Anyway. they made eyes at the women I work with, and even tried out their new teeth, which they didn't find nearly as amusing as I did. They then proceeded to fall asleep on my boss' desk.
When I got home, I had three kittens who has successfully left the nesting box. The tri and the two solid blacks. The little tiger w/ white (I'm thinking of calling her Maru as she has a lot of the look, but really does lack the personality so I'm not sure) was quite frantic calling for her tricolored sister. She would walk along the side of the box and keep looking out. The boy had no interest in the outside world, he was totally content in the box.
I was a little concerned about the free roaming kittens, and litter box habits. Since I found all the urine in the bedding over the weekend, and stimulating them showed they had full bladders at that point, I figured mom was totally done with that job. I pulled out a kitten sized box and filled it with clay litter and plopped a black kitten in. Of course there was the obligatory play, and then the taste test, but then she seemed to settle down.. was it??
|Why yes, it is!!|
and so did the other two, with almost no prompting!! yea!! (amazing how kitten litter box habits are so important). The tabby still wanted out, and I thought if she would use the box, I'd help her out, so I picked her up and put her in the box. Well she then proceeded to tell me she wanted out of that box too! then she realized it felt different on her feet, and went to investigate. More taste testing ensued, and soon she ended up with a mouth full of litter.. silly kitten
So I tried the litter box trick with him. Figured maybe he just didn't care much. So I put him in the litter box, and after a little coaxing (ok so I stimulated him to help him get the picture) he ended up settling down and urinating. He didn't do the usual stance, with the tail out, so I wasn't sure, but the then moved and *actually covered!!!* He was the only one.. odd that the one completely clueless kitten I have (and trust me, the comparisons to Tweedle have already been made) was the only one to actually cover.
after some more playing, and some more nursing, I plopped them back in the box to see if the boy and the tiger could /would work their way out.
|Iz not halpin! I just happened by!|
|You can't leave, I'm just too cute!|
