It’s not all purrs and frolicking here. Not for me, anyway. I knew it wouln’t be easy taking care of 7 kittens and their 2 mothers, but I wasn’t prepared for the smell! In no time flat, the room in which I’m keeping the cats has taken on a pretty icky odor. I’m off work tomorrow, so I’ll spend some time cleaning up in there. I’m sure I’ll discover some hidden surprises.
The cats have begun to hang out right by the door, so when I open it to go in to feed, scoop or play, they try to escape. The 2 mothers are the first to slip past. The kittens are easier to herd back into the room because they’re still a little afraid of me. A few have gotten out, and presents a challenge. They head straight for any piece of furniture or appliance they can hide behind. The heavier, the better. I have to plan a strategy for dealing with the escape attempts so nobody’s lost in the house and there aren’t any encounters with my cranky cat.
My nephew has been dying to come and help me with them, but he’s been sick and has had to stay home. I hope he’ll feel better soon.
If you know anyone in the area who could give any of these cats a great home, let me know.
