Today was a day to work on a whole bunch of little things that needed to be done or started - and a surprise breakage. Rather than do one huge post, I'll split them up into a bunch of little posts. But first, here's something that cheered me up this morning. Of course, there was … Continue reading Morning cheers
Beep Beep was doing a good job of keeping her babies warm on this chilly morning. She didn't come out at all while I topped up her food and water The basement actually maintains a pretty constant temperature, but while we didn't get the predicted thunderstorms in our area, we did get quite a bit … Continue reading Morning kitties, and keeping warm
Some fluffy little worms to brighten your day! One of the orange babies still has its eyes closed. The other had one eye open, one eye... almost open. 😀 They have also reached that stage where they do the little hissing and trying to spit thing. 🙂 Beep Beep, however, was more than comfortable with … Continue reading Morning kitties
I have noticed that Beep Beep is more willing - or able! - to leave the babies while they sleep. This is encouraging, as it means she is getting food and water, and using the litter, more often. She's also getting a chance to wander around, say hello, and jump up to one of the … Continue reading All the kitties!
I am happy to say that Butterscotch's remaining kitten is doing very well with her adoptive mom. I wasn't able to get a photo today (I didn't want to bug Beep Beep too much), so this is one I got last night. Butterscotch's baby is the second from the left, happily nursing. On the one … Continue reading Good news so far!
So... we seem to have a problem. Butterscotch's third orange kitten died today. I checked on them this morning. Beep Beep's kittens were sleeping in a pile, and she had even come to the stairs to greet me when I came down, before dashing back into her nest. Butterscotch was in her nest, sitting like … Continue reading Another one gone. 😦
My daughters and I went into the basement maternity ward to set up a new "nest" for Butterscotch and her babies, and block off the old radio so she wouldn't go in there again. As we took her babies out, however, we found another of her orange babies was struggling. We spend the next while … Continue reading More sad news
It is already turning out to be a very warm day today. We're supposed to hit a high of 15C/59F this afternoon! While doing my rounds this morning, I had a Potato demanding cuddles the whole time. 🙂 It was warm enough that I went to try and move the saw horses by the storage … Continue reading Sad news
I was talking to my daughter a little while ago when she happened to mention the current indoor cat count we have right now. Eighteen. I ... really hadn't thought about that. We've now got 8 cats upstairs, plus the 2 mamas and their 8 babies in the basement. That is insane. Two Face has … Continue reading So many cats… and a bit of a hang up
This afternoon, one of my daughters and I brought our inside mama cat to the vet for a check up. She has been acting very ornery and out of sorts, and my daughter, sweetheart that she is, wanted to get her checked out. They did some blood tests and even a quick ultrasound to make … Continue reading Babies, bills and pills
