Shelly asked in yesterday’s comments When you’re bottle feeding one, do the others patiently wait their turn or is there clamoring for the milky?
Oh, there’s NO patience from the little ones. They want to eat, and they want to eat NOW, and they don’t see why they should have to wait. At first, we’d take them out of the cage one by one, potty them, feed them, and then take the next one out. But the ones left in the cage would just up the volume, and they’d stand there and scream “HEY I DON’T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS BUT I HAVE NOT EATEN YET!”, and it’s painful to listen to. So now we open the cage, each grab a kitten, and feed them. The other three climb out of the cage onto my lap and Fred’s and howl and whine and act like they are one second from starving right to death until it’s their turn. Once they’ve all eaten, I potty them, and then we offer them seconds. It’s not perfect – perfect would be having five people to each feed and potty a kitten immediately, of course – but it works out well enough.
And look – a video!
“HELLO HI DID I MENTION I WAS HUNGRY?”
With the flea scare last week (which turned out to be less than nothing – I haven’t seen a single flea since Tuesday, thank god), I went around the house, gathered up the cat beds, and washed them all. Then I tossed them on the floor in the dining room until I could find the time to redistribute them properly. It took Terry about 10.2 seconds to find the pile o’ beds and curl up in one of them.

Gus is a gentleman and didn’t feel the need to take part in today’s slurpathon. He has MANNERS.
