Happy #LeapDay


A quick update on the kittens.  They are doing well. I have not seen any signs that they are missing their mother. Sprite seems to be a bit more outgoing as a result, which is nice. Wryn still runs from me when I walk through the door, but she is a bit more willing to walk up to me. Yesterday morning I brought down some baby food (because I forgot to get hot dogs). I underfed a little them the night before so they would be hungry for sure when I walked in the room. Sprite easily took it but Wryn was not a fan of my coming at her. If I could sneak up on here she'd take it... which in my mind was a win. I had a feeling it was going to be very slow going. I kept pushing, and at some point, she had had enough of my shenanigans and wouldn't come near me. I continued to sit there and play with them and she eventually came closer.

Last night I brought the camera down to get these photos, and we had a long play session. I then fed them and sat on the couch and caught up on some tv. Sprite climbed up on the couch and fell asleep. Wryn, not wanting to be alone, soon climbed up too, and she picked a spot right next to me and voluntarily touched the back of my leg. I nearly squee'd myself.  She too fell asleep, and I was able to pat her and she started to purr..  If she keeps this up I won't be able to convince myself I should be keeping them much longer. We'll see how the next few days go.

As I predicted, Lemonade was snapped right up at the shelter and had a home before Saturday had ended.  I went into the shelter in the afternoon to take photos and she was already gone, so she was barely there 24 hours.

And now.. we leap.
