So I bought a folding desk to put the kittens on and take their picture together (it basically serves the same role as the shelf in the last house where I’d put all the kittens and take their picture.) I set it up in the litter closet and got them all up there and looking at me, but the light in the closet isn’t great.
I brought it into the room and broke out the Churu. That managed to get Molly Marinara interested in being on the desk.
So the desk will work well, I think. It’s lower than the shelf at the last house was – the good thing about taking pictures on that shelf was that it was high enough that the kittens were hesitant to jump down. They don’t hesitate to jump from the desk, so I’ll have to get wild with the feather teaser to keep their attention long enough to get group pictures. I’m sure I’ll figure it out. And the good thing is that when I’m not using the desk, I set it over under the window (where the morning sun comes in), and it gives Molly Marinara a good place to hang out up away from the kittens.
We had a new water heater installed last week, a process that took three days (not just the water heater, there were other things being done .. Oh, I don’t know what all they did. Fred told me what needed to happen and I died from the boredom. I’m sure it was amazing. I’m certainly not complaining about the instant hot water we’re getting now) and so for three days all the cats except Archie disappeared into another dimension. Archie mostly sat around and looked annoyed, but I saw him get a lot of petting so I’m sure he wasn’t too bothered.
Look how absolutely adorable former foster Phoenix (one of Mercury’s Missions in 2017) is, resting her chin on her sister Amber (one of the Squash Bugs in 2015; she was Ambercup then). Couldn’t you just squeeze ’em both? (Thanks, Debra!)
Tossing ping pong balls for the kittens – who weren’t quite sure what was going on!
We had guys in the house doing work for three days straight this week, so I hid in the foster room with the kittens (I considered hiding under the couch with Alice, but I didn’t quite fit.) (Molly Marinara, Franco Fondue, Christopher Chutney & Sofia Soy Sauce.)
Hannah Hollandaise and Alfie Alfredo were playing, things got a little rough, and Alfie hissed. Mama Molly Marinara decided she’d better keep an eye on things!
I’ve been terribly lax as far as introducing the kittens to the laser light. Luckily, they found it pretty interesting and got right into chasing it around! (Though Hannah Hollandaise is far more interested in jumping on Sofia Soy Sauce, it appears.)
