So at BlogPaws Bernadette drew a photo of Odilia and raised some funds for the shelter. Bernadette provided me with a copy of the image and I had it printed on canvas. I ran across a buy one get one free sale so I had two made and Amy Jo bought one and here hangs the other..
I also hung the painting I won at the shelter's kitten shower as well. I think they look really nice there..
Speaking of things in the kitten room, I couldn't really face seeing Trevor in there with out Odi, and since he and The Spitters were of size...
and so I brought them back to the shelter.. They will be neutered and will go up for adoption if they haven't already. Good lucky sweet kitties..
and since this is a post about new additions..
Her given name is Ginger which fits as she is ginger colored under her stripes, but I don't think I'm going to keep it. We'll see what happens.
I am guessing her story was that someone was vacationing in Mexico and saw a pregnant kitty and wanted to rescue her and brought her home but once they got here it didn't work out with the dog. I can't imagine they had her any length of time.. but who knows. Maybe they took home a kitten and then got a dog? or maybe they brought home a kitten and she only got aggressive with the dog when she got pregnant.. but that doesn't explain the first pregnancy.. *shrug* suppose it don't rightly matter. She is here now..
She is thin, but I think she's just willowy. She hides until she sees me and then after a bit of conversation she will come out and eat and then very very much wants attention. She likes sitting on the couch and having her belly rubbed. She let me trim her claws. There are times I can't tell if she is playing or if I ticked her off, but as soon as I stop moving she stops trying to bite or rabbit kick me so she has very good manners..
If she is a first time mom and has fewer kittens I suspect we will have kittens by the end of the week. If she has already had a litter and has more kittens we could be looking at several weeks. I'm hoping for the former and not the latter.
Anyone want to take bets?
