A few people have asked how the kittens are doing without Maddy. They’re fine – they seem a little puzzled, as though something is missing and they’re not sure what it is, but for the most part they’re acting about the same. Maddy wasn’t really spending much time with the kittens recently – pretty much ignored them. She’d let them nurse occasionally, but she wasn’t producing much milk and she certainly wasn’t letting them nurse as much as they wanted to.
Last evening, I delivered Mama Maddy to Michelle’s house (Michelle is who I foster under). We like to keep kittens with their mama ’til at least 12 weeks old (these kittens are 10 weeks old as of yesterday), but Maddy was showing signs of stress, and I believe she was ready to be done being a mama. The kittens don’t seem to have noticed that she’s gone and are doing well. I will, of course, update y’all on Maddy if there are any updates to be shared.
(With apologies to R.E.M.)
That’s her on the scratcher
That’s her in the spot-light
Losing her suspicions
Oh no, she’s purred toooo much
(She hasn’t purred enough….)
Sleepy babies… and is Ozzy Da BAYbee? Maybe! (This video was made before Maddy went to Michelle’s house yesterday, obviously.)
