Hey, Big Boy!
Yesterday you met the tiniest,, today you're meeting the biggest of the brood.
He's mostly black, but he's got some gray streaks on his back and sides and a little bit of white on his chest. He's quite fluffy and round. I guess I would call him a dilute fluffxedo.
He was the first to purr.
Everybody is doing great. They all have mastered the litter box. Not a single accident ANYWHERE. Every one's eating well too.
Last night I was going into the kitten room and Charlene snuck in behind me. I scooped her up quickly, so she wouldn't make contact with the babes or their food.
They had just tucked themselves into their basket, and were ready for bed.
When they noticed Charlene, their little heads popped up and they looked at her wide-eyed. The tiny guy cried out, wriggled around and started kneading his tiny paws on the edge of the basket.
No one had acted like they missed their mama before, but in that 3 seconds when they saw Charlene, it seemed like they did.
I have to say, it kind of broke my heart. Poor, sweet little orphan kitties.
This morning I was greeted with lots of swishy tails and purrs. They had a good breakfast, then everyone came over and sat on me while they washed their little faces. One by one they jumped off and started their morning wresting routine.
All is well in their world.
