Saturday was a tough day. Our kittens, Oscar and Patches, went to their new home Saturday afternoon with a lovely lady who’s a friend of a friend. Bubbles and Tadpole were understandably upset when they came home and found the kittens gone, but not nearly as upset as they were when we received the news that Oscar had died sometime Monday night from an unknown illness.
Patches, thankfully, is doing well and enjoying her new home. But with everyone so upset, including Mrs. Calico (her mama) and Freckles (her sis), Seymour spent a considerable part of Tuesday afternoon searching for more kittens to bring home. He drove over 200 miles and went to several different farms in search of kittens, finally settling on these three:
OJ’s a little wild, so he’s currently residing in our luxurious mud room till we get him tamed. Katniss and Minnie are guests of our scenic machine shed, along with Freckles and Calico, who is graciously nursing Miss Minnie. Poor little thing was a runt, so I’m glad that Mrs. Calico is taking care of her.
And there may be yet more feline love to come at our house! I’ve got dibs on one of my sister’s sister-in-law’s little kittens, and in two or three weeks, Little Miss will be ours. I love gray and white kitties. And black and white kitties. And orange kitties.
Okay, I just love kitties. I’m on my way to becoming a crazy cat lady (got the crazy part down, now I’m working on the cat part). 🙂
How about you? Do you have pets? Would you like to have pets? Tell me all about ’em!
