic to the house and gave Cotton the full workup. He wasn't nearly the terrible attack-cat that I expected him to be. Vaccines, blood draw, nail clip, flea treatment, and deworming!

Tomorrow, hopefully we'll find out that he is clear to be introduced to the rest of the household. It's taken him a long time to learn his 'indoor manners'. Last big hurdle will be the intro to my girls.

Baby Pics - 4/2/2010

I know, I know, I've been terrible about posting lately. My last two foster kittens got no blog time at all. They were a couple of scaredy cats, so pictures of them running away from me aren't that interesting.

Here's some cute baby snaps of Kyndra & her little crew. Eyes are just starting to open now and they are wiggling around. So cute!
