Can you recommend any plushy toys that are not Squeaky/electric and do NOT HAVE CATNIP? We had a nice snake that the girls loved and it got shredded!
I told Julie the only kind of toy that immediately came to mind was this pack of long-tailed mice I got from Amazon last year – they don’t have catnip in them, and Jake LOVES them. I’m certain there are other plush-type toys that don’t have catnip, but my mind is blank at the moment – anyone out there got suggestions? Please chime in!
I know you know what you are doing, but please spend extra time with Carli & Ruthy if they are skittish. I have a 3 year old that to this day will not let me hold her. I got her at 8 weeks and she loves me to death. Follows me around the house to the point of almost being annoying. Loves belly rubs and she has to be brushed everyday. If I don’t she can be quite vocal. She just won’t let me pick her up or hold her. Last time she had to go to the vet I was a bloody mess. I wouldn’t trade her for a million dollars, but some people wouldn’t like that.
Yep, they’re getting extra time and attention; we’re handling them as much as we can. Carli is definitely coming around (she climbed into my lap yesterday); I may have to step it up a bit with Ruthy, though.
Is Ozzy the exception to the typical ornj laid-back surfer dude, or has he just seemed more zoomy because in contrast, his particular set of siblings has been (understandably) more reticent than foster-room-born kittens?
Oh, he’s actually pretty laid-back and SO very confident. They still have so much energy at this age; I think he’ll chill out as he gets older (when he’s not zooming around, he does chill out in my lap; he’s going to make a good lapcat for someone, for sure.)
Has a name formed for the new digs, yet? The Breezy Bunker?
I’ve been calling it Crooked Acre (no “s”) since it’s definitely crooked (the floors are a bit uneven) and it’s just the one acre!
Every time you post a picture of the elusive Dewey, I repeat in my head the old joke, “The law firm of Dewey, Cheatem and Howe.”
That would be an excellent naming theme for a trio of kittens!
Throw Back Thursday: this video is from February of this year, when Canasta was still pregnant (we had another 10 days or so before she gave birth). I had no idea I was even making a video (I was taking pictures.) The end, where I lift her down off the shelf CRACKS ME UP. Her calm, curious little face as I lift her down – CAREFUL NOT TO PUT PRESSURE ON HER BELLY – and her little feet and that big ol’ belly and my GROAN as I lift her entire weight is killing me. So much that I had to add it in again in slow motion at the end.
Franco Fondue – Molly Marinara’s kitten, orange and white with a narrow strip of white up his forehead – was adopted a few days ago and joined a home that includes kitty sister Miso. He’ll be known as Fondue in his new home. Here’s the video where you can see him grow while we fostered him.
