LOOK WHO IT IS!
On the left there, do you recognize her??
That is our sweet Molly Hatchet from late last year, remember? Here, here she is from last November, the day I got her:
Remember how scared and feral she was, and how I thought she was NEVER going to come around – and then when she did, she was the BIGGEST love bug?
I was super worried that when she went to Petsmart, she’d revert to her scaredy-cat, practically-feral ways, but she adapted really well, and then she was adopted. And I have an update about her, obviously!
Jane says: My name is Jane and I adopted Molly in January this year so that my 2-year old female tabby, Fuzzy, could have a kitty friend. I just wanted to share some updates on this little lady.
She is just the sweetest ever and is doing very well. She took a few days to warm up, of course, but adapted very quickly and loves to jump on and explore everything. She absolutely loves to cuddle, and she usually falls asleep on top of me or with Fuzzy and is quick to run up for pets (and/or kisses! ^_^). Even when she and Fuzzy don’t sleep together, they like to be near each other.
Isn’t that the BEST news? Thank you so much for the update, Jane, and I’m glad to see that she still has those AMAZING huge ears!
The lineup! From left to right we have Shecky, Belushi (with his head under Shecky), Skelton, Rickles, Louis, and Gilda. You can only see a wee bit of her, but Roseanne is laying under Skelton and Louis’s heads, serving as their pillow.
Most of the umbilical cords have come off – I walked into the room and found a little pile of them, as though they popped off all at once – and the next step will be eyes opening. It should be a few more days before that happens, but it can start at 7 days, so maybe Thursday morning I’ll walk in and find that they’ve all gotten their eyeballs and are glaring at me.
I weighed them yesterday, and at 5 days old, their weights ranged from 5 7/8 (Gilda and Skelton) to 6 3/4 (Rickles) ounces. I’ll put a chart on their page – when I get it done, hopefully later today – so we can watch ’em grow. I haven’t weighed Lucy yet, but I will in the next few days.
Everyone is doing great – Lucy spends most of her time in with the kittens, but is quick to come out if she hears me coming into the room (especially if I’ve got food for her!) I handle the kittens every now and then, and Lucy doesn’t worry about it. I mean, if they get too screamy she’ll come over and give me A Look. But yesterday I had the two buff kittens on a cat bed, trying to get pictures of their faces side by side and she came over, looked them over, licked one of them, and then told me to carry on.
Nursing video! I swear, I could sit and watch them nurse all day long.
