Little Ones Are Now Officially "Big"
Yesterday I loaded up the Dinichi Family into the kitty carrier and we headed down to the Humane Society for weigh-ins and a round of vaccines. The kittens were so good in the car and I literally didn't hear a single peep until we turned into the shelter parking lot.
When we popped open the carrier in the foster room, the photo above is what we saw -- four little scaredy-kittens clinging to the back wall of the carrier.
We fished them out, one at a time, and everyone had their turn on the scale. Tegan was the smallest, and weighed in at 2.1 pounds. Nicholas was the largest at 2.6 pounds.
They all did great with their shots and seemed happy to get a little loving from Sarah, who's in charge of the foster program.
SO, yes, everyone has now officially made weight! They're on the surgery schedule and soon our Dinichi's will be departing!
They were so teeny when they moved in, so their stay has been longer than average. We've witnessed many kitten milestones, watched them grow, and saw their personalities take shape.
It's going to be very hard to say goodbye to this dear batch.
But that's part of the deal, isn't it?
Thankfully, they all have stellar families anxiously awaiting the arrival of their dear kittens, and knowing that, makes letting go of them possible.
