Weeeeeeee haaaave UPDATES!
First of all, Brian Boitano (now Prince Harry) and Picabo (now Harley Quinn)!
They are settling in, rearranging the house to their liking, and ate a bit more yesterday. Picabo (now Harley Quinn) is still a bit cautious and of course Brian (now Prince Harry) appears very relaxed and extremely curious. (Just as you said!)
Stacia is planning to set up a page for the two kittens, and of course I’ll share the link when it’s up and running.
(Thank you, Stacia!)
Secondly, Ohno and Tessa (now Heygo)!
Thank you for the most amazing kittens I’ve ever met and I’m beyond ecstatic to be their mom. To those who’ve expressed concern, please reassure them from us that we 1000% know that Ohno is the Baybee. Heygo is vying for that title too though. I’m sad we weren’t able to meet you but with our toddler, our trip schedule was a little all over the place to avoid meltdowns. Thank you for all you do in giving these kittens a great start in life and creating the most snuggly muffins. You are the best!
These pics are a combo of first night at hotel on the way home and today.
(Thank you, Danielle!)
Thirdly (and lastly for the updates today), yesterday when Brittany was petting Kristi (who was purring and arching and kneading), Katia came over to head-butt her! (Kristi, that is. Not Brittany.) This is a huge step forward, especially only a couple of days into the process, and maybe we can look forward to the day when Katia is shouldering her mother out of the way to get some petting of her own!
Did I say we have 8 kittens in the foster room? I meant 9! Okay, it only got up to 9 with the addition of this little muffinhead yesterday.
I think she’s about 7 weeks old. She was (we assume) dumped out in the country, and luckily someone spotted her and got her trapped pretty quickly. She is a timid little thing and isn’t entirely sure of humans, though if you’re able to pick her up, she starts purring pretty quickly. I brought her home and let her out of the carrier, and she skulked around the room.
An hour and a half after I got home with her, I walked in to find this.
Yeah, I think she’s gonna be fine.
