The last few days with the kittens

The kittens are doing well. They are super high energy - especially Superman and The Hulk who love to wrestle at full intensity. Batman likes to meep at me, it is super sweet. He meeps to get me to pet him, he meeps at me when I'm done running my hand down his body to tell me to do it again.

I have been impressed with how well-mannered these kittens are Batman and Spiderman (the two who were most shy when they arrived) are usually the first to climb up on my lap for a little attention.

I attempted a photo shoot yesterday, several of the photos were a little fuzzy because they move so fast. Hopefully,  I can pull together a decent post with them anyway, because it was kinda cute.

But today we have close-ups. Just a reminder, they are going back to the shelter on Friday.

Thank goodness it's Friday

For some reason, this has felt like a very long week. We are very glad that is Friday because I should get to spend some time with the kittens.  They are still not eating nearly as much as I would like. Spiderman (down there sniffing the CatMan's shoe) has been eating the least. He is fine.. just doesn't like the food I have been offering. I found something last night he liked, thankfully, and hopefully, he continues to like it.

I hope you have a wonderful first weekend of summer!

Aloe and Aaron's Adoption Account

Before we get to the adoption account, I wanted to share with you a few photos before they left. I was watching them run around before they went to be neutered and realized that they were reminding me of ring-tailed lemurs

Sorry guys, I know you look a little perturbed that I posted your rear end on the internet, but you know you think it is your best side.

So I took a couple hours off from work to run the kittens up to the shelter for their adoption. I decided to pack a few of their favorite toys and send them along so their transition would be easier. I met their mom Meghan and let her meet her new kitties and she was smitten. The shelter has paperwork and some counseling to do with each person who adopts so I grabbed my new kittens and headed back home then back to work. By the time I got back to work there were photos.

Meghan told me that she believes Aloe's name was supposed to be Abe. Have to say, that makes a LOT more sense than Aloe, which was such a weird name for a kitten. Shortly after the adoption, Meghan announced their new names.

These are some pretty great kittens, and they're huge fans of the under-bed closet.
In Cambodian, the phrase (and forgive the rough anglification) "bontek bontuik" means "a little bit." May I introduce Bontek (with more white - Aloe) and Bontuik (gray tiger - Aaron). A little bit of kitty and a great big pile of awesome.
I've already spent my first 30 minutes wishing I could get up to rescue dinner from burning but feeling like only a monster would disrupt the purring, nose-licking, belly-showing kitten furnace lying on my chest. It's love, y'all.
Love indeed. I'm so glad it is working out. Although I did recommend she buy a faster camera 😸 because Bontek is only still when he is sleeping (and then sometimes not even then)
