If you've been following along on Sundays, you'll have already met the crew. If not take a moment to go back and catch up on:
This week, our milestones are playing, purring, beginning to clean ourselves, accidental piddles in the box requiring bedding changes, eyes beginning to focus and lots of floppy ears. I'm still learning to use my camera past "auto" and the mugshots were taken with low light options. I'll make sure to use that next week since the rest of the images are blurry or grainy. Sorry about that! Click any picture to embiggen.
Bruce - Feeling much better this week. Eyes are bright and clear. See how the light shines off them while he unhappily has his photo taken. Poor baby. His little bat ears are really sticking straight up now. He's still quiet and reserved. We're trying to specifically give Brucey lots of attention because his little sister often gets picked up twice due to his reserved nature.
Harley - Quickly turning into a cuddler! Miss thang spent the day staring up at me out of the box, quickly followed by bored yawns. She kept trying to climb out of the box to follow me.
LilTom - This sweet boy has a home! Mom's found someone with an adult cat who needs a new bud to give him some exercise. Tom is a playful kitten who will do great with another cat. He's getting awfully pretty, taking after his Mom's lanky features and Dad's patterning. So cute.
Miss Jane - And news I've been almost too excited to say - Both girls have also been promised to a home! Jane and Harley will be going to the same home when the time comes. She's settling down as her sight and sound give her more to rely on and give her comfort. She was all about asking for attention. I had trouble with clear photos on all because of kittens turning away, but she kept running into the camera! Silly girl.
Sgt. Socks - Whatchu talkin bout, Socks? Sweet sweet boy! Still a cuddler, but definitely more up for traveling these days. He actually did climb out of the box and into my lap. Loves pets and making wicked hilarious faces. Still trying to talk Mom into keeping this one. Though she wants a new name for him. Got any good explorer/adventurer names? This mild-mannered fella needs something to balance him out. (And Mom has officially ruled out "Sarge")
And I can't forget my #1 furbutt, Spike. He decided to break free from his collar last weekend so I let him prance around with my leather bracelet around his neck. I had to hunt him down to get it back~! He did look pretty good in it. He and I got some one-on-one time today. He's not really fond of the kittens so he tends to hide when I've got one. Sammycat on the other hand keeps giving Mom the slip and disappearing outside. He does come back, but no pics of him today since he came back after I put my camera away.
With 3 out of 5 kittens already promised to new homes, I'm still hunting for homes for the other two and the Momma. Wish me luck!
