17 days without kittens and loving it!

Yes, it’s been 17 days since the other kitten found a home. I have been so busy with everything, that I haven’t had a chance to even mention that it found a home!

Kitten Update.

Well, I am crossing my fingers is that the other kitten will get a new home this week. I was really hopeful that they both would find homes this weekend, but no such luck.

I got a message from the new caretaker of ‘lil one’ – nobody ever owns a cat, do they?

Hello Mike!

Just wanted you to know that the kitty is doing great. She’s love it here and gets along very well w/Cuddles my other kitten.

Curious though… did the other person come through to p/u the other kitten? My mil is interested if he/she is still available.. she just fell in love w/ours!


So, it looks like the other one will have a home by the end of the week.

It’s bizarre, but the remaining kitten is all cuddly and stuff all of a sudden. I am not sure if it’s because the other kitten is gone and that the remaining one has nobody to rough up, or because I liked the other one so much I was slighting this one.

We took a nap this afternoon, and he was all cuddled up, just a purring away.

He was playing with a toy mouse a bit ago. I have the memory card in the computer or I would take more video of the kitten and Brother rough-housing in the living room right now.

Kitten Update, good news and bad

I came home for lunch today, and one of the kittens used the litter box I put out for them. I was quite excited! No more wet spots on my carpet.

I fed the big cats – they like the new canned food I got for them. I also fed the little ones. I mixed up a batch of formula and put it down for them. I have done this for a few days now, but they hadn’t really figured it out until today.

The kittens are getting so big! They just love to play! Here is the fat one viciously attacking the dishwasher. The skinny one and the fat one are always tussling with each other. During lunch, the brown one took off running from the kitchen all the way to my bedroom. I guess it didn’t want to be ganged up on by the two orange ones.

So, the skinny one found the food dish.

The sad news is when I came home from work tonight, the brown kitten is paralyzed. I am not sure why. It was laying on the floor of the computer room – I had left the door open when I went back to work after lunch. My best guest is that Sister was trying to ‘hide’ her kittens, and hauled this kitten up on top of my stack of boxes or something, and it fell down and didn’t land on it’s feet. It has no control of it’s back legs, and it appears to have no control of it’s bladder. It could also be something that the fleas gave it, or reaction to the poisons I have been using to get rid of the fleas. I am really not sure. It doesn’t seem to be in any pain.

I guess I will see what the story is in the morning.

Guest Post from my sister.

Hey all,
Thank you for all the kind words and thoughts this week. My parents and all pets are fine. The house however did not make it. Even though my parents had lived there for 37 years and had many memories lost they are very optimistic and my father already has rough sketches for a new home right over the old one! They have had lots of help and the house was insured so they will be ok. It’s a shock but most all the sentimental things were scooped up on the way out, retrieved by firefighters, or dug out later.

Also, due to the lack of home I have now added yet another cat to the two we already have at the house. However this cat managed to hide UNDER the house the entire time the house was on fire and then walked around for a day with icicles hanging off of him so I think he deserves a comfy new house! If anyone’s questioning the ice… you shoot gobs of water at a house for 12 hours in 4 below weather and see what happens!

So as stated before, they are fine, they have what they need. What I can ask of all of you is to put important papers in lock boxes, put important pictures NEXT to the front door, make sure your smoke detectors work and are in appropriate places, use those little jewelry cases you get your rings in to store your jewels – this is the only way we would have found heirloom rings, and for gods sake, when you smell smoke upstairs don’t DON’T send your spouse up to make sure it really is a fire! Geesh Dad!

The Creuzer’s send their thanks.
