I have been fostering kittens now for fourteen years. Over and over I find myself trying to convince cats and kittens that I know what I am doing and that what I am doing is in their best interest. They tell me they don't believe me and then they eventually come around and I have a moment of saying "I told you so" (because I know they don't understand) and then move on to the next thing I need to convince them of.
When I offered our mother cat something comfy to lay on to nurse her kittens, she said no thank you. For days she ignored it and then..
See, I told you.. isn't it much better to have them on something that isn't cold and slick?
I wanted to take a photo of her, and she was not happy about it.
Does that face say "I am not amused" to you? I know it does to me. And look at those wee baby faces over there.. I bet you that I could just reach under the couch..
and Mom was not happy about that. I had to be quick. I could have pulled out others, but it would have bothered her so I decided to be kind instead of selfish. For a woman with the nickname of grabbyhands, that was not easy.
