I haven't posted in quite some time, and the kittens have done lots of changing. I think seeing them so close to being ready to find forever homes has been more heart-wrenching this time, as I have been their de facto mother since week 2. But I keep taking solace in knowing that whomever adopts these little sweethearts will have cats that will *love* humans for the rest of their lives.
It is such a pleasure to enter the kitten room and have these four little bundles of energy jump up onto my lap. The often start purring the second they see me. Within a moment or two, I have become their personal jungle gym: they leap off my legs and shoulders at each other, chase each other behind my back, and treat my toes like their exclusive chew toys.
Zya has caught the "cat-o-nine tails" toy.
"Take dat you nasty brodder!"
"I can has a snuggle?"
