The kittens all got new homes Thursday and Friday. My homie cats apprciate the extra lap time.

Echo was freed from his collar shortly after coming home, after getting his jsw caught on it twice. Now he and Daffodil are with their new family. I assume Daff’s collar was cut free. This evening, I saw Daisy had gotten free of her collar, apparently chewed through. The collars make excellent toys.
Tomorrow, Ember and Daisy go to their first adoption day.
All four kittens got editted today. All four were very happy to find that I would feed them again. Among the edits was nail trimming: they still jump at my legs but don’t stick. o0====08o8o08o0ooo0o000uy900u9yyhyhyyo0h6^6y66666
Their typing on post-surgery drugs makes little sense. I had to interrupt my typing to free Echo’s jaw from his collar and someone continued the blog. Ack! caught again. Making it more snug would fix it, but cutting is quicker.
Yesterday, Daffodil found she could do a stand stand.
After racing around, it’s time for naps. Their surgeries are scheduled for tomorrow, but Ember is still rather underweight. Still, no breakfast and a morning vet trip for all four and we’ll see.
The cup was empty, and only had held orange juice, but it was new to the kittens. I had been drinking from it, so they all had to lick the edge of the cup. I’ve not tried to eat much with them, so this was pretty exciting, even if ultimately disappointing.
Em had been hiking and brought back some fabulous smells for the kittens. She even had some mud!
Everyone but Ember is either over 2 pounds or will be by Wednesday. I sometimes can get him to play “catch the kibble”, to remind him to eat more. Everyone is healthy though.
I peeled off a magazine label, which rolls up with the sticky side outside. It makes an annoying, intriguing toy for a while–catching their whiskers and paw pad fur lightly.
Today, Daisy realized she could get on the 2nd yellow shelf and pull up on the plywood that was blocking off an area they never explored. So they have a new area to explore now. These are just pictures of Daffodil and Echo being busy and looking handsome.
I had not yet introduced them to the joys of playing with plastic straws, nor to the game of door. That is happily remedied now. There’s an odd percussion of various lengths of straw being batted and chewed.
I decided the were trustworthy enough to be allowed in the case. This litter is very good about using the actual litter box. They even bury their poops.
Ember is putting more weight on his leg. The last pain shot was 3 days ago, so it’s probably not doing much. I’ll see how he is tomorrow, but maybe he doesn’t need the shots now. He has a couple more days of antibiotic.
They’re 7 weeks old now. Echo is probably two pounds by tomorrow–he was .5 ounces shy of it this morning. Ember needs to catch up, but he is working on it.
