I'll be picking up keys for cat-sitting again this weekend. A few clients are heading south for some r&r so I get to care for and pamper their kitties. Time to fill up the cat-bag. 2 new cats to show you soon.
Annie is doing well and there have been no complications so far with her spay.
Her nurse (Audrey) has been by her side since allowed to be with her mom again.
She thinks she is tricking me and not allowed with her mom so she tries to hide sometimes.
She is a very intelligent kitten.
(2 sad looking sacks)
I have a bed all set up in the kitty room for Annie but she prefers to be in our bedroom. I just let her be. In this photo, Annie is just home from the vet and I let Audrey sit with her for awhile before secluding her in a room. Annie is still feeling the effects of the anesthetic here.Annie was weighed when I picked her up and she now weighs 7 lbs. She is so little but has gained almost 2 lbs. since I brought her home in September. She was just over 5 lbs. then and trying to nurture 3 babies. I'd like to see her gain a bit more now.
Did you know that carrying a litter of kittens may slightly stunt the growth of an immature cat? I have read this in the book called Wholly Cats by Faith McNulty written years ago. I'm afraid this may have happened to Annie as her kitten, Audrey, who is 4 months old, is quickly reaching her size.
We were out for breakfast with our favorite grand-daughter, Riley. I hope Shelia from Note Songs sees this post as I have just photographed the newest and maybe smallest 'bathroom diva' for her collection.
We had some fun but Ry couldn't figure out what her nan was doing. She just humoured me and played along.
