hidey hole

I put a bunch of toys in the kitty room the other day. I think it was 6 little mice. I went in today to feed the itty bitties, and I realize there are no toys. Not one. I took a peek under the cabinet that houses all the kitty goodies, like the meds, and the other supplies, and I saw nothing. Then, I grabbed a stick, which in real life is the kitty charmer, and I put it under the file cabinet, and sort of scooped it back out. Well, out flew 4 mice, 2 old collars, with tags, 1 french fry boat the shelter gives to feed in (that I never really use), 1 eye dropper still in plastic wrap, and one paper ball. It was kitty crazyness! Of course, the paper ball belongs to Jet, and she made sure no one else got it. Nadine tried, but it was no use. The others chased everything for about 20 minutes, but finally settled down about 10 minutes after I left the room. It really sounded like the elephants were on the run tonight.

race for the finish

We are getting close to the finish line with these guys. The weight range is from 2lbs, to 2, 10 oz. Jet is the biggest, and Nadine is the smallest, but they eat like horses, and we are pushing for a return just before Thanksgiving, when I will be heading out of town. I hate to split them up, but if we have some not ready before I head out, I don't want to leave a house sitter here with all 5 of these guys. They are getting big, and 5 kittens can be a bit to clean up after.

In the mean time, they are quite entertaining.

Niles hides in the crock, everyones favorite hiding spot.

Ebony is on the lookout for Buck, as he chases the paper ball down the hall.

Ebony watches Buck from behind the tera cotta duck.

Nadine leaves because the duck has nothing to say.
