well I weighed Ella tonight and she weighed 2lbs..(for comparison, Jackson is 3.5) so it looks like the end of their stay is sooner rather than later. Elsa is doing so well that I only have a few minor reservations about her going up for adoption... and all of them having to do with not being able to control the public that enters to see her. But that is not for me to deal with. I will mention my observations of her to the shelter and let them deal with what they want to do with her. My hopes is she does so well on the adoption floor that she goes home shortly after showing up. She is quite beautiful and really is loving and fun and is so energetic that I can't imagine someone wanting her now (as long as they don't have little kids)
|Oddly enough she does remind me a bit of Daisy. |
It is in some of the poses she makes.
The painters have been dealing with some inflammation in their eyes. Mostly Jackson. It was in his left eye, and as that started to clear up it went to his right. Somewhere in between it jumped over to Evelyn's eye.. There has been some random sneezing but all in all it is pretty minor. One of those wait and see instances, and I think it will clear up in time. Probably not in time to get them all home by Black Friday, but hopefully by December 1st *paws crossed*
This morning DH and I went out and about to the Christmas Fairs. We walked into one fair and there was a pair of "Bear Chairs" each was marked at $1.00. I commented how cute would that be with the kittens cuddled up on one. My husband noticed they were only $1.00 each and lobbied to buy it. I laughed at him and said he needed to buy the stuffed cat sitting on it to show the kittens what to do with it. I wandered off to look at something else and when I turned around he had the bear and the cat in his hands. :) It was so adorable that every single person there who was older than us said something cute to him.
|the kitten is about the size of a beanie baby..for size reference|
|In case you were wondering, yes Elsa is nursing the Painters|
I ended up taking a hundred or so pictures. Ella thought the bear's eyes had to die. Both Ella and Jackson whispered something into the bear's ear.. lots of sniffing, lots of posturing.. they are freakin adorable, but it is a freakin lot of pictures too..
Miss Lady Frida Floofface... I don't quite know what I am going to do with that kitten. I adore her so, but she still has some major trust issues. I so wish I could get my hands on my Rescue Remedy. I've got a couple of bottles floating around the house at this point. Part of me says that if I can't find it than it must be that I shouldn't be using it. I keep looking for it hoping, because I do think it will do her some good.. *shrug* But tonight we did two things.. I got her running around after the toy and she touched my leg *YEA!!* and I took her on a "field trip" around the house and let her take a look at The Crew and how much they trust me. I took her into the bathroom and shut the door and put her down and let her walk around for a bit. I was able to pick her up with out much of an incident, but I could tell that while I was doing it she really really REALLY wished I was in Antarctica.. Jackson - he is pretty much a normal socialized kitten, only being hesitant when you go straight at him, but then so are a lot of other kittens. Evelyn is somewhere in between.
Then I went to the #BlogPawtyPALs on Twitter. This is the second BlogPaws Twitter party I've been to this week. The first one was on Tuesday and it was a rather long and drawn out event.. Even still I ended up winning two prizes at it :) This one was much shorter, and I won.. well I won two prizes out of this one too.. only thing is one of them was something I really couldn't use (OK I probably could have, I wouldn't mind a good walking jacket for Skippy, but it was more of a dog harness thing) so I "donated" it back to the party. Funny thing was the person who won it after me also donated it back.. lol. It finally ended up with someone who was very happy to have it, so that was a good thing. then there was this:
Freaking exciting hun?? If you haven't seen the talking Guinea Pig video PAL has done, you so need to.
So, only thing more exciting than the prize was this..
|Twitter reads backwards..|
They did give away another $500 prize, but I failed to win that one (as is probably the right thing)
Afterwards I thought about Jeanne and the need that she has and felt a little bummed I didn't remember sooner, but I hope that by supporting the auction they are going to have to fund raise will do some good.
