Sunday morning, Fred started suggesting that we let the Squash Bugs and the Swimmers out of the foster room, and let them have the run of the upstairs. I hemmed and hawed, and honestly would have preferred to wait another week, but I gave in pretty easily. I figured they were all big enough to make their way back to the foster room for food and water or the litter box and the screen door was already up at the bottom of the stairs, so why not?
Unlike previous kittens who come out the first day, explore every inch of the upstairs, and then are so overwhelmed that they stay in the foster room for the next several days, these guys have really taken to having their freedom. They spend all their time either running up and down the hallway or piled up on Fred’s bed. I haven’t had any problems getting them back into their room at bedtime (YET), and I have begun their all-important naptime training.
I haven’t gotten many pictures of them out of the foster room yet, because when they see me coming they run over to me. I’m going to have to sneak upstairs at some point to get a picture of them in a sleepy pile on Fred’s bed.
I considered passing this off as being a picture of Combo, but it’s not. It’s Skinny Pete. I don’t have any Combo pictures because my iPhone refuses to focus on him properly (the light in that room is pretty bad), and I need to get in there with my camera, but obviously haven’t yet. I will, though!
I love that Skinny Pete and Badger accepted Combo immediately. Every time I check on them when they’re sleeping, all three of them are almost always piled up together. I mean, not that I expected any dramatics at two weeks of age, but a hiss or two wouldn’t have been out of line.
I need to get a video of the three of them howling – Skinny Pete and Badger have identical high-pitched meows, and then Combo joins in with his husky little pack-a-day meow, and it cracks me UP.
