Thank goodness it's Friday

For some reason, this has felt like a very long week. We are very glad that is Friday because I should get to spend some time with the kittens.  They are still not eating nearly as much as I would like. Spiderman (down there sniffing the CatMan's shoe) has been eating the least. He is fine.. just doesn't like the food I have been offering. I found something last night he liked, thankfully, and hopefully, he continues to like it.

I hope you have a wonderful first weekend of summer!

Aloe and Aaron's Adoption Account

Before we get to the adoption account, I wanted to share with you a few photos before they left. I was watching them run around before they went to be neutered and realized that they were reminding me of ring-tailed lemurs

Sorry guys, I know you look a little perturbed that I posted your rear end on the internet, but you know you think it is your best side.

So I took a couple hours off from work to run the kittens up to the shelter for their adoption. I decided to pack a few of their favorite toys and send them along so their transition would be easier. I met their mom Meghan and let her meet her new kitties and she was smitten. The shelter has paperwork and some counseling to do with each person who adopts so I grabbed my new kittens and headed back home then back to work. By the time I got back to work there were photos.

Meghan told me that she believes Aloe's name was supposed to be Abe. Have to say, that makes a LOT more sense than Aloe, which was such a weird name for a kitten. Shortly after the adoption, Meghan announced their new names.

These are some pretty great kittens, and they're huge fans of the under-bed closet.
In Cambodian, the phrase (and forgive the rough anglification) "bontek bontuik" means "a little bit." May I introduce Bontek (with more white - Aloe) and Bontuik (gray tiger - Aaron). A little bit of kitty and a great big pile of awesome.
I've already spent my first 30 minutes wishing I could get up to rescue dinner from burning but feeling like only a monster would disrupt the purring, nose-licking, belly-showing kitten furnace lying on my chest. It's love, y'all.
Love indeed. I'm so glad it is working out. Although I did recommend she buy a faster camera 😸 because Bontek is only still when he is sleeping (and then sometimes not even then)

Super Kittens!

I have spent part of the weekend getting to know the kittens and it has been interesting, to say the least. They are high energy and have little need for me. They also have very little need of food for some reason; I'm starting to think they are breatharians. I put down a can of food and they have a bite or two, but not much more. I have dry food down as well but they aren't eating much of that either. They are happy and active and are going to the litterbox (how I have no idea) so they are obviously eating enough to sustain themselves. I keep offering new and different foods hoping to find something they will gobble down. I'm running out of options because I only have so many different types of food at the house.

Batman and Spiderman were both very reluctant to be anywhere near me when they arrived. Batman was the first kitten to voluntarily climb up on my lap for attention. He mews when I pat him, it is so flipping cute. Spiderman is also killing me with his adorableness. Both are still reserved when you move a little too quickly and when I first come into the room, but I'm pretty sure that will be over soon too.

Superman and The Hulk are very similar. Originally I was able to tell them apart by the feet since The Hulk has extra toes, but if you look at the two photos above you'll see that Superman has white on his nose and The Hulk doesn't. The Hulk's blaze on his forehead is a bit wider than that on Superman. These kitties are going to make some people very happy.

Meet the SuperHero Kitties

Aaron and Aloe's adoption went well. While I was there I was offered new kitties so I am going to put off their adoption story so I can tell you about the new kittens.

I mentioned I would like wee ones and more than two.. well I got one of those things.

Let's see. We have Spiderman (classic orange tabby), Robin (orange tiger with white), Superman (black with white), The Hulk (black with white with extra toes) and Batman (medium to long hair black with extra toes)

Yup, we have polys.. How exciting! I can tell the techs that helped with their neuter are either not cat people or not used to polys because they forgot to trim the claw between the toe.  Spiderman might have extra toes, I didn't get a really good look at him. Both he and Batman are quite nervous. As you can see in the photos they prefer to hide than explore. I was easily able to pick them both up (I designed my kitten room to make that easy) and neither one freaked out. They just really wanted to get away. I gave them both a dose of Rescue Remedy and hope they calm down and get used to the room and relax a little.

Robin is a little flirt and was happy for the attention. The Hulk and Superman were okay with me but wasn't all that interested in my attentions for now. The basket has already been sat in. The crinkle ball has already been played with. The scratching post has already been scratched on... and I imagine at this point Happy Bear has already been slept on.
