Happy healthy kittens means that we are close to saying goodbye



Sherlock and Watson are doing very well. Both of them have put on weight and are doing so well that they are going to the shelter tomorrow to be neutered. No one has committed to adopting them so they will stay there and once they have recovered enough they will go up for adoption.

I am hopeful that more kittens will be coming quickly. It is still early in kitten season here so it might not be immediate but I am sure it will be soon.


The kittens had visitors this weekend. Our friends Laurie and Peter who adopted Lion like to come out and test out of kittens and I am so happy to have 'strangers' come and see how the kittens react to new people. I generally like taking them to work with me for a morning, but that hasn't worked out for these kittens, so having guests was the next best thing. I was glad to see how they react to me is the same way that they reacted to new people.


I've also noticed that Sherlock, despite being incredibly curious and problem-solving, defers to Watson for a lot of things. He lets Watson eat and does not bully him out of food, which I would have suspected he would have done by how "high octane" he is. He will not be the first one in my lap, but once Watson is up on my lap and purring Sherlock shows up and joins in.


I am going to recommend to the shelter that they are adopted together because I think that Sherlock would be better off with a friend. I try not to do that for several reasons. Despite my fully believing that kittens are better off in pairs, sometimes people connect with two kittens from different litters or they might already have a young kitty at home and are realizing a second one would help.


Where ever they end up, they will have been vetted by the shelter and I trust them to make the best decision they can for them.

I hope you stop by tomorrow as I am going to have a giveaway for a fairly unique product that completely surprised me by how well it worked.

  1. Awww, they're going already? I'm glad they're doing well, though, and that you took such good care of them (as you always do!).

  2. I'm thinking that Sherlock and Watson will find a home together; they compliment each other, and any smart family would realize the bonus they'd be getting by bringing these two into their home.

  7. So glad that they are almost ready to be adopted! I also really hope that they are adopted together. I kind of with I got two together (when I had Walker he was a kitten as well), but Beau didn't come too much later! All the best!!
