Itteh Bitteh Kitteh Foster Committeh


Well, many of you correctly deduced that there are BEBBEH KITTEHS in Mom’s Office, which is why The-Door-To-Mom’s-Office-Has-Been-Closed.  They are fosters that we are caring for until they get adopted into their furrever homes.

They arrived a few weeks ago, and were about 5 weeks old at that time.  Their Mama is a feral kitteh, and she has had NINE bebbehs already this year.

Including Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Joann.  This is what they looked like on their first day here:

Unfortunately, having been born and raised outside, all four kittehs had um …  ::whispers::  fleas.

So all four kittehs had to have baths with baby shampoo.  I kinda felt sorry for them.  Baths suck.   When they first arrived here, they ranged in weight from just over a pound (Mark) to 1.25 pounds (Matthew).  The kittens were (and still are) too small to get anti-flea medication.  Matthew got his bath first.

After Matthew got bathed, it was Joann’s turn.  Daddy is holding Joann in a towel as he dries her.

Luke got his bath next.  He was not happy about it either.  His eyes still look blue in this picture.  All bebbeh kittehs are born with blue eyes, but they change color over time to their adult color.

Mom and Dad tried to remove the fleas by hand to alleviate some of the kittens’ scratching.  While doing so, Mommy asked Daddy if this would be the “for worse” part of “for better or for worse”.  He replied “No, that would be if I were picking fleas off of you.”

This is Mark, the smallest of the bebbeh kittehs.  He has a pronounced kink in his tail, so that makes him easy to tell apart from Matthew and Joann.  In addition, Matthew and Mark have chocolate-black colored furs, while Joann’s furs are jet black.  Joann has a longer and thinner build than her brothers, who have rounder bottoms.

The kittens are actually kinda nice.  I’ve sniffed them through the baby gate a few times.  Initially, Luke was all macho tough guy, but he’s gotten over the posturing.  He kind of made me laugh with the arched back and attempt at fuzzing up.  Really now, I could eat him if I wanted to.  That’s me on the other side of the baby gate.

Let me just say that the amount of SQUEEING going on around here is enough to give a Furry Bambino a headache!

Please stop by on Thursday, October 22, which is Padre’s, Meerkat’s, and my Gotchaversary!  We are planning to have a party with food and nip and treats and games and naps.  And yes, you can visit the bebbeh kittehs if you must.  For health precautions, you will have to sniff them through the baby gate, since they have not been to the V-E-T yet.

My human mom sez: Ooooh, those kittehs are soooo cute–I wish I could take a couple home! I told Mom no way, I’m the Queen Bee around here and you know what happened when you tried to adopt Ernie!
Mom wants to come visit after the kittehs’ v-e-t appointment. If she is real nice to me, I will let her visit and I will try not to be jea-louse.
BTW, Bambinos, your mom and dad are really funny! ROFL!

They are cute. Mom squee’d a bit looking at them. She says your Mom and Dad are real troopers. Whatever that means.

Thanks for helping the little guys get off to a good start.

The Apostles are in good hands, and will get the best of care from the human staff. (The current residents will make sure of that. Cats got to stick together, you know…)
