Bye Bye to KIttens

Well George and the other boy kitten were both adopted today by people at the warehouse. It was so hard to see them go but I knew we could not keep all the kittens and I know they have good homes. I am still a little sad about it though! Gracie is a little lonesome though. I gave her a stuffed toy to curl up with.

Last night I took Gracie & George to Knit Night were the ladies surprised me with a "Kitten Shower". All the attention wore Gracie out.

The Dears made the kitten sweaters, a blankie and bought them lots of toys. Good thing too. The shower items will come in handy because this morning my phone rang at 6:30am. It was Bob.

“Guess what?”
“You found another kitten?”
“Guess again.”
“You found 2 kittens?”
“Guess again.”

Yes, they found 3 more kittens in the warehouse this morning. That brings the total up to 5. The record for most kittens in a litter is 15 so I REALLY hope Momma Cat is not an overachiever!

Luckily 2 were adopted by one of the salespeople so only 1, the frightened one in the 3rd shot came home with Bob.

George and the new kitten are both happy with solid food. Gracie is still bottle feeding.

Uh Oh!

I got a call from Bob this morning. They found Gracie's sibling in the warehouse this morning.

We ran him by the vet and its a boy. Think we'll call him "George". Gracie seems happy to see him.

Her Name is Gracie

I swore I would not get attached, but her name is Gracie

Yesterday, I got a call from Bob. Seems they found a small kitten in the warehouse, just bebopping down one of the aisles. No sign of Momma Cat or any siblings. Pretty lucky not to have been squished by one of the lifts! Bob is now regretting telling me that. I came by on my lunch hour and picked up the kitty ion a box and stopped at Western feed to get some KMR and a bottle and took it back to work.

Bottle feeding a kitten is not as easy as it sounds. Nor is waking up at 3am to feed a hungry mewling kitten. I am trying very hard not to name it or get too attached.

Today I took it to the vet and confirmed that "It" is a "She". Vet says she looks pretty healthy but gave her dewormer to be on the safe side. She seems to be settling in a bit. We are keeping her in a box in the bedroom. The other cats have come in while I have been feeding her, sniffed her, hissed and ran away. Honey Bun, however, was quite interested in her. So much so that she had to sleep outside last night because she would not stay away from her.

We are hoping to find a home for her before I get too attached.
