"Edith" is a 2 week old calico. She started nursing on my chin, so I called my friend Kathleen who never turns me down to help a chin-nursing-angel-calico. :) Kathleen is going to foster her on a VERY temporary basis, but this little girl needs a place to go...maybe even a real Mommy that can give her what she needs. She was eating some solid food and I bottle fed her at my house. (OMG...I need a grandbaby!)
I put two kittens in The Land of Dirty Underwear, and 5 kittens in one of the washrooms. It was mayhem! I could hear galloping, squealing, more galloping....they had a ball!
I had to pick up six of the adult cats that I rescued yesterday from the vets. Dr. S is so awesome - he spayed all of them for us today! I met a really lovely volunteer at the local Tim Horton's parking lot. It was stupidly hot and transferring newly spayed female cats into cat carriers on an oven-like parking lot was brutal. I've never lost a cat while making the transfer, but I came pretty close to losing Kokie today. I grabbed her by the tail as she broke through the carrier front. She must've been so frightened - not as frightened as I was. We were in farm country, and I never would've found her.
Another foster Mom came by the house this afternoon to pick up her 3 foster kittens. I know she reads this blog and I have to wonder what she was thinking when I introduced her to my oldest son..."Ya know...the one from The Land of Dirty Underwear". Hahaha :)
Tonight, David and I are driving into the city with 4 of the remaining kittens to take them to their foster parents. I'm hoping on the way back we can stop at my favourite ice cream place.
After today, I sure deserve it. :)
