First, thanks for letting us know other cats are afraid of thunder. None of us are, so mom was a little baffled by Chiclet.
And to clarify the kitten situation, we plan to get everyone (except Grace who is too small) spayed/neutered on Thursday. However, not everyone is SOCIALLY ready to be adopted. So as space opens up and the kittens are socialized, they will go to the rescue. Right now that is Zoe and Grace, maybe Audrey and Lucy. Jimmy and Josephine....not so much. (hey Katnip Lounge - don't tease mom about stuff like that!!)
However, on that note, mom took her assistant Tim in with her last night again. It is amazing the transformation that occurs when he is in there. They spent about 30 minutes and then Tim had enough. When mom went back in a couple of hours later to feed them before bed, Jimmy hissed at her again. All about the small steps.... As you can see in the last picture, socializing kittens is exhausting!!
