That picture immediately reminded me of this picture from 2005:
Before Hemlock and Juniper went back to Petsmart, I managed to get one single shot with all six of the kittens present and looking in my general direction! From left to right: Juniper, Sodapop (in the back), Hemlock (with one leg in the basket), Two-Bit, Ponyboy, and Darry.
Hemlock and Juniper went back to Petsmart Saturday morning with no problems. I mean, they weren’t thrilled to be back (Juniper came out of the carrier, went directly into their cage, and gave me a dirty look), but they were okay. No adoptions on Saturday, but adoptions have been happening more often on Tuesdays, so maybe tomorrow will be their lucky day. Fingers crossed!
The Greasers are getting their last vaccinations tomorrow, so if there’s room for them, they’ll be headed off to Petsmart this week. If not, they’ll stay here a while longer ’til room comes available. We’ll see!
When we got home, after dropping off the kittens and running errands, we put the screen door at the bottom of the stairs and opened the door to the foster room. As I expected, Two-Bit was the first one out the door, followed pretty quickly by Sodapop. Darry darted out, looked around, and ran back in. It took Ponyboy several hours to get up the nerve to peek out, and by Sunday afternoon he was nervously joining Two-Bit and me for a short nap. I suspect, given another day or two, I’ll have all four piled up on the bed with me.
2015: Kittens usually smell like raw peanuts. These guys, however, smell like the broth from corn chowder: milky, buttery, and salty-sweet.

2005: I wouldn’t say that Sugarbutt’s butt is at 100%, but it’s so much better than it was last Thursday that I’m not complaining.
