First and foremost, I want to thank all of you for your encouraging comments and emails. I think I'm still quite numb at finding SIX kittens along with the Momma Cat! Keep the good thoughts coming that we can find all the kittens homes when they're weaned!
She's had a bit of the "runs" today. I'm sure this is due to a change in her diet and the worming shot Bill gave her to rid her of a certain tapeworm found in a mouse-based diet. That was the only thing wrong with her. That and she was caring, and feeding, six hungry, well-behaved kittens.
I did go into town to get some kitten food and a cat box the kittens could negotiate. They are already using it! Of course, while I was there I got a few balls and mice for them to play with. Our older cats have their noses out of joint enough by these "intruders", lest I take their toys too! Shame on me!
Sleep well, Little Family. It's snowing and nasty outside, but you shouldn't have to worry about that at all...ever. (From my lips to God's ear!) May you all be safe and warm, and most of all loved, for the rest of your long lives.
