I got to visit my foster-in-waiting Belle Starr and her kittens on Monday, and didn’t get a chance to go through the pictures I’d taken until yesterday – so I think it’s safe to say that the kittens probably look completely different. They grow so fast at this age!
I walked into the room to find miniature cats with bright, curious eyes, tails straight up in the air, stomping around the room exploring and then returning to their safe space.
The girl – I don’t know how I’d describe her – she’s mostly gray and white, but has splashes of peachy-pink on her legs and hip. A dilute something? In any case, that girl was all OVER the room. She’s an explorer!
Video! Belle Starr and her kittens. You’ll excuse my baby talk. I can’t help it!
Nola came through her spay surgery just fine, and in fact we were home before noon. She came out of the carrier and went into the closet (she likes to hide behind the door sometimes; the kittens generally leave her alone when she’s back there). The girls caught scent of her, noticed that something was different about Mama, and donned their floof suits for 10 minutes or so. Andouille, oblivious, bounded around the room, playing.
By mid-afternoon Nola was seeking out her kittens for a cuddle. She wasn’t inclined to let them nurse, but I expect they’ll wear her down before too long.
Can I just tell you how relieved I am that neither Nola nor I have to suffer through her going into heat? SO RELIEVED. I bet she is, too!
