Chasing Mom's Tail


Momma, what's that thing behind you??
It moves so enticingly!!
Momma?? It's following you!!
I'll get it!!
Hey look, she gave it to meeee
a tail all my own
But pumpkin, you have your own tail
Yeah, but momma's is cooler.. 
Momma!  Why you kick me??
Well little miss mom is DONE being a mom.  She sits at the door and begs to be let out.  We can't walk through the door with out holding her because she'll slip out with us.  Last night I held her while I showed her the rest of the media room outside the kitten room and she was so happy.  I'm sure she thought it was kitty nirvana.  She didn't even care that Twee was sitting there.  She has her bags packed and she wants to move in.  I fear that leaving her in the kitten room is just going to cause problems so she will be heading back to the shelter this weekend.. possibly as early as Friday if she makes a nuisance of herself tonight.  I do prefer to leave the moms with their kittens as long as possible, but there are many different reasons to separate them.  When she is unhappy.  When she is over protective.  When she is overly nurturing (and the kittens have no use for humans).

I don't even think the kittens will notice.  They are full of run and completely ADD.  The can't even stay focused on the fishing pole toy that most kittens LOVE and can't stop playing with.. If she's available they'll nurse a little, but she doesn't put up with it much any more.  Then either she's off or they are..

  4. When Moms are done, they're DONE, aren't they? :)

    Tails are the best toys ever and so convenient - they're always RIGHT there. Nothing cuter than a kitten chasing his tail, unless it's a kitten chasing someone else's tail!

  5. yep, when mom's are done it is time for them to find their own homes. it is funny that some will let kittens nurse for what seems like forever and others are done asap!! :)

  6. I guess it's a good sign that mom is so comfortable with you that she'd just move on in. It must be overwhelming for her with all those kittens--plus she's such a little thing.

  8. I just love the way kittens enjoy playing with their Mommy's tail. Then again, I know one big boy who loves to play with fluffy tails...

  10. Since momma's tail will be gone, they will have to learn to play with each other's tails.
