We have a NorbDate!
For the newer readers, a NorbDate is an update on the former foster known as Norbie; he was a tiny little just-born kitten orphaned the very same day that our foster mama kitty Khaleesi was having kittens, and we slipped him in there while she was in labor. She was a little weirded out, but she was a sweet girl and cared for him as though he were her own.
One of my favorite Norbie pics, taken when he was about a month old:
Yesterday marked two years since Norbie went home to Chicago with Kirsten – and here he is now.
Thank you so much for the update, Kirsten. You know we love seeing his sweet face! (I just cannot believe it’s been two years!)
These guys are now three weeks old. They’re eating well and gaining weight, but all three of them are having poop issues (I won’t go into details, but Badger’s back end is so red and sore it makes me hurt to look at it). They’re on medication and soothing back-end ointments, and hopefully things will turn around soon. They’re bright-eyed and energetic (I mean, when they’re not sound asleep in a pile), so I’m not too worried about them.
One more week and I’ll be putting a litter box in the tub with them and start offering them canned food!
I bought this set of wings at Petsmart last week, because they made me laugh. Stefan reminds me of The Rock in Tooth Fairy. Those are Fred’s hands over there by the side of the bed. Stefan kept flopping over in response to the weight of the wings on his back, and Fred worried that he’d go tumbling off the side of the bed.
Video: the BeeBees want their bottle. NOW. You won’t see much of Skinny Pete, but Combo’s front and center and does a flip at the end.

2005: So for the rest of their stay at Casa And3rson, Sad Eyes is going to become Sugarbutt, Little Cal is becoming Callie, and Barrett is becoming Bear, because he looks like a little bear. Smitty’s going to remain Smitty, ’cause that’s a pretty good name.
