Freedom!

DSC_0859

On Tuesday, quarantine was up for our little Gibsons, and they were set free.    Of course they were thrilled to get out of the confines of their room, and explore the rest of the house.

They love having the big rug in the living room to use as a wrestling mat, and all day long it's one match after another.    It's endless entertainment for the kitten participants and the human audience too.

They've met Charlene, and are at ease with her.  No huffing or puffing, hissing, or tails swishing.  

Charlene perches, and watches them from the back of her favorite chair or the windowsill .   On occasion, one of the Gibsons will come say hello to her and receive a few licks on their head.


The kittens were running wild and playing hard this morning, but now are all piled up under the bed.  There's an air show today, and all the noise has everyone nervous.

And it's only going to get worse, once the fireworks begin.

They might be scared, but they'll be safe.

Please be sure all your critters are inside and safe too.

  6. Sandy Sandy, good luck to you and bless you for your efforts. I seem only to (thankfully) get the the toms, which promptly go to the vets for blood work and neutering. Some move in permanently, others don't. Glad the newest batch get freedom on independence day... Or close to it. And to all your blog readers who have served, THANK YOU for your service. And thank you Laurie, Craig and 'Bean, for all you do for the little ones.

  10. Due to the storm on Sunday we had power failures this week. The county was declared a disaster area and the fireworks last night got canceled. Power came back yesterday morning so we're keeping cool. But many people in this town are still without power.

    Congrats on making it half way to your goal!

  12. You painted such a lovely word picture of the babies all wrestling all day on the living room rug. Did you by any chance manage to get any video? It's always so nice to not only imagine the fun the kittens are having, but to actually see it!
