If you’re not following Challenger’s House on Facebook, you really ought to – yesterday there were a lot of updates on adopted Challenger’s House cats, including some of my very own former fosters. I love seeing them grown and so happy!
Chanandler Bong had a bit of a goopy eye. A few days of ointment helped a lot, and at this point I don’t think she’ll need a trip to the vet for it (yay). I love how the squinty eye makes her look skeptical, though.
I am utterly amazed at how well those babies are using the litter boxes. When I went into the room yesterday morning, I could see that they’d been used several times overnight, and they were in constant use during the day. Now, those kittens are not at 100% litter box usage – because they are, after all, still bayyyyyybees – but they’re doing much better than I would expect at this age.
Did I mention that they’re geniuses? Because I think they might be! No one’s tried to eat cat food yet, but I did see Princess Consuela toddle over to examine Regina’s plate of food yesterday.
This video of Regina Phalange and Bert Macklin is so adorable that I’ve watched it about 45 times. Don’t blame me if you go into sugar shock!
I realized as I was finishing up this post that I don’t have any un-shared pictures of Alice. Rather than go find her and snap a few pictures (it’s getting dark out and I am feeling lazy), I’ll reshare one of my favorite pictures. Remember Frog Alice from Halloween 2014?
2015: Are we sensing a theme here?
2014: Gracey and Kaleb.
2013: Eyeball check!
2012: Then she hits the ground and is like “Wait. I’m a CHICKEN. I can’t FLY. Hmph.”
2011: “There are no other cats. There is only Maggie.”
2010: “That’s right, I done it, copper. I done it, and I’d do it again. I was loopy on catnip, no judge in the world is going to convict me. They’ll send me to rehab, I’ll come out clean and UNREPENTANT. So get out those cuffs and slap ‘em on, I AIN’T SCARED.”
2009: (I like to think that maybe someone who lives down the road was sitting in front of their TV and was struck with the sudden urge to grab the camera and go upstairs, and that they said “But I don’t HAVE an upstairs!”)
