Well, as kittens tend to do, they are growing by leaps and bounds. In fact, when they were about a week old, I told Jaime I thought they had doubled in size in just one day !!
They’re about 8 weeks old, which means cat food and litter boxes. Until now, we’ve tried to confine them to one room; that ended a few weeks ago. They have been liberated !!! And Shelby (our 100 lb aussie / lab mix) is not too sure what to think.
In addition to the kittens (who remain temporary residents), we have added another dog to our collection of animals. A few months ago, Justine found a small dog wondering near a busy street close to our house. Surely I don’t need to tell you the rest of the story….. She’s been named Lucy.
I’m still trying to get Justine to take her to the vet so we can see if she has a micro chip, and ultimately return her to her first home. Until then, we won’t be able to determine how old she is, though she undoubtedly is still a pup. And until recently, a very well behaved one. Apparently she has decided the proper amount of time has passed, and she can now make herself at home. The problem…she usually picks our bedroom floor.
Our one solace is the promise that the girls will be taking said animals with them when they finally chose a place of their own. Until then, we will continue to build our ark…
