Firstly, Fiona went to my good buddy Gord and Shirley's house on Thursday night. Mom has received a couple of updates and it sounds like she is settling in quite well. Of course, she's fallen in love with my good buddy Gord. This is no surprise as all animals love him. Ike has hissed at Fiona a couple of times. We already know that Ike can be a bit cranky and he's already lived with Fiona for a few days while he was staying with us so we know he'll come around. Shirley has said that Fiona has wandered around meowing a few times. Undoubtably she is looking for her babies, but she did that here too. She would call for her babies and they would ignore her so she shouldn't be too stressed that she's calling for them in another house and no one is coming.
Secondly, Seamus has been adopted!! She will be leaving shortly to go to her forever home. The couple adopting her are very nice and I definitely approve of them. They played with Seamus for a long time yesterday and boy was she tired. Seamus is going to have lots of fun playing at their house and will have two cat siblings to play with as well.
Lastly, we have new fosters! And there's a whole bunch of them!! Nine kittens arrived on Wednesday night; a litter of four and a litter of five. The litter of four are about 7 weeks old, but the litter of 5 are only about 4-5 weeks old. They were only supposed to be here temporarily until permanent foster homes could be found but they were all supposed to be older. This would allow them to be divided up into smaller groups to go to other foster homes. When Mom saw how little the one litter was she decided that they needed to stay together. On Thursday night a couple came to pick up two of the older kittens. Kelly has a magic touch because up until when she tried, one of the younger kittens hadn't eaten anything. Mom also decided that the younger kittens were following the older kittens lead on stuff so perhaps the remaining two older ones should stay to help the younger ones learn. Needless to say, it's a bit crazy in the cat room! The kittens miss their Moms a lot and are desparate for snuggles. They are all eating, but Mom says she'd like to see them to eat and drink more. And learn to use the litter box!
Here's a video of the kittens the first night they arrived.
Mom has some more pictures but her cameras are in with the kittens and they're all sleeping. Mom says she's learned one valuable lesson that all those Moms out there with 2 legged babies already know...never wake a sleeping baby!
