Yep, They're All Gone
This weekend we said goodbye to the last of The LaBaths. Enid and Hester Sue's Mom braved the winter weather to pick up her kitties on Saturday morning.
They had been bouncing lightly about the house when Mama Karen arrived. She put their carrier on the floor, opened up the doors and both girls (and Charlene) quietly explored it while we did all of the adoption paper work. I packed up the last of their belongings, we said our good-byes, the kittens put on their mittens, and off they went.
We certainly enjoyed our last days with these girls. We usually don't keep the kittens so long. It was fun to watch them mature a bit more and see the hair grow back in on their once-shaved little bellies.
It was a true delight knowing all of the LaBath girls. They were an exceptional little litter, I can't imagine a sweeter bunch. We will miss them dearly.
We're taking a kitten break while we finish up with the holiday season. We've got our tree up now, and I don't want to spend the next few weeks fishing kittens out of it. Also, it's a hectic time for me with work, and I don't feel I have time or focus that kittens demand.
I've still got lots of LaBath pics left so share,, so I'll continue to post those (probably not everyday) until we get a fresh batch.
