The Nestlings came through their spay/neuters just fine. Given that they haven’t been in carriers in a car since, basically, the day they came to me, they handled it really well. I set the carriers in the foster room Tuesday night, and they immediately climbed in to check them out. In fact, when I walked into the room yesterday to put them in the carriers, there were toys in there, like they were making sure they’d have something to do on the drive. There were one or two complaints during the drive, but all in all they were pretty quiet. Wren was shockingly quiet, actually. I expected her to talk the entire way, but nope. I guess she was too busy trying to figure out what was going on.
When we got home they ate, then sat around looking a little glassy-eyed, and then they all curled up in various spots and napped the afternoon away. I expect when I open the foster room door this morning, they’ll be back to business as usual (they were pretty close to normal at bed time last night.)
Tossing toys for the kittens! Wren is really showing off her moves.
Rufous is like “Let’s get this show on the road!” We’re outta here, the kittens are off for their spays and neuter, and I expect to be back home by early to mid afternoon, with all of us ready for a nap!
Former foster update! Last year, little black kitten Roger was one of our Outlander Clan kittens (he was an add-in to Jocasta’s kittens). He was a hot little mess when we first got him, but he recovered and thrived – and here he is now!
Sarah says: I saw your post about kittens in the dishwasher a few days ago. We’ve been thinking that it’s so funny how Roger was so interested in the dishwasher since he was a kitten. Now we know why! He loves to help cook and wants to smell all the ingredients. He also loves rolling around on the concrete in our screen-in porch. We just love our sweet boy!
Thank you, Sarah! ♥️
Wherein Wren and Starling are being awfully cute.
Home again, home again! Wren, Rufous, Starling and Tater/Plover are home from their spays and neuter and doing well! They’ve eaten and now they’re contemplating naps, once they figure out if what’s in this box is for them. (What’s IN the box isn’t for them, but the box itself is all theirs!)
The milk bar is active this morning – and look at Uhura and those sweet kneady paws. She is SUCH a sweetheart.
