There was quite a crowd of kitties this morning! There are 12 cats in this picture. Happily, Rolando Moon is still hanging around, busily hissing at any cat that comes near. We haven't seen Creamsicle in a while, though. I hope he is all right. The cat butt sticking out of the entry is a … Continue reading Progress: sun room door and cat kibble shelter
Beep Beep seems to enjoy her retirement to indoor life. This is how I found her this morning. She just loves this corner of the couch, so my husband has been making nests for her. Because we're not sucks when it comes to the cats. Not at all! /sarcasm... The kittens were out and about … Continue reading Morning kitties!
It was a gorgeous evening tonight, so I headed outside to move the metal ring back to the taller apple tree stump and burn it away, along with more of the branches we'd pruned away, earlier in the year. Before I set up there, though, I topped up the various containers we use for cat … Continue reading Success!
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
