Tired of pictures yet?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Today was picture day again. And of course I have to show them to you guys! We're still having so much trouble making a final decision on which kittens we're keeping. John thinks we should keep 5.. no more, no less. But it's sooooo hard deciding which ones. We're definitely keeping Captain Squishy & Garfield, because those are John's favorites. We thought we had our final choice made, but one of the ones we weren't planning on keeping has pretty much decided that she's keeping us!

Captain Squishy Fuzzypants - 9 weeks old tomorrow - giving me the "evil eye"



Garfield - 9 weeks old tomorrow



Domino - 9 weeks old Monday



Izzy - 9 weeks old Monday



Cleopatra - 9 weeks old Tuesday



Jack - 9 weeks old Tuesday

Lt. Lilly Bear - 8 weeks old Tuesday





Jasmine - 8 weeks old Tuesday



Rosie - 8 weeks old Tuesday



Holly - 8 weeks old Wednesday - she's the one that has pretty much decided that she's staying here, LOL., but we're not keeping the name Holly, we're going to come up with something else.

And the littlest monsters.... they will all be 2 weeks old tomorrow. They're HUGE already, compared to what the others weighed at the same age. All have their eyes open or mostly open except little Woody Jr. who hasn't even started to yet.

Winnie





Yukon





Woody Jr.





Sadie





Taco

Oh my gosh, that is just too much cuteness for me to handle!!! Domino and Izzy have the most beautiful markings! I thought you were keeping Cleopatra (my fav!). She is just too sweet. Love the new babies too. You sure do have that house full. I'm in love with the little black one too. I could just take them all home!

We still might be... I know we're definitely keeping the Twin Terrors (Squishy & Garfield), and Holly seems to have decided she's ours. John also really wants us to keep Lilly, and I'm not sure if I can part with Woody Jr. because he's so much like his namesake who I lost two years ago. I'm trying to push for a 6th, and I can't decide between Cleo, Domino & Izzy.

I am in love with Sadie. It was funny because I looked at her and I was like AWW she's gorgeous, then looked at her name and it is the same name as my kitty.

I also love Domino, Izzy, Jack, Cleopatra, and can't forget Captain Squishy Fuzzypants. I'd have such a hard time picking out 5 kitties, but I'm sure you'll pick the best homes for the others.

What's your story? How do you have so many litters all at once?!

I rescue pregnant mommas and foster them and their kittens. It started with Sasha, a former feral that I was told was already spayed but it turns out she wasn't... she escaped from the house and was gone for 3 days and when she came back she was pregnant. I have personally watched spay/aborts and just couldn't do it. Sasha had 5 kittens (but lost one), and she "adopted" the two little orange boys (Garfield & Captain Squishy).. a friend of John's told him that someone they knew had a litter of kittens whose momma had been killed. We took in those two at 4 days old.
Then Missy (second group of babies) showed up on our farm either a stray or dropped off by someone, already close to delivery... and she had four babies. Then we found out about another pregnant momma in need of a foster home (Lady), her owners didn't want her anymore because she was pregnant... and she gave birth to 5 babies two weeks ago tomorrow.

Having all those kittens must take a lot of work. I just have Saedie and a 11 year old cat and they are hard enough as it is.

Oh it is... scooping their litter box 10 times a day (in addition to the other litterboxes 2-3 times a day), lots of feedings, daily weighing, bath time once a week or so to get them used to it, daily "check ups" to make sure they're all healthy and well, always having to watch where I step, always having to keep things picked up or else they suffer the wrath of kittens, LOL.
But it's well worth it to have 10 kittens run to greet me when I walk in the door, meowing to be held and loved on... and to wake up in the middle of the night to a large fluffy pile curled up on top of me. I wouldn't trade a second of it!

It is a really hard decision when they're all being sooo cute playing or sleeping on top of us. We were bad though, when we picked our first top 5 they were still pretty young and their personalities hadn't really shown yet, so we picked a couple of them based on looks.
Then last weekend, we went to John's family reunion. When I got home, there were a few that just immediately ran to greet me... so happy I was back. And then there were a couple that just stayed in their nap spot, they looked up and then went back to sleep.. they didn't particularly care if I was there or not. From that second on, Holly has been following me EVERYWHERE, if I don't pay attention quickly enough, she'll be in my lap if I'm sitting down or climbing up my leg if I'm standing up. She has to sleep either on top of me, or right next to me at night. And her favorite thing is when I hold her like a baby (on her back) and she goes to sleep with me rocking her and singing to her... no my animals aren't spoiled at all!

So I'll remind everyone, it really is SO important to choose your animals based on their personality and not their looks. You will be greatly rewarded for it.

Our new and final decision is: Garfield, Captain Squishy, Domino, Lt. Bear, Holly (whose name we will change), and *maybe* Woody Jr. if he grows up with the personality we are looking for. The great news is that the Twin Terrors are almost 2 pounds so we'll be able to get them neutered soon. The girls we're keeping are all still pretty small so it'll probably be a little while until they can be spayed yet.

Jack still has a home when he's ready to go, and I just got an application for Izzy last night. Both owners have been invited to join TCS, and I hope they will so that we can all watch them grow up!
