Play time

 While having the panels set up in the living room takes up space, it is allowing mom to keep an eye on Mike. He's doing well. He is getting stronger and figuring everything out.

There is a waterproof pad folded over in the pen. He loves to climb under half and play. 

Chanel and Baloo spend the most time watching him. Baloo will get in there more and likes to try to play.

Meet Michael Phelps

 Mom was at the rescue last night when a nice lady showed up with an adult cat and a kitten. The other volunteer grabbed mom and asked her to take a look. 

Turns out the lady's neighbor was just going to leave both of them outside. Which is bad enough. Except the kitten is about 6 weeks old....and has cerebellar hypoplasia (CH). He wouldn't have survived 5 minutes on his own.

Plus he was covered in fleas. So he got a snack and a bath. He also got the once over and a name with a cat in our intake department named King. 

Another volunteer took him overnight but he now with us since she was unsure about giving him enough supervision with her hours. 

He is set up in the living room now. We have all checked him out and we will see how this goes. Right now it's hard to tell how severe he is since he is young. Hopefully a few weeks and we will have a better idea. Either way he is a happy boy and super cute.

 We are going with a noodle theme. Mom is named Farfalle. She should be available for adoption in the next couple of days. 

Mom put numbers in their ears yesterday in an attempt to figure out who was who and took pictures. Then she realized she has welping collars that are velcro and will come off, so 4 of the 6 are now wearing those.

#1 female, teal collar

#2 male, orange collar

#3 female, pink collar

#4 female, no collar

#5 female, red collar

no number or collar cause seriously....

So no, they don't look exactly alike, but when mom is trying to medicate or weigh them or anything else, all you can see is a mass of brown tabby and white and when she thinks she has them all, it never fails she missed one.

People were asking and yes the cold air machine got fixed. Thank goodness since the weather outside currently feels like July and not September.

Also, if you watch the web cams, they keep pointing one toward the wall. Weirdos. You may also notice Chutney in there a good deal of the time. She decided on her own to join the other kittens.

 The cold airs came back after a couple of days and the repair guy coming to visit. Chanel of course was sure she needed to help so she got put in time out. 

Mom realized yesterday morning that she hadn't seen Chutney over night. Turns out she snuck into the foster room when mom fed the kittens last night and didn't come back out.

The new kittens are named after noodles: Orzo, Fuscilli, Gnocchi, Cavatelli, Rigatoni, Manicotti (we know this is the male brown tabby). Mom has to grab them to get individual pictures so they can get named and posted here. 

Otherwise things are pretty much the same here as always.

We are melting

 The cold air machine decided to break. Mom was at least it's not July here but it's warm. And we live on the 2nd floor of the building so it's not so nice here. Mom has all the fans on high and ice cubes in the water dishes. And the repair guy is coming tomorrow. 

In the meantime we are making her feel guilty:

Well except these 2 who are enjoying the open sliding door in the foster room.
