Went home last evening, I get off work at 5 and am usually home by 530. Shon had let the babies out of their dog kennel for it to be cleaned and change the cat litter etc., they had full run of the room. The room is smallish has 2 book cases in it, a desk and elliptical machine. Shon sat in there with them talking to them for a while. Of course they had to be dragged out from under the cabinets to be petted and loved but ... they were receptive to being loved once I got them out. No new scratches today :-)
I set the trap around 7 the food that had been put out yesterday morning had not been eaten so I worried a little but was hopeful I had to run to town to pick up cat food and things so I left. Got back just before 9 and was SO excited to see the glow of little eyes in the trap. I had the last one ... HA HA ... it was a Opossum, a little one, same size as the kittens ... Im now thinking that was the other set of eyes, I looked around and saw no other eyes and heard no other skurrying ... went home loved on the babies some more and put them back in the dog kennel so the door could be opened and they could get fresher air for the night and hear the sounds of the house and the other cats.
This morning I fixed their breakfast, a can of stinky goodness, a bowl of kitten chow, a fresh bowl of water and some treats just for good measure. Cleaned the box and took the door off the crate and let them venture back out into the room on their own. Didnt take long once they got a wiff of the yummie stuff on the other side. Im hoping they will explore today and get a little more comfortable in their surroundings. They have an appointment with the vet in the morning at 8AM ... then they can spend the rest of the day being kittens.
The first kitten that was caught, he is the leader of the pack ... he will sit out in the room but not come to you. He growls while your petting him but the whole time hes rubbing and loving and seems to really enjoy it and he gives little love bites its very sweet. I think he will be a good Man Cat :-)
The little girl - second one caught, looks just like the first one but her face is white and she looks like shes got eyeliner on. She look horrifically at you while your petting her brothers and shes not too sure about pets but if you hold her she seems to like it, just being held up close ... I think she is a princess in the making.
The one with the eye .... that poor little eye. He is very timid but really likes the pets. When its light he can definately see you ... when its darker not so much, his eye is messed up and tomorrow hopefully they can tell me how much its messed up. Its not goopy or running and he has it completly open its just got a smudge spot on it and the pupil is a little more dialited. The color part of the eye is a different color from the good eye. He likes to be held but curls in a ball and tucks his tail while being held. I think he will be a very loving kitty, most likely a lap kitty.
Apologies for the long post ... I will take pictures this weekend and get them up next week.
ButterBean took his pill good last night he only has to have it once a day and has 8 more days to go. He seems like hes feeling better, I havent noticed as much licking.
