I imagine ear-cleaning is a very time-consuming process for this crew.
It’s an all-day process!
Remember way back when you wrote about feeding the Permanent Residents egg yolks? Were they cooked, or raw (the egg yolks, not the kitties)? I was making egg salad for my lunch today, and 2 of my boys were going ape-s**t over it, looking at me like a was a lame zebra ready to be taken down. I gave them some of the cooked egg, and they were in heaven.
I used to give them raw egg yolks, but I know that several of them (most notably Stefan) like them cooked, too! I’ve always heard that the fat in the egg yolk helps to make their coats shiny. I don’t give them egg yolks any more, though, because they’ve decided they don’t care for them any longer. Brats!
Do the tailless kitties have any trouble landing on their feet when leaping around?
Nope, not at all – in fact, they seem even a little more graceful to me! (Well, that’s true for Mariette – Ferdinand is just a big ol’ lunk).
Is there a blinking light or something on that camera that the kittens think they have to kill?? That was the best thing ever!
There’s not a blinking light – there are infrared lights around the outside of the camera. What I’ve noticed, though, is that both times they went after the camera, it was after we’d lost internet briefly. When the cameras come back online, they make a very faint beep sound, and I’m betting that that noise caught their attention.
As I watched the video and saw the car drive by on the road in front of the house, all I could think was how crazy it would be as a driver if your lights caught the eyes of six kittens peering out the window at you (not to mention those of any permanent residents who may be looking out of first-floor windows!). Creeeeeeepy…
We turn a light on in that room when it gets dark in the evening (which we then turn off at bedtime), and we don’t pull the shades on the windows, so often I wonder if people driving by notice cats on the cat tree or walking across the window sill!
Robyn, with all your pictures, you do provide such a service to adopters, chronicling their new family members’ first days – – a baby album, if you will (being the fifth child, as pictures got fewer and fewer as the family grew, my baby album almost starts with my kindergarten photo – LOL!). I especially love the new kitten photos compared to the photos taken as they get ready for adoption. Growing on that, take a look at 22 Adorable Before and After Pictures – – will MELT YOUR HEART!!
I LOVE those pictures!!!
