The Wonkas are famous! Go check out their write-up over at Your Daily Cute – and keep reading, if you’re not already a regular reader. There’s no such thing as too much Cute!
I found these pictures hiding on my hard drive. Gus isn’t in them, so they must be from about two weeks ago (Gus was originally not at all interested in eating canned food at snack time, and then suddenly one day he was. No reason a kitten can’t change his mind, is there?).
Fred was sweet enough to get up this morning and feed the Cookies. He’s one of those weirdo people who actually tends to get up EARLIER on the weekend than on work days, so it’s not like he wanted to sleep in anyway. I’m kind of a morning person, but NOT a 4:30 in the morning person, so since he was willing to do the 4:30 feeding, I got to sleep in ’til 6:15!
The Cookies are now eating canned and dry food, but also getting bottles, too. What we do is take canned food in to them at feeding time, leave the food in there for ten minutes, and then go back in with bottles. Usually by the time we go back in after ten minutes, the plates are cleaned off, and the babies are ready to slurp down their bottles. Fred left a bowl with formula covering the bottom of it after he fed them this morning, and by the time I went in there at 6:30, all the formula was gone.
(Of course, a lot of it was tracked across the floor, too. They’re still at the age where they need to stand in their food to eat it. Which is cute, but I suspect that when they’ve gone off to be adopted and I can get in there and tear the room apart to clean it, I’m going to need a pressure washer to blast all the ground-in food off the hardwood floors!)
2008: It’s hard to believe that volume of sound is coming from such a little thing!
2007: Snuggly brudders.
2006: I have a bunch of pictures of Maddy I haven’t cleared off my memory stick yet, so you’ll be seeing them for the next few days.
2005: “Take a picture Mom, quick! I can’t hold this pose for long!”
