Getting to know the new kittens


I still haven't settled on names.  I totally want to go the ABBA route, but pronouncing those names and spelling them isn't my strong suit.. so right now we are going with the obvious..

Blue Eye (f)
Crazy Pants (m) This boy does not sit still.. ever
Cowardly Lion (m) He doesn't do anything with out watching everything first.. 
The Melody Look Alike (f) She is also reserved.. 
Crazy Pants and Blue Eye are so over being wary.. they are also so over being cage confined too.. Cowardly Lion and The Melody Look Alike are still not quite sure about this being in a house thing.. they haven't quite figured out that not everything is a threat.. but they will, I'm sure of it..

I cage foster skittish cats to learn how they stand on things.  When I walk in the room if they are at the front of the cage begging to be let out so they can run around, I know they are no longer afraid of me or being out in the world.. if they sit in the back and won't come out I know they still see me as a threat.  I sit patiently in front of the cage and make them climb over me to get out and play, which they all do in pretty short order..

They pretty much all had diarrhea when they showed up, and with fluffy pants it created a bit of a mess.. but we gave baths and had to do a lot of grooming of them afterwards (and still have more to go) fortunately none of them mind it very much.

It looks like ol Blue Eye is already spoken for at this point (got to love the power of the internet) I posted a couple of videos of them playing on Facebook and it got in front of the right set of eyes and it was a done deal.. that is if my husband doesn't fall in love with her first.  The first time she met him she crawled right up into his lap, up his chest and patted at his face.. (yes, I was a little jealous) Anyway.. you can see those videos here and here..

  8. Oh, yes, I too am smitten with Cowardly Lion. Maybe because Derry still is, even after almost 6 years with me? I hope for wonderful forever homes for them all. I know I'd be hard pressed not to keep the little Lion! :-)
