Another Tuesday another vet check....

Mom has to confess something.....  by Friday night, she was pretty frustrated. The kittens are still messy and while things are better, Nasa is still pretty drippy at times (sorry - only thing we could come up with). The kittens were messy and the bathroom was a wreck. Mom came home and they were screaming and mom was just over it all.

She spent a couple of hours on Saturday scrubbing down the bathroom and the kittens. Friday night she was better after she got something to eat and an adult beverage. However, then about an hour after she cleaned on Saturday, Nasa got all excited and poop got over the floor and on mom. Ugh....

Fortunately by Sunday they were doing better. Mom suspects that Orbit, Hubble and Sputnik are over 2 pounds. Nasa is the one we still worry about - his belly is full after meals but his body isn't filled out. Corona is filled out and just needs to put on a little weight.

Corona and Nasa
Nasa has food on his nose - Corona does have a black spot on her nose

He has more white on his face - and while mom can't 
get a picture, his eyes are an interesting shade of blue-green.

Nasa and Sputnik (who wishes the lady would put down the camera and serve dinner)

Orbit (this is the only way mom could get her to hold still for 2 seconds)

 and finally dinner was served

Things got a little weird around here Monday (more on that Thursday - be sure to check back). So when mom took the kittens to the shelter this morning, she spoke to the cat caregiver...better her than the shelter director. It sounds like there may be space on Thursday to spay/neuter the bigger ones. Mom explained about the weirdness and said the smaller two (Corona and Nasa) can't come back. So.....the space kittens are back at the shelter. We will let you know what goes on with them.  :)


  1. It looks like they are messy when the food goes in, as well as when it comes out. I hope the little ones will get over whatever is causing their problems.

  2. Oh dear. I hope all is OK.
    We send goat hugs.

  3. Well... messy or not, they're pretty darned cute!


  4. Your mom is a saint. We hope everything works out for the kitties!!
    Play bows,

  5. If you see on the news that CROOKSVILLE is Flooded... that is the little town 8 miles from our hill.

  6. Those are some messy little babies! We hope they'll be fine back at the shelter. :)

  7. Hugs! Sounds like your mom is having a heck of a time! Give her some extra cuddles, guys!

  8. wee small space kittehz...while yur mom iz havin an " adult beverage or 7" ...ewe guys can chillax ?? !!! on sum nip !! best fishes this week :)

  9. I hope these little guys get past whatever is causing them issues!

  10. These kits have certainly been more than a pawful. Mom just had to clean out a PTU on a transport due to a leaky kitten, and she thought it was the worst mess she had ever seen. She can't imagine a whole bathroom. Your mom needs more than one adult beverage and some extra special cuddles from all of you. Sending extra purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty may, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  11. Mebbe the space kitties need to be in a place that can be hosed down a bit. And something more "binding" to eat. Whatever, we sure hope they get well soon...

  12. Well, they may be a handful, but they sure are cute.

  13. We hopes the space kitties will be okay. Purrs for little NASA!

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  14. Don't blame you one bit for losing it every now and then, I do too around here. There is always someone that needs something. Give yourself an hour off. Take care.


We love to hear from you.....
