Bye Bye to Jolie and Kanya

At the shelter, before heading home
Jolie and Kanya went back to the shelter yesterday to be spayed today! My niece is still interested in adopting 2 kittens, but I am going to try to convince them that they should get boy cats instead of girls.

I know, I know. That's not fair to girl kittahs. And one of the best cats in the world was my little girl Pepper. But we have 4 staff cats now, and all but one are boy cats. And all but one are loving, sweet cats. Guess which one has ugly mood swings? ;) Ripley has her moments where she will take a swipe at you. Never have I had this issue with my boy cats.

Jessica in mid hiss at Jammy
My niece had a bad experience as a child with a cat. Miss Kitty was similar to Ripley in that she would attack at any given moment. You might think that would scar her for life, but she still wants a couple of kittens. ;).
The boys look around

In case you are worried about Jessica being all alone, don't. She is still here, but she now has 2 little roommates. Jimmy and Jammy. (No, I did NOT name them.)

Jimmy checks out the new digs
They are pretty cute little guys and happily ignoring all of Jessica's hissing. She occasionally forgets they are interlopers and plays a little before she remembers she doesn't like them and hisses again. I figure by tomorrow the hissing will be all done.

Pancito update: Pancito went back Monday for a retest and his platelets went from a low of 28000 up to 52000. Not near where they need to be, but moving in the right direction! Another test on Saturday, hopefully with good results and we can wean him off the steroids. Yay!

I have had four of each sex at one time and I can tell you from my experience that it is the girls that tend to be more in your face and attention seeking where as boys tend to be more 'look at me and what I can do" attention seeking..

but after all the years of fostering, I've come to the conclusion that it is more based on the cat's personality then their gender. Some are lap surfers, some are climbers, some are trouble makers and some are not. "tortie" kitties tend to have mood swings where as 'orange kitties" tend to be lovers.. but there too the stereotype doesn't always hold true.

Good luck to the girls! WE know your Niece will find just the right kittens!

It's so hard to tell if it's going to be a girl or a boy who gets fussy and hissy.. I hope your niece gets the exact right kittens for her!
Glad the puppy is doing better, hope his counts keep going up to where they belong!
