wait - we're going where????

Mom wanted to have the snack food kittens given the once over by the vet - get some weights, opinion about Samoa's goopy eyes and Triscuit's weight.

She loaded them up and off they went. Mom says she feels kind of lucky since they have traveled pretty often so they are pretty good in the car. Just some toes popping out through the bars and poking her.

They arrived at the vet's office and mom let them out to get used to the room.

Everyone was pretty good. And then.....there was snuffling under the door!!!!  Everyone went on high alert until it went away......
 we are stayin' over here until that noise goes away

Everyone got checked out and got a thumbs up!!! Mom specifically asked about Samoa and Triscuit. Samoa has some goopy eyes - he is going back on antibiotics for a time until they are REALLY cleared up. Triscuit is tiny and cute and that is the official word from the vet. MOL

Mom has speculated that maybe Triscuit and Samoa are not actually related to the bigger four kittens. The suspicion is that the bigger four were in fact Cookie's kittens and she willingly took the other two when they all came here. The facial structure of the smaller two is a little different and they are just smaller than the others. Not that it matters, but it would certainly explain the size difference.

 That being said, here are the current weights:
Chex - 1 pound 10 ounces
Samoa - 1 pound 9 ounces
Triscuit - 1 pound 5 ounces
Dorito - 1 pound 8 ounces
Milano - 2 pounds 1 ounce
Cheeto - 2 pounds 1.5 ounces

OK - so mom just notices that Samoa actually weighs MORE than Dorito. So much for the smaller theory....  MOL. But he certainly LOOKS smaller - must be cause Dorito and Chex are fuzzy.  :)  But, Samoa's structure is closer to Triscuit's size and structure.

Also - notice the size of Milano and Cheeto..... you know what that means!  Mom will be calling the spay/neuter clinic next week to make their appointments. By next weekend they should be ready to be adopted.

Oh - and Cheeto got revenge....he pooped in the carrier on the way home and mom had to drive with the windows down.  MOL


  1. That sounds like quite the adventure and fun trip for all . Glad everyone is all right. They are just so cute.

  2. They all look so very cute. Momma wanted to adopt one. Is chex the grey one? Momma wants the cute little grey kitty. If we have a bigger space, she wanted to adopt them all.

  3. blech. I can SO relate.

    XX Sylvester.

  4. Good job, Cheeto! Once in a while a kitty gets the chance to get even :)

  5. Good move, Cheeto. Lull her into relaxing, then poop all over.

  6. So there was now a Tootsie roll in the snack mix?

  7. Way ta go Cheeto! That's only to be expected when one is subjected to loud snuffly noses, of course.

  8. so cute, so little.. they grow so fast. I remember when we first got Lucy she was a little shy of three pounds. Now two month later she is almost 6 lbs

  9. so cute, so little.. they grow so fast. I remember when we first got Lucy she was a little shy of three pounds. Now two month later she is almost 6 lbs

  10. MOL! I'm sorry, but kitten revenge!
    Glad they're all doing well. Hard to believe they're that close to getting forever homes!

  11. Those kittens are so cute! And Cheeto...we're proud of you! ;)

  12. MOL! That's a pawsome way to tell mom how you's really feel Cheeto!

    Glat to hear efurrybody is doing so good (and so cute!)

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  13. Way to go Cheeto! No trip to the vet is complete without a little payback for the human. Glad you all are doing well, except poor Samoa, and will soon be ready for your little surgeries and then your forever homes. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  14. Awww, such a cute little bunch! My eyes weep quite a bit, too, and mom and dad seem to take great pleasure in cleaning them for me. I can't stand it, though!

  15. OMC. What little cuties they all are! We are happy that these babies all checked out okay. :)

  16. No matter what, they're all cute!

  17. Related or not, they are all cute as, well um, kittens! And 2 paws up for Cheeto...

  18. Oh you dearest little ones. Mommy here just goes all silly over you.

  19. snuffling under the door!!!! how exciting!! :)

    Could have been additions outside of the womb, could have been additions INSIDE of the womb as well.. could have different fathers which would result in bigger or smaller kittens depending on dad's genes..


We love to hear from you.....
