I really wasn't expecting to get kittens so soon. Generally, we don't overlap our litters, so I thought we wouldn't bring in more babies until the last of the Knapps had left.
But late Tuesday I got the call from Carrie at the shelter.
Four wee ones had just come in, and they were in need of a foster family. When she described this little batch, I just couldn't resist them.
When I got the call, the Knapps were at the vet recovering from their surgery that morning. I scrambled to prepare the quarters for the new arrivals, zipped off to the vet to pick up the Knapps, came home and got them all settled, and headed over to shelter to pick up our new wards.
On my way to the foster room, three separate people stopped me in the hall to say "Oh my gosh, your babies are SO cute".
And then I met them. They were right.
These four eensy-weensy, floofy babies, weighing 12 - 14 ounces each, were VERY cute. Very, very, very, VERY cute.
Four little Lamms.
And this is Edna Lamm.
Everyone is doing great. They are transitioning to solids and need a little help and encouragement with that, but every day they're improving.
On day one, there was a little hissing, which is always SO ridiculous coming from such a tiny thing. Now it's all trills, chirps, peeps and purrs.
And of course, crying. They're babies after all, and they scream their fluffy little heads off.
But in the cutest possible way.
Welcome little Lamms.
