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.
