Kevin’s freind, Laurel, is adopting Zinky tomorrow! (If all goes well, which it should). Kevin posts a photo a day, so I’m sure I’ll continue to see the Zinkster (http://somnule.wordpress.com)

The kittens got to listen to flute Friday, two fiddles Saturday, and Sunday they met a better photographer and some tasty socks. Unfortunately for photos, they did very short bursts of bottle drinking.
The socks were a longer draw. All of the kittens, individually, snuffled them well and took a few licks too.
…but this photo was a couple days earlier, by Kevin. Veronica has always been good at looking demure, hiding her paws.
They came back from surgery all growly and playing roughly. They hissed at each other a lot at first, perhaps because they were separate some of the time and smell different after all that’s been done. Veronica has a visible incision on her back with a little bloodstain: I believe that’s from the microchip and it just shows more on her creamy white fur. I cleaned it off and it will likely be invisible tomorrow. They’re on opiates and not feeling bad.
I removed everything but myself that they can climb, their nails were trimmed again, but they’re jumping and pouncing and trying to sneak out the door when I enter or exit. They’re getting way too competent to stay here much longer.
Today the kittens get spayed, so I’ll be removing easily climbed items. The room will feel empty for the day and next week even more so as they’ll probably all have new homes by then.
