All is Well

I picked the kitties up around 4:30 yesterday. They were all awake, and excited to get out of their kitten cubbies.    Everyone did JUST fine.   There were no complications at all.

Francis, who works in the cattery, has had a crush on sweet Cedric since the start, so she snuck in a couple of time during the day to give him a little love.  Lucky boy.   Lucky Francis.

When they go they got home they ran and ran all over the house.   They had the sense to keep it on the ground, and played a good game of soccer with a mylar ball.   No one seemed too interested in leaping or climbing, which is a good thing for post-surgery kittens.

They turned in early last night, and were clamoring to get our of their room this morning.

They scarfed down their breakfast and have returned to their soccer match.

Pheona's shaved, spotted belly is just about the cutest thing I've seen.  If I can get her to flip over long enough for a photo, I'll be sure to share it with you.

Our little Gibsons sure have grown up. They are starting to look a lot less kitten-y, and are now looking like tiny grown-up cats. As sad as it will be to say goodbye to this fabulous bunch, I'm excited for them to start the next chapter of their lives.

  2. I can't resist Cedric either! I just want to scritch that chin and kiss that forehead.

  3. Poor little PhePhe. I recognize that face. It's the wistful "I just got snipped" face. But she'll be over it soon and back to her wide-eyed, goofy little kitten self. :)

    1. I thought her expression said "Last time I showed my belly I got a COLD spot on it. No way, no how...not rolling over!"

      She is a little beauty, though.

  4. Good to hear our Little Gibsons did so well with the dreaded snipping. They are a hearty bunch. Beautiful and sweet, lucky forever- home-families who get these darlins.

  5. They are lucky kittens to have had a start at Chez Butterbean! Extra scritchies for them today, please.

  6. Oh yes, spotty shaved belly pics, please! Such a beautiful and charming litter of kittens. I always think the most recent batch is the cutest ever, but I think I will really miss these Gibsons.

  7. Aw, they are both so sweet. The look on Pheona's face is precious and I just love her little feet tucked in underneath - acting like such a little lady. Does Cedric still have his smokey jacket? He's such a gorgeous boy! Great to hear that all the Gibsons came through their surgery OK!

  8. If I didn't all ready have an IBKC kitty, I'd be breaking down the door to grab Pheona!

    1. There's *always* room for one more! Cats, especially members of the IBKC, are like potato chips: you can't have just one. *G*

  9. Pheona looks particularly gorgeous in her most recent photo. I just want to scoop her up and love on her. Cedric is, as always, absolutely adorably gorgeous and I want to scoop him up and love on him as well. And Prince Charles, because any kitty in need of a furever home needs lots of loving to keep their spirits up.
