Last summer – you may recall – we had an all-black litter of kittens named the Swimmers. One of those Swimmers – the only girl – was Torres. This is what she looked like back then:
And also this:
And shortly before she went off to Petsmart, she looked like this:
She was adopted in November. Her name is now Sasha, and here she is, all grown up and gorgeous as can be!
(Thanks for letting me share Sasha’s pics, Goose!)
Things are going well in the foster room. Privet isn’t growling nearly as much at the other kittens, but there’s still plenty of hissing going on when she floomps too energetically in their direction and startles them. The day before I brought Spruce, Cypress and Juniper home, I said something to Fred about how docile Privet is.
Well. She is not docile AT ALL anymore. She races around that room like a crazy little ball of fur. She’s kind of like a lab puppy in a kitten suit.
So, I could have sworn I said how old these kittens are in Friday’s post, but apparently it totally slipped my mind.
Spruce, Cypress, and Juniper have a guesstimated date of birth of 4/30/16, which makes them just over 12 weeks old.
Privet has a guesstimated date of birth of 5/18/16, which makes her nearly 10 weeks old.
Hemlock has a guesstimated date of birth of 5/28/16, which makes him just over 8 weeks old.
Oh. Wait. Did I forget to tell you about Hemlock? Gosh, and here we are, all out of time. I guess I’ll have to tell you all about him tomorrow! Here’s a picture of him to tide you over ’til then.
Spoiler: he’s possibly the biggest lovebug EVER.
