Is Marcia the only calico in the Bunch? And golly, Corbie is ridiculously handsome.
She is! The rest of them are either brown tabby (Greg and Peter) or mostly white with brown tabby patches (Jan, Bobby, Cindy).
cute kittys! but in the Brady Bunch its odd to our ears that Marsha is spelt Marcia (MaCEEuh as we pronounce it) they are 2 different names! that always confused me….
When I put collars on the Brady kittens before I took them to the vet to be tested, Fred saw Marcia’s collar and mocked me for spelling it incorrectly. Why on earth he would ever think that I don’t know how to spell Marcia Brady’s name given my love of all things Brady, I do not know. All I know is that’s how the creators of the show spelled it, so for a large part of my life I thought “Marcia” was pronounced “Marsha” and only came to realize there was a different pronunciation as an adult. I think someone better take it up with Sherwood Schwartz!
Those poor little babes with diarrhea! My poor boy (the one Buster reminds me of) is at the vet’s right now on a drip and antibiotics; he has had diarrhea for a few days and got very dehydrated. And he is a strapping great, otherwise bursting with vitality, nearly 3 year old. How I WISH I had took him to the vet yesterday! What I’m wondering is, how do these tiny babies manage not to get dehydrated when my huge boy did? Is it because they have wet food? He only has dry food, even though he’s probably not eaten much.
You know, even though they all (except for Cindy) had bad diarrhea, they all continued to eat and drink really well. They never got dehydrated, and we’re definitely lucky that they didn’t! I have never given fluids subcutaneously to kittens, and though I’m sure I’ll have to eventually, I’d rather not start by having to do it with six little kittens!
(I do remember that episode. Does that age me?)
I don’t think it does! I was actually only a year old when The Brady Bunch premiered, and I’m pretty sure I never saw a single episode of it when it was originally airing. All my Brady Bunch viewing came from reruns when I was a bit older, and I’m going to assume the same for you. 🙂
Guess who’s feeling SO MUCH BETTER, and in fact are now released from their cage into general population all the live-long day?
Our wee Bobby and Jan Brady, that’s who! I let them out of their cage yesterday morning, and they spent the day out and about with their brothers and sisters. Until mid-afternoon, there were no accidents, and even that one accident could have been prevented if I’d put Jan in the litter box when I walked into the room. Once I convinced her that no, Jan, you really DO need to use the litter box, she did, and there were no more accidents. I’d say they aren’t 100% – their litterbox leavings aren’t what they oughta be – but they’re doing SO much better than they were this time last week.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the diarrhea actually goes away in a few more days. That would make me very happy – and I imagine that the kittens would be THRILLED to have me no longer running around after then with baby wipes to wipe their behinds. Oh, you should SEE the looks I get from them! (Believe me – I’d be perfectly thrilled to not to do it, too!)
