Sorry, no Crooked Acres pics today – it was overcast and rainy for the better part of the last week, so I never did go out with the camera. I should have better luck next week!
The Pickles are now spayed and neutered, have had all their vaccinations, and are ready to go when space comes available at Petsmart. Adoptions have been a bit slow, so it could be a while. We’ll see!
We put paper collars on the Pickles Monday night with their names written on them, so they’d know at the clinic who was who. Polly and Percy, who are accustomed to wearing collars, didn’t notice anything was different. Petey, Joe, and Magoo, on the other hand, tried to outrun their collars, and then tried to scratch them off, before forgetting that they were there. Tuesday morning when I opened the door to the guest bedroom to grab them and put them in carriers, I found that Petey was collarless. I still haven’t found it – he probably slipped it off and hid it somewhere, hoping that I wouldn’t notice – but he didn’t fight me when I put a new collar on him.
They were glad to see me yesterday morning when I showed up to pick them up, and when I got them home they came flooding out of their carriers, then stretched, ate, and acted as though nothing had happened. Polly was perhaps a little sleepier than usual during the day, but by evening they were all running around playing.

2007: Their story is that they’re 5 sisters, about five months old, and they were, I believe, the kittens of a feral cat.
2006: So stop asking why, you stinkin’ peoples.
