The kittens at week eight - and we have a holiday to celebrate

Is it Christmas?
Do I get to wear a fancy dress? (Nessie)
Do I get to be a flower? (Zilla)
No darlins, it isn't any of those holidays.

I'm the mean vicious spider! (Sully) 
I guess that makes me the bee (Zookie)
Trick or treat! give me something good.. buzz buzz
No no kitties, see the decorations behind you, it is Memorial Day

oooh shiney.. let's kill it!

well do we get a hamburger then?
*sigh* Yes, yes you do.. now go play while I tell our readers in the USA that I hope they have a nice Memorial day, and they take a moment to remember the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces.

Another field trip for the kittens

Where are we going now??  

My vet sent me an email late last week announcing they were having an open house this past Saturday. In the email they mentioned they were going to have a professional photographer take photos of pets that stopped by. I thought what a great excuse to get the kittens out and get them in the hands of other people.

The more you expose kittens to when they are young, the better off they will be in the end as it builds a lot of confidence and self esteem.

These kitten things aren't staying.. right mom?? ~Jack

(oh wouldn't THAT have been fun with the kittens)
At the office
Zookie was perfectly happy being held
The Kraken was once again a huge hit, everyone loved him
Zookie kept trying to back up, and ended up backing himself up the wall
Headed home

I was hopeful that I could have gotten the photographer to take their weekly portraits, but it was outside, and there were a lot of people there so I felt uncomfortable asking him if he would do it inside - even though the vet said it would be okay to ask. I was really there to expose the kittens to more things, and despite their being very nervous, they did very well. They were giving away catnip toys, and Muffin (and eventually Eli) were thrilled!

Muffin sat on it to make sure no one would steal it
I ended up giving the kittens their vaccines after the trip, and all in all it was a very good day - especially when I got the call that I won this..

oooh, look at all the goodies!
Muffin inspects the winnings
I'll take this.. thank you very much 
an hour later Muffin was still in the house
an hour after that, some how Skippy got it.
All in all a very good day. I mentioned to my boss that the kittens could use another outing, and it looks like we are going to have another take your kitten to work day coming up soon.
