Foster Friday

I almost forgot to post today!
Bella and babies continue to do well.  Babies are growing and playing hard.

Amos has had a bit of an eye infection.  The eye would seal shut.  It eventually moved to both eyes.  So he went to the vet and was given some ointment.  His eyes are now open all the time!  Mom goes in today to get another shot, so babies will all be looked over as well.

Stella is a love bug and always wants to sit in your lap!

Sophia is working hard to grow up...she is trying to eat the hard food from the bowl.  

Stella, Amos, and Solomon have all peed in the litter box!  I'm sure Sophia has too, we just haven't seen her.  They are all drinking water from the bowl now too.  Mom is still nursing but we are well on our way to eating more solids!

Mancat Monday

The mancats love fresh catnip.  Flynn thinks every time you go outside you should bring some back in for him!
Here are the panthers enjoying some fresh nip...From the top, going clockwise...Flynn, Oliver and Harrison

We tear the leaves into small pieces because they will eat whatever is on the ground...then they will go to the compost bowl and scout out the stems! 

Flynn seems to feel the effects more than the others!  He is the cat at the bottom now.

Here's Flynn throwing caution to the wind...he is a nut!

Foster Friday

 Last week, we were asked if we could help foster a momma cat and her kittens.  How could we say no to that?
So four kittens came to stay with us, along with their mom.  I did request no orange or black since I have a weakness for them!  MOL 

These sweeties are two-three weeks old here...two boys and two girls.  We named them after our sweet Ugandan kids we hosted this year...
Stella - lighter grey
Sophia - darker grey 
And here is mom Bella.  She is a very sweet girl and attentive mother.  She doesn't mind you handling the kittens, but will come over if they make too much noise.  She was turned into the shelter as a stray.  She is friendly and enjoys being petted, but does not like to be picked up.  She is unsure of toys or how to play, but I hope with time we can show her how fun they can be!

We will have mom and babies until the kittens weigh two pounds and are eating on their own.  Then they will return to the shelter, have their surgeries and be placed for adoption.

My boys are handling things well.  They are curious about what is behind the door but they are not charging the room to find out!

Harrison - The Mighty Hunter

Harrison discovered a bug on the outside of the window the other day.
He chirped at it and told it to leave...

When it didn't he tried to swat it away...

He gave it two paws, but the bug held on...

The bug started to crawl higher on the screen

Harrison watched it finally leaving his domain...sometimes you don't have to kill to be a hunter, just identify and scare it away!

Happy Birthday Tanner

Happy 15th Birthday to my sweet Tanner.

Tanner is a loving boy and so tolerant.  He enjoys a good snuggle on the couch and sleeps right next to you at night.  He wants to be touching you.

He loves his brothers but enjoys some playtime alone as well.  He is very good at taking turns when we play.  His favorite toys right now are catnip pillows, and his "girl" string.

Tanner always comes over when we are eating dinner or lunch.  He wants to know what you are having and see if it is something he needs.  You can always count on him being there!  Thankfully, no one else has picked up this habit!

Tanner is living every day to the fullest.  I am thankful for all the extra time I've been given with him, and will cherish every moment.

Happy Birthday to my one and only orange boy!

Wacky Wet Wednesday

The boys haven't had play time in the tub in a while, and Harrison let us know he was ready.  Auntie was cleaning her tub and he kept trying to get in there.  When she finished, we ran some water and threw his toys in.  It didn't take long before he was in the the water playing with his toys!
Harrison playing with the swimming fish...

A bigger bath toy that a friend gave the boys...

Oliver checking it out and is curious, but can't decide if he should get his feet wet.  Although, Oliver loves to shower and usually ends up soaked because he stands on the edge on the inside of the curtain and the water is just spraying all over him!

Flynn has come to see what is going on...

Flynn couldn't resist...he had to get in there and play with those fish!

Harrison was finally done...time to get dried off!

Flynn has some alone time with the toys and loved it!

Time for Flynn to get dried off...he had laid down at one point and was pretty wet!

Here are some videos as well...Enjoy!
