Teresa and I decided yesterday that it made more sense for Mercury to come to me before she had her babies rather than after, so I scrubbed down the foster room, got it all set up for her, and then went to get her.
Oh, this girl. You guys, she is the SWEETEST. She sat in her carrier in the front seat next to me and all the way home she was so calm and curious, looked around, snoozed a little, and looked some more. She is so chill!
She is also huuuge.
I swear she looks to me as though she’ll be dropping those kittens at any moment. Fred, on the other hand, says that since her belly isn’t constantly moving, it’ll be at least a few days and that there’s some growing still to be done. Poor Mercury; I’m not sure how much more than belly can grow!
PS: In case you missed it in the comments yesterday, Mercury and her kittens will be named after NASA missions & projects. Teresa’s got a list of pre-approved names and she’ll be naming the kittens once they’re born.
