A Thank You and A Thunderous Herd
First, I want to start of by saying thanks to all of you for the many kind comments left on our 2000th post. You say such sweet things. I am happy to know that this blog can be a bright spot in your day. You all do the same for me. THANK YOU. You truly are the best. Truly.
Now on to kitten business.
Remember when these kittens first moved in and I said that they were short-timers? Well. It's almost time. Three out of five of our little Winklers are off getting snipped today. The other two will be going in next week. So, our days our numbered with this precious set.
But they're not gone yet. They'll be trickling out the door over the next 12 days, so let's enjoy these sweet Tabbies and spend some time getting to know them better.
Just a couple days ago they got the full run of the house and got to meet Charlene. I've got some clips of their first meeting which I'll share with you tomorrow. Movies take so much more time than photos, so in the interest of getting a post up sooner rather than later today, it will have to wait.
They Winklers were SO ready to get out of quarantine. The last couple of days, it was virtually impossible to get through the door to their room without someone escaping. Once they had a taste of the outside world, they needed to see more. I tried to block them with a dust pan as I passed through the door, but they just jumped over it and through my arms. They are small, smart and fast.
Now that they are out and about, they are absolutely insane. I know there are only five of them, but if feels like fifty. The tiny but thunderous herd runs the length of the house over and over again. It's fun to be so free!
Of course they still have their quiet moments too -they do tire eventually. Even Flip, pictured above, who might just be the rowdiest one in the batch, eventually settles down.
