Caterday (and Kitterday) Saturday!


It's been a week since we posted anything! But we are through the T's on our blogroll visiting...some things get done, some slide.

Teri worked for 3 hours in the basement last Sunday and made some headway! One corner went from this:




to this:



Tomorrow she is going to work on the bookshelves and maybe vacuum, so it doesn't feel so gritty down there, and gather up 3 more boxes of stuff to donate to GoodDonor.org.


We know you are all awaiting a kitten update, and great news there, too! Little Cheddar (Teri loves calling him 'Cheddah', hahameow) is up to 206 grams today and gaining 10-14 grams a day now. Brawny Colby Jack is 297 grams now...They're the Cheesiest!

Their eyes are open and they are looking at Teri when she talks to them. They can now regulate their own body temperature, and so Teri took the flannel sheet off the tent so they can get more light and begin to interact a bit with the 'cats outside the tent'.

When Teri is up in the bedroom, on the laptop or watching TV, she pulls the kitten box out of the tent and puts it next to her so she can coo over them and we get to sniff 'em, too.

They might not look like they are growing much from their photos, but they are! Here are some pix taken last Saturday when Cary came to visit--they were 128 and 207 grams then:










and taken yesterday...







And, Disco has been clawing at Teri's pantleg the whole time she's been typing, saying something that sounds like Stella...so without further chit-chat...




And not to be forgotten, the other 'macho mancat', TomTom, hissing at her outside his new feeding station. Teri cracked the first one she made when she was cutting the entrance hole and it bugged her.



So when she saw this box on sale at Staples yesterday, so got it. She decided not to put the mat inside as he never 'stays long' and it often smelled like pee, so now she can just rinse out the box if he marks it (it may have been raccoon musk, who knows what they smell like...)

  2. Aww, such sweet baby faces. :-)

    Huge congrats to Teri for cleaning up in the basement. Doesn't it feel great? Well, the human says it does, we'll take her word for it.

    TomTom looks like he was giving Teri the "what for," with that hissing. The stray/semi-feral our human feeds now waits on her doorstep every morning and tells her in no uncertain terms--and at full volume--what he thinks of her tardiness. :-P

  5. You really need to issue some sort of "Squee warning" when you post so many kitten pictures. Mommy nearly fainted from all the cuteness. The kittens (and all of the cats) are absolutely precious. We're so glad TomTom is using his feeding station. We put out similar shelters for our ferals and they really appreciate having a shelter to protect them from rain when they snack.
