Good Morning, Mr Livermore
Mr Livermore is the same little kitten you met yesterday. The kitties came late in the day, so I had a limited amount of natural light to photograph in. (it sure is getting dark earlier these days!) He's the only one I was able to capture.
The surname has been decided upon, but still no decisions on the first names. So for now,,, it's just Mr Livermore. There are a couple of other Misters and a Miss too. You will be meeting them shortly.
The kittens are all settling in just fine. They are getting used to their new surroundings and new family. So far, this Mr Livermore is the most social. He purrs upon eye contact. The others have good motors too, but you have to catch them first. They like to dart under things when you first enter the room. They are warming up though. I can see vast improvements in the brief time we've had them. I'm sure they'll be just like the Davenports... 'fraidy cats turned loving machines.
Although she was a little bored at first, Charlene did seem to enjoy the kitten break. When the kittens are around, she always near them, keeping a watchful eye. The break gave her the opportunity to relax a bit and catch up on some napping. Since the Livermores arrived, she's been camped out on the other side of their bedroom door, anxiously awaiting introductions. She can't meet them yet. We've got to make sure they are all A-OK and didn't come in with any bugs.
Drewey was happy to have a kitten-free life for a spell. She never really interacts with the kittens, on a rare occasion she might have to dash past them on her way out the door. Some how they managed to cramp her little old lady cat style.
It's very nice having kittens again. I certainly did miss them but it was nice having a break too. It made me realize how much time caring for kittens, photographing and blogging really does take. I can't really slow down on the kitten care, but I can slow down with the blog. I'm still planning on blogging, of course, but I probably won't be posting every day.
Thanks for sticking around while I was on hiatus. I know you're anxious to meet all the Livermores. I'll post them as I name them.
