growing and going

I have been quite the slacker when it comes to blogging. I seem to have no time or energy lately!

Betty Lou Who stretches out
Things have been fairly smooth with this litter, with the exception of Mayor Augustus Mayhew who got a little upper respiratory infection last week, and had to take a trip to the vet. He has been on antibiotics for a week and a half, and seems to be symptom free now.

URIs mean AD. Mayor Augustus Mayhew can't  even wait until it's in the bowl
Everyone is at least 2 pounds now, and they are all going to be spending Thanksgiving at another fosters home, since I am heading to my parents house for Thanksgiving. They are all so close to weight, I may not be getting them back when I get home.

The Who's have been fun, but I have to say, it has been difficult working with them in my office. As they got older they loved to climb and trust me, that only escalates as they get older. I was working downstairs on my laptop the other day, and was sharing the screen with the office computer. I was proofing an e-mail I was about to send out, and all of a sudden, I saw ccccccccccc////////////jjjjjjj[[[[[[[[[[[[[[. I realized someone was on my desk, walking across my keyboard!

Sleeping on the back up drive
This is Mayor Augustus loves to lay in my plastic paper rack. He does this because my little back-up drive lives there, and it's really warm! He is so freaking' cute. They all are, but since he was sick, we had some bonding moments and so he and I are tighter than the others.

They are all going to be scooped up as soon as they go on view. Speaking of being on view, I checked on the website this morning, and I didn't see Cindy Lou Who, so I hope that means she was adopted! I will check next week about that.

The 3 light colored kittens did indeed keep their blue eyes. Martha Mae looks like she will have grey-green eyes. Too bad not the intense green eyes of Cindy Lou.

The resident cats are hanging in there. Living with little ones can be exhausting, and as you can see, Buck is terribly worn out.

Buck has it rough
He and Bosley have to scrounge for food, and fight the babies for attention. They even have to share a lap on occasion. Truly a hardship for them.

 Hopefully these guys will be in new homes by Christmas, enjoying free reign in their forever homes, and Bosley and Buck can rule the roost once again. At least until spring!

mama Who is going back!

Yes, Cindy Lou Who is went back to the shelter Monday. The babies are pretty much weaned, and she is anxious to be away from them. The other night I left the door to the kitty room open, with the big framed print in the doorway so she could get out, but the kittens could not (and Bentley couldn't get in). She ended in bed with me! Buck was not pleased! She didn't stay long, but she came back twice. She is gonna make someone a great cat!

In the mean time, the little Whos are growing. They will all got their shots this week too. They are all beautiful kittens, although not as friendly as some I have fostered. They're getting there, but I need to spend a little more time on Martha May Whovier. She is still pretty timid.

They are all happy to crawl on me and climb on my desk while I work. Almost every morning when I enter the kitty room, they are all 4 jammed on my chair, asleep in a pile. I think Cindy Lou had a hard time finding a place to get away from them. I rarely saw her let them nurse at all anymore, so I doubt they are missing her.

These little ones are some of the prettiest kittens I have fostered, and I need to get some more really good photos of them. I have been in catch up mode for a couple of weeks, so I plan to get some good quality photos this week. I think these guys are calendar worthy!
