weekend wrapup

We were hoping for some open windows. Mom tried it off and on for the weekend as the temperature was cooler, but the humidity was pretty bad so she would have to give up from time to time and turn the cool air back on.

No events or transports this weekend, so it was rather relaxing. Or as relaxing as it can get with 2 kittens that run around like nuts part of the day. MOL

Daiquiri kind of smooshed herself in there but was sound asleep

Morocco isn't really allowed up there
But she is trying to wean the kittens and is having 
to find higher and higher places to hide from them

London is MUCH less snotty.
Can't even hear him breathing anymore.

no idea how that was comfortable

As most of you know, June is/was Adopt A Shelter Cat month. We kind of fell down on the job about promoting it. But....the rescue we foster for is now a partner rescue with Best Friends Animal Society and in honor of this month, they were offering adoption special prices for cats and kittens. We don't know the final number of adoptions, but mom says the adoption center has been busy every time she has been there the last week. While we love adoptions year around, we also love anything that brings attention to more adoptions for shelter cats and dogs.

Random Friday

We wish you a peaceful weekend. Mom doesn't have plans, so hopefully it will be quiet around here. And there is a rumor that it may be cool enough that she will crack some windows and we can have some wiffies.  woohoo

We do have some good news for you:

Queso was adopted Sunday afternoon (about 2 hours after getting to the adoption center). Mom has seen the paperwork and he will have a 7 month old kitty sister to torment play with.

Salsa was adopted and went home last night. One of mom's volunteer friends let us know about and said his new mom adopted another kitten at the same time, so he will have a sister to play with (no, not one of his actually sisters, but that's ok too).

Congrats on your new homes boy!!  And let's hope the other three get adopted this weekend.

kittens on the run

Sorry for the late post - just a couple of quick videos. London seems to be feeling much better. He is eating well and running around like a nut. Cairo is a chunky boy and just full of himself.

World Cat Domination

Our friend Sparkle would always celebrate, and this year her protege Summer is taking the lead.

Now, as kittens, we think these are cute enough to take over the world....but they seem to be restricting themselves to taking over the house. Not sure who exactly sat on the roof to turn it inside out, but mom was later able to fix it. Of course, the kittens put a lot of work into their demolition domination plans.

case of the missing meezer

London is a cutie, but he sure is snotty. Since he doesn't feel well, he tends to wander off to find somewhere quiet to take a nap. Over the weekend mom would pick him up and let him nap on her, but other times he would disappear. Mom finally located him at one point in the corner of the living room behind the sofa - that seems to be his favorite spot. Whatever works. He will occasionally pop back out to get a snack or run around, so mom wasn't too worried.

Friday afternoon was the first time mom opened the bathroom door and let everyone out. Mom got out of work early, so she was home to supervise. Morocco came right out and seemed fine with everyone. Mom had the gate up earlier in the week to see how things would go and the momma cat seemed pretty relaxed. She has gotten a little wound up over the weekend a couple of times, but nothing serious.

Cairo is completely full of himself and barreled right out and into the living room with us and the other kittens. He has no fear and is just super sweet. Mom picks him up and he completely relaxes and purrs.

Saturday evening, mom put Morocco and Cairo back in the bathroom for the night (the fiesta kittens have been spending the night in the playpen). There was no sign on London. Mom was still awake and reading, so she left the fiesta kittens out to play and figured London would appear. An hour later and still no sign of him.

And then mom heard it....snotty kitten breathing. She got up and looked around. No sign of him - even in the back corner where he likes to snooze. Mom sat back down....there was the sound again. She got back up and kept looking around - he had to be close to be heard. Mom finally moved one of the gates and looked under and end table....and there he was. Curled up and sound asleep. :) Mystery solved....and one meezer kitten back in the bathroom with his brother and his mommy.
