In case you didn’t see it on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter/Tumblr on Saturday, this happened:
It’s nice when kittens get adopted that quickly! Shelton, Levine and Nubbs are still there, and doing well. Kathie and I were both concerned about Nubbs, but Teresa reported that he was out and exploring Saturday night, and so were the other two, so that was good to hear. Hopefully they’ll go home soon, too.
Also on Saturday, Teresa – Challenger’s House volunteer extraordinaire as well as mom to Orlando, Pickles and Hobo – adopted Rizzoli, who was one of Kathie’s fosters and who had spent far too long at Petsmart. She wormed her way into Teresa and Kevin’s hearts, and they couldn’t resist any longer. Reports are that things are going great, and Orlando has extended the Paw o’ Friendship under the door to Rizzoli. TOO CUTE.
There you go, there are some nipples. It’s hard to tell from that picture, but the fur is starting to recede from around her nipples, and they’re getting darker. I still think we’ve got a while to go, though (but I think we’ve established that I am fairly clueless about predicting when babies will be born).
I weighed her the other day; she was 8 pounds 11 ounces the day I got her, and just at 9 pounds on Saturday. So she’s gaining weight – she’s also showing more interest in food. I added some canned food to her plates of baby food yesterday, and she didn’t eat it all, but she ate some of it, which is more interest than she’s shown before. She’s also showing interest in getting a handful of treats at bedtime. Still not the voracious appetite I’m used to from mama kitties, but that could change.
