We usually don't do any meet-and-greets until after the kittens are out of quarantine, but because of holiday weekend and travel plans, scheduling an appointment sooner rather than later worked better for all parties. So, last night the boys met their mama, and they are officially off the market! I'll tell you all more about her later, but she's great, and the Mittenflosses have a very bright future ahead.
Even though it always works out and our babies always find their families, I always have a huge sense of relief when everyone has a home. It will be fun to just sit back and enjoy the rest of their time with us, without any worries at all.
Of course, having to wait a few weeks for her babies will be torture their new mama. I'll do my best to provide plenty of pictures, stories and videos while she waits.
These two are a very dear pair, and the more we get to know them, the sweeter they seem to be. This morning, I was sitting on the ground with the boys, and was coaching them while they ate. They're not very focused eaters, so I have to constantly put them back in front of their dish.
After breakfast, Fielding, who's the more shy of the pair, came over and brushed his little body against my hand. I gave him some scratches on his chin and head and he leaned with all of his weight against me. You could hear his motor running strong, and in this state of bliss, the boy could hardly stand. Eventually he fell to his side, went belly-up, and wriggled while he happily received more scratches on his chest and tummy.
It makes me so happy to see him so happy.
