The many faces of sweet little bunny Terry.


Contemplative.

I weighed the kittens over the weekend – three of them are a few ounces over 2 pounds, one of them (Terry) is exactly 2 pounds, and Sookie and Lafayette are just under 2 pounds. So there’ll be no spaying or neutering this week – I want to have all of them at least three or four ounces over 2 pounds before I take them off to be spayed and neutered, because I don’t completely trust my weighing method (I put a bowl on a kitchen scale and then lower each kitten into the bowl. They don’t want to be on the bowl unless it’s on their OWN terms, so they hop out of the bowl as quickly as possible, so I only have a split second to determine how much they weigh. I really need to invest in a decent small animal scale, I think.)

So – next week or the week after, perhaps. Honestly, I’m in no hurry except that I’d like to have Terry’s hernia taken care of. Not because it’s a problem or because it bothers him, but it kind of ooks me out. And yet, at the same time it’s kinda cute. Go figure.

  1. Terry, honey, you certainly do have ::thlurrrrrrp:: and ::smile:: down! Hurry up and gain weight, young man, so that your mommy can cease being ooked out!

    I do understand that “morbidly cute” thing going on there with the hernia, Robyn! πŸ˜‰

  2. I use Health-o-meter kids scale for my cats. I think going with the infant scales is cheaper than animal scales based on what I saw on Amazon. I set the cats down and try to corral them in with my arms without touching them, which works pretty well. They’re adults, though, and not as squirmy as kittens would be!
