something about those 3 day summer holiday weekends....

It was a HOT weekend here. Mom slammed the windows and turned on the a/c. While some of us would prefer open windows, she found Spud and Chiclet sleeping on the floor vents at different times over the weekend (no not together - MOL).

Saturday was running around. Sunday was the transport and more laying around.


And then Monday. Mom went to the shelter to help clean since it was a holiday. Then home to do laundry. And about 1:30pm she got a call from a neighbor. They.....caught a kitten!!!

And no, that isn't Bug. But it is one of her relatives. Even down to the gray spot on the top of her head (you will have to take our word for it). This is a little girl as well. She was pretty scared at first, but by the 3rd time mom got her out and held her, she was purring (loudly) and loving on mom. She weighs just over a pound, but appears to be about 6 weeks old.

At 5am however, this morning, she was screaming for attention. And we do mean screaming!!! Mom kicked us out of the bedroom and took her in there thinking she might calm down, but no such luck. Mom finally ignored her and she cried some but did settle down a little to let mom get a bit more sleep. Funny that she didn't want to be caught or have anything to do with people and now, in about 18 hours, she is all needy.

Mom checked her phone this morning and.....they caught 2 more!!! Mom ran over to pick them up and they are now in the bathroom with their sister. One fuzzy girl and the other is short haired (no gender - that kitten was ticked off). All of them white. We know there is a calico kitten and they think there might be a tabby. They are going to keep trying to catch them over the next couple of days.

Oh, and they are stuck in the bathroom until we get the all clear on the FeLV cooties. Mom is going to contact the shelter and see if they will take these guys when they get big enough.

  6. Wow, this is awesome that the kittens are being caught and that your mom has them! The "screaming" must have been fun. LOL. Maybe she just missed her siblings. :-)

    We hope the rest are caught! Good work to all involved!

  13. How cute!!! It is amazing how quickly the kittens "flip" from feral to friendly at that young age. Hooray for you for taking care of these sweet little ones!
