Francesca, Gus, Nacho, Lalo and Saul are 3 weeks old today! (Which makes Mike 17 days old.) They are SO CLOSE to leaving that crate but don’t quite have the nerve to make the first step. It’ll be very very soon, though. Their teeth have come in, they’re very interested in the world around them, and they’ve taken to licking me when I pick them up (which is like being kissed by angels. I expect the licking to last until they get the biting thing figured out, which will also be any ol’ time now.)
Former fosters Periwinkle (formerly Bert Macklin – the all-gray cutie in the back) and Patches (formerly Art Vandelay) are just as cute as ever. They were part of our Fakers litter (mama Regina Phalange and their siblings Chanandler Bong, Ken Adams, Princess Consuela and Susie) and came to us to foster in March 2016 when the kittens were 3 days old. And now – boom! Just like that! – they’re 6 years old. Time certainly flies.
Please listen up, ’cause Saul’s got things to say!
I know ALL kittens love their mama, but I still love to see how excited they get when they see her… even when they’re not hungry!
