out with the old, in with the new

Mr. Bean and Cia
I found out that the only one of the fab 5 that has not been adopted is Mr. Bean. The folks that adopted Boom and Joey initially wanted Bean, but Joey changed their minds when he "chose" them.

He and Cia shown here are still available for adoption. They look pretty cute together. Cia and 2 other kittens came and stayed with the Fab 5 for a couple of days before they all went to an adoption event, so Cia and Bean were already acquainted. We would love it if they got adopted together.

In the mean time, we have a couple of newcomers to the kittah room. After a week off, we now have 2 bottle babies in house. Meet Milo and Darby.

They are about 2 weeks old, and are getting quite the welcome. They have met Bentley and Pancito and today they got to come to work with me, and have been getting a lot of attention.

Milo is a bit smaller than his sister, and is the most vocal so far. Darby likes to play a little after she eats, and rolls over on her back and bats her brother. It's funny when they are this small, they seem to play in slow motion.
Oh Hai

They are both bottle babies so they will be coming with me to work for a week so they can be fed every 3-4 hours. Getting up at 2 AM to do the night feeding for now, but they will be starting on some slurry soon, and I can let them sleep through the night. They are so cute that it doesn't bother me to get up and feed them.

I love the video where Darby is eating. Those little ears are going 100 miles per hour!

Off they go

So, the fab five left for a weekend event last weekend, and never looked back. I am not sure who was adopted from that event...I was out of town. I told the powers that be that I was available as of Sunday to take anyone back, but they said they wanted to keep me available for bottle babies, so right now, I am kittah free.

Joey in a zone
Before the adoption event, Joey and Boom were adopted by a very nice couple from Australia. They actually came for Boom and Bean, but as it happens with animals, they choose you, not the other way around.

Joey was always the shy one, and although beautiful, I was worried he would be shunned because he was not lovable enough. Boy was I wrong. Joey climbed in Jodie's lap, and promptly fell asleep. That was all she wrote.

I got an e-mail from them, and some pix. They are loving those boys, and seem to be fitting in just fine.

For now, we have an empty room...but I doubt that will last long.
