Not much going on over the weekend at itty bitty central. Sierra and the babies are doing fine. Sierra actually could use a bath, but she is her normal, patient self, watching out for the itty bitties, and bumping up against me for attention. The little ones have mastered eating canned food out of the bowl. Not even mixing it with formula anymore, and they gobble it down. Mamas are better at tough love than I am. I keep giving them the bottle until they go off to college.

Kelsey bellies up to the food bowl.

We had some visitors Saturday who wanted to come see the little ones. Of course, they were all won over by the preciousness of them. We are already working on their "Shelter Training." If you don't know what that means, I will explain. As soon as the itty bitties see someone come in, they run to them, and climb on them. When they are in shelter cages, with all the other cats that are on view, they see someone come in, and they immediately stick their paws out, and try to get their attention. This of course gets the prospective kitten adopter to look more closely at the cuteness that is dripping from these itty bitties that were trained specifically for this purpose. Once they spend a few moments with these kittens, all of the others will fade to the background, and the trained kittens get adopted first. This is our goal. None of our fosters will languish in a shelter! They will know how to work the crowd!

Kelsey plans a sneak attack.

Halicy always looks a little bewildered.

I don't think anyone will be able to resist these itty bitties. They are beautiful, and they will be well trained by the time they go back for adoption, when they are 2 1/2 lbs. Yep, plenty of time to refine the training!

Time for some Smackdown!

Dot in the middle of the fray.

Sierra is her usual patient self.

Sage licks her chops, waiting for someone to come into her territory.

Oh, I almost forgot! Check out the Bottle Rockets! They are doing great over at
