boys is boys

And the boys are still here. All 3 of the Island Girls have been adopted. Belize and Aruba went together, and Jamaica was adopted a week later. Inspector has been ready for a week or so, but Gadget is still very afraid. I have to "catch" him to hold him. Once I have him, he is pretty good. I can get him to purr (much more readily when Inspector is around, purring himself) and sleep, but as soon as he sees a chance, he will bolt. I am very worried he will never get adopted. I was hoping someone would take the 2 of them together, but I sorta want to keep him another week. Pretty sure if I do, Inspector will be scooped up, and Gadget will be left all alone. So, anyone want a couple of kittens, one that is sweet and loving, and the other...well, needs some help.

Too cute to be afraid.

Bosley has taken to leaping over the framed poster that I have blocking the door into my office, and hanging with the boys. He will engage them sometimes, but they really are very interested in him. Gadget gets much more bold when Boz is in there. He is less worried about me than he is getting close to Bosley.

I figure I have a a few more days to try to get Gadget less afraid. They are supposed to go back Monday. Would not have any problem keeping them both another week, but I got a call today...Picked up a mamma and 4 babies. The babies are about 3 days old. They are now residing in the old kitty room, which is now the guest room. I don't want to keep them there for too long, but they can't move into the office until the boys are gone, and I clean the place up.

I don't have any pictures yet, but I will plan to take a bunch tomorrow. I will do my best to get them up by the weekend. In the meantime, enjoy the movies!
