Spoke too Soon

It looks like the busy time is not quite finished afterall, but we will find out tomorrow when it will be. It's both good and bad that it is continuing- good because of the opportunity, bad because we are missing out on the extra chin skritches.

Stella and her babies have taken up residence under the dresser. All four babies now have open eyes and ears, and are looking much more kitten-like than rattie-like. Stella and I have been spending time hanging out on each side of the door to her room, which mum thinks is cute. She is a lovely little ladycat. She is so friendly, and a real cuddlepuss with mum. She does this cute thing when mum bends down, where she rears up on her back legs to touch her nose to mum's. Mum had to take Meryl back to get checked out today. She has a lump and a hairless patch on the back of her left ear. It looks like a mosquito bite, but the hairloss is weird. She was cleared of ringworm or an abscess, and now we just have to watch and see how it develops or changes. Hoperfully it should just go away. Mum is very glad that it wasn't ringworm, as we don't really have anywhere to isolate her for a long period of time at home except the bathroom (which gets cold), and there is no room in isolation at the shelter.
Don't you think Calvin is a cutie patootie? He is a very perfect looking young mancat in training. He looks like the pictures of kittens that they stick on the side of a tissue box.
Have a happy week, peeps:)

Come on, Meryl, we know it's just a temporal thingie you got there. You can't distract us from your beauty with a ridiculous bald spot! Mom wants to know if you can ship Meryl, Ruby Bunny AND Stella to Germany...
You know that you will have to tell WHAT is keeping your mom that busy, don't you? We're cats, being curious is our main business.
