The kittens have been tearing around all over the place!
Last night, I spent some time outside with them, tossing out cat treats in various directions. The tuxedo was once again the only kitten that would come near me, and even allowed me to pet him.
This afternoon, while heading out to go pick up some prescription refills, they heard as and all came out – even the ones that wouldn’t come near us. My husband has been putting food out for them in the mornings, but they didn’t all come out until later.
So of course, my daughter and I paused to say hello.
Beep Beep’s kittens now have names. Meet Doom Guy, the tuxedo.
Who loves my daughter’s new purse!
While we were out, we started to hear some plaintive meowing from… somewhere.
It turned out to be one of the inside cats, at the kitchen window.
Beep Beep’s tabby went to take a look. Meet Corvo (why yes, my daughters are gamers… why do you ask? LOL)
He had even stretched up, with his paws on the wall, trying to get closer to the window, but I wasn’t able to get a picture. Too cute!
Butterscotch, three of her babies, and Beep Beep, at the food bowls. The larger orange tabby made a showing, but I wasn’t able to get a picture of him.
Then, something amazing happened.
Doom Guy allowed my daughter to pick him up. He not only stayed (though he wasn’t quite sure how to handle being held) and let us pet him, but even started to purr!!
Just before we left, my daughter had to rescue her bag again. 😀
Well, okay. He’s not quite comfortable around us, yet. 😀
In other things; it had been my plan to work along the fence line today, but it was much chillier than I expected. So it was a morning to do some crochet. Later on, I’ll be making a big batch of chili in the crock pot, and setting some aside in jars for my mother, for when she comes home from the hospital. Between my siblings and I, she will hopefully not have to cook for quite some time, and can focus on recovery. Though there has been come discomfort for her, everything has been going very well with her. At the moment, she’s expected to come home on Saturday, and my older brother plans to stay with her for a few days, to help her out. We should know by then if she will need home care or not, too. I hope she does get it, just to make sure she doesn’t over do things too early. My family is notorious for ignoring pain or injury and pushing ourselves through it, even when we shouldn’t! 😀
