9-29-09 – True Blood 6 and the Wonkas.

Jump to comments

We’re getting close to the point where the True Bloods are almost ready to go to Petsmart and (hopefully) be adopted very quickly. Sam, Bill, Hoyt, and Lafayette have all lost their eyelips, and their eyes are looking really good. The biggest difference is in Bill – he used to sit around with his eyes squinched shut, but now you can actually see his eyes.

I’m going to call later and get an appointment with the vet, so she can look them over and decide whether their eyes need more tweaking, or are ready to go.

Speaking of their eyes – I was amazed yesterday when I looked at Terry. Now, I don’t know if I mentioned this in the past, but one of his eyes was cloudy and looked like there had been some damage to it. I figured it was going to end up being permanent damage, but that since he had the surgery, there’d be no more damage to the eye itself.

When I looked at him yesterday, that eye wasn’t cloudy. I think his eyes are getting BETTER.

That is just awesome.

“Lady, why would you need to reach your computer, when you can reach your Lafayette? Computers don’t purr! They also don’t bite and kick you when they’re feeling feisty, but that’s neither here nor there.”

Five of the six (Lafayette was laying over in front of my computer). My desk/ filing cabinet looks like this most of the time, with little brown tabbies piled up all over the place.

Six of the six!

Looky there – Bill has eyes!

Bill keeps an eye on the goings-on.

“Hey, guys! There’s a world out there! Come look!”

We’ve had these kittens for a week, and I’ve only had to give two partial baths to clean poop off kittens. That may very well be a record!

(Fred pats himself on the back ALL the time for bringing home such awesome, healthy little kittens.)

Violet has the giggles.

Mike considers whether he might be hungry (he always is!).

Look at the SMILE!

I love how she looks all serious and earnest, like she’s trying to tell me something important and making sure she’s getting her point across.

“Who, me? Trying to break into the closet? Why, no! I’d never do that!”

“Really? You little brats knock the cat bed off the desk and that’s not enough for you? You have to sniff sniff SNIFF at my tail, too? Well, I’ve been patient, but I’ve had ENOUGH! Cut it out, squirt!”

Poor Miz Poo. She sure does put up with a lot from these kittens.

  1. Oh I can’t believe they are nearing time to go – I really need to get on the ball and send out my carepackage for you – I have forgotten to bring it with me since Friday! I can’t belive Bill looks so good – you wouldn’t guess he ever had problems. They all look so good! And the Wonka’s look so cute too – they are doing very well!

  2. I have been watching these little guys progress and am so happy to see the eyelips are doing their job! These little guys are going to make some families very happy! Kudos to you for the patience of taking care of them: the too-many-to-count vet trips, the eye goop (a much-hated treatment at my house), the extra love and worry! Thank you for all you do!

    And, at our house, we call it “Poo-Foot.” And you are so lucky to have such a low number of poo-foots! Nothing like having a poo-footed kitten jump on you or the bed!

  3. What am I going to do without my True Blood fix! I thought maybe they’d been hanging around long enough that you might have forgotten that they weren’t ‘permanent residents’

  4. Oh I’m so glad that the Truebloods are doing so well…will be so happy when they all get adopted into wonderful families…although please put a “we promise to send updates” clause in the adoption contracts ๐Ÿ™‚

    Those little Wonkas just have the cutest faces…of course I’m still totally utterly absolutely in love with little Miss Veruca…that face just kills me each and every time ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. If I hadn’t followed the True Bloods from the beginning, I wouldn’t know something was ever wrong with their eyes. Now I really believe that if the operation works, they’ll never be bothered by the problem.

    …I also think I have a crush on Violet…

  6. Oh, Robyn. You and Fred should be ~ must be! ~ so proud of what you’ve done for the True Bloods. And to take on the new beebees at the same time. Halos all ’round!

    You have my greatest respect and admiration.N

  7. desk full of tabbies=best kind of inbox.

    I have to admit, I have gotten so attached to the True Bloods that when you said it was almost time to bring them to Petsmart, I was confused. But they live HERE! On your WEBSITE! However, I’m sure they will quickly enchant everyone who sees them and it’s so good to know that you’ll have a place for some other tinies in need.
