kitten update....

Well, it is looking like it may be about "that" time. Mom pulled out her scale the other night and got weights on the Gemstone kittens:

Opal: 2.5 pounds, Cory 2.5 pounds, Kyan 2.1 pounds, Emma 1.5 pounds (yeah, not really surprised by that last number).  So, mom may call the clinic to see about surgeries for Opal and Cory. The issue is how to get them up to Petco. Cleo may be OK with them, but the store manager may freak out a bit. 

Speaking of Cleo, mom thought she might have had a home for her over the weekend. Mom stopped into the store to check on everyone and there were some ladies with no other animals at home interested in Cleo. Mom gave them an application and was playing with Cleo when she heard the ladies making some snide remarks about the questions on the application. Mom walked away and when she came back they were gone. It is frustrating that some people seem to think that they are "helping" us by "taking" a cat and therefore there should be no application, no contract and no adoption fee. OK, then sorry NO cat for you. ugh.....

Anyhow, mom had been a little worried about Emma for a while. She is obviously smaller than everyone else and while they are interested in playing, Emma was more interested in sitting on mom's lap and not doing much. Well, over the weekend that has changed and Emma has been playing more. Still not as much as everyone else....but more than she has been. (and watch the whole thing - about half way through she has words with Uncle Bill)

  8. MOL, yeah, she has words for Uncle Bill, but he hardly noticed! What a gentle kitty he is!
    And I love how in the background, I don't know which guy that is.. looks like he's trying to roll the tube over everyone! Steamroller! MOL
    Just the cutest batch of kittens ever!

  9. Emma is too cute! I had a runt of the litter calico who passed away in 2007 at 7 years old from kidney failure. Emma reminds me of her so much. She was also small and slower to develop but a wonderful companion and completely attached to me (as I was to her...)
    Someone will be very happy with Emma, I'm sure.

  10. Emma is so cute - sometimes the runts are the best kitties!

  11. We get a lot of applications at the no-kill rescue that "aren't good". We want the best for our furbabies!

    Emma may be little, but she can pack a whap :)

  12. The video didn't load for me...just a black square. It could be my satellite internet was acting weird. I'll come back later to see if it loads.

    If people don't see the importance of a detailed questionnaire in adopting an animal, they are not the type of person that should be adopting an animal. I'm glad those ladies were weeded out immediately.

  13. Aww...what a teeny tiny sweetie! Love the whap to Uncle Bill. He doesn't appear to be too concerned either.

    Here's hoping Cleo gets her forever home very soon AND with a awesome family who deserve a great kitty like her!

  14. Emma may be small but she has a diva attitude. I don't understand people that pooh-pooh applications and home visits, you would think that it would just make sense to everyone.

  15. The applications and the response to a fee weeds out the not so good possilbe new owners. We've had plenty of them who came to rescue a kitty and couldn't understand there was a contract to sign and a fee to pay. They don't understand that the kitties at the no kill shelters are already rescued!Just looking for a new home of their own.
