I have an update! But first, my favorite picture of the kittens in question, way back in mid-September.
That’s right, it’s the BeeBees – left to right: Skinny Pete, Badger and Combo.
And here they are now:
You’ve noticed, I’m sure, that there’s an extra kitten there, a long-haired gray kitten right in the middle of the bunch. That gorgeous girl is Twig, who was found by a Challenger’s House volunteer in the woods. She needed to be around other kittens to teach her how to kitten, so she joined the other three. She’s the same age as they are, and Kathie reports that they integrated well. She gets a little intimidated when the other three get rowdy, but otherwise they get along great.
Kathie also said that the four kittens have a rave when the sun comes up everyday. I forgot to turn the light out one night and evidently they went all night. The boys are the biggest snugglers. The girls like short snuggles and right back to play.
Can you even BELIEVE how gorgeous those kittens are growing up to be? After looking at those pictures, I had to go find a kitten to squeeze.
Thank you for the pictures and the update, Kathie, and give those babies kisses from all of us!
Adele and Pink spent Monday night out of the foster room. Adele spent most of the night in the window bed in my room, coming over a few times to snuggle with me.
Pink spent the entire night draped across my arm, purring loudly the whole time. I told Susan yesterday that Adele is a companion – she’ll snuggle with me from time to time, but for the most part, she just wants to be near me (or Fred; she’s not picky). Whatever I’m doing, she’s nearby; even if she isn’t actively snoopervising, she wants to keep an eye on what I’m doing. Pink, on the other hand, is an accessory. She loves to be held, picked up and snuggled, and if I’m at rest, she wants to be on my lap or up against me.
The best part about these two is that Adele has dropped the dramatics, and they’ve started playing!
They chase each other back and forth, they wrestle, they bat toys around together. Adele likes to just sit and watch Pink play, and Pink doesn’t mind being watched. I wouldn’t say they’re best friends (at least not yet), but they’re certainly buddies.
(I apologize for the lack of Pink pictures in this post – I had a busy day yesterday, and didn’t get a chance to go through the numerous pictures I downloaded from the camera. Those playing pictures are from yesterday, taken with my iPhone.)
Sometimes it’s just better not to ask why.
I kid. That picture is from last year, and was lost in my “Stefan pics to post” folder until now. We were having an issue at that time with Alice peeing in boxes we left in the kitchen, so I put that litterbox there… and she used it. For a couple of weeks, I’d keep a clean pee pad in the box and switch it out after I saw that she’d used it. Some investigation (using webcams and my fine detecting abilities) showed that Corbie was harassing Alice whenever she’d go to use the litter box. Adding another litter box to the laundry room, angled so that Corbie couldn’t sneak up on her, solved the issue. Judging by the fresh catnip on the rug, we were probably having a ‘nipfest, and Stefan was making sure I knew he appreciated it.
By the way, it is the opinion of both Fred and I that Pink looks very much like Stefan and Stompers.
