So we now are a house of five cats. When you have five cats the humans living in the same residence matter a whole lot less. For example, my moccasins used to be for my feet. Now they are for kitten naps. We share a bed (thankfully a king size… but still). That’s seven living breathing things sleeping on a bed. If I’m sleeping, well who cares about noise. If the kittens are bothered though… we have a problem.
They were born about five weeks ago and have finally made it to the stage where they play, jump, and get into things! I’m LOVING it! Beyonce and Jay-Z had three babies… so of course one is named Blue Ivy. That’s the kitten we will keep. We will have to sell the other two (sad face). Blue is a striped orange kitty, one is all black like daddy, and one is a tortie just like mommy. I suppose it’s not the worst idea… cute kittens to play with for three months and then we make a few hundred bucks. How is this a bad plan? We might do it a time or two again.
When Clark came home this evening he walked into a typical crazy cat lady scene. I was in bed, three kittens on top of me, eating chocolate, and drinking something sparkling from a wine glass. Why would anyone do anything else after a long hard day of work?
The kittens have been really therapeutic for both myself and Clark. It’s so nice to come home to two cats who are excited to see and want some snuggles with their three tiny baby kittens. Sooooooooooo cute! They really haven’t been much extra work at all for us. They haven’t started eating or pooping on their own and Beyonce does all the work for us. We’ll see how I feel next week when they start to ween off momma’s milk and we move towards wet food.
It’s been so cool seeing Beyonce become a mom, barely out of her own kitten status. Even Jay cares for the babies and helps keep them clean. If mom and dad are with me downstairs and they hear a noise from upstairs they will immediately run upstairs to check on the kids. Precious!
The day we must let the two little kitties go off to their new families is going to be so tough! I’m very glad and grateful for the little kitties timing in our lives. Every time we see them it’s a little pick me up. New life! So exciting.
