omg. Good job on getting them! Well, you could always keep them until they're 8 weeks and then adopt them out or find a no kill shelter to take them too. I'm sure after you've socialized them they'll find homes with no problem.

everyone's kitties are sooo cute. I love B+W cats, we had one when I was growing up. Never knew about the ginger cat thing either. Our grey tabby cat has decided that the quilt I'm making for my nephew is her new bed! Whenever I pick it up to start sewing I get the filthiest look. She'll come and sit right where I'm sewing so I can't do anymore. Is it sad that I thought about starting a new quilt and giving her this one?

yeah, my mom was stressing out today because she didn't know how we'd take care of two kittens and i told her as much as i'd love to keep both of them so they're not separated and everything, i know that's unrealistic. we'd be at six cats if we did that

we made an appointment for them to go to the vet monday to make sure nothing's wrong with them, and bought them a bigger kennel for them to hang out in. since we don't know if they have fleas or anything, we're keeping them in there but it's a big kennel so there's plenty of room. one of them really likes me it seems, i picked up both of them and one just totally sunk into me while the other didn't seem to want to be held. my mom's named one ginger and the other spice

Well more good news. We took Emerson back into the vet this morning and his numbers were up! The vet said that she believes he will make a complete recovery!

We aren't out of the woods yet (he has to be on meds for the next 4-6 weeks), but we are very happy with the good news.

I'll keep you posted.

It's over 90 and humid here. We are on the third floor, so the apartment is scorching. The cats are NOT pleased! They pretty much lay around as if dead, as stretched out as possible, whining at me when I walk by.

Glad to hear Emerson is doing better

It's supposed to be in the high 80s here for the next three days, then cool off quite a bit again. I'm hoping to put off putting in my two AC units as long as possible, since it really runs up my electric bill to run them. When it's really hot in here, Jack likes to be wiped down with cool wet paper towels, and sometimes I'll give him some ice cubes with his water, but he usually just bats at them and makes a big mess.

Jack just got up on my lap to investigate this new soap I bought yesterday. I let him smell it, and he gagged and almost threw up on my lap. I guess he won't want to smell that again

That's wonderful news! I'm so happy for you.


And everyone's cats are soooo cute.

On the yellow/orange cat thing -- one day my mum and I were taking a day out and at out very first stop we managed to get suckered into taking an adorable yellow and white kitten (the woman had found it in the parking lot and wasn't allowed cats where she lived -- I think she must have lived in a group home or similar because she was obviously quite a bit on the slow side). So plans for the day went out the window and we decided to go to the pet store and pick up some supplies and then head off the the vet. Having an adorable little kitten with us we chatted with several people at the pet store and we all agreed that it was fortunate the cat was yellow/orange because it would be male and as such "fixing" it would be cheaper and easier. We were so sure it was a male we didn't even check.

However, the vet did check and that cute little yellow and white male kitten turned out to actually be a cute little yellow and white female cat. Her name is Mitzi (or HellCat Bitch, depending on her mood) and I still have her.

I have yet to see a male tortoiseshell or calico cat though.

Yeah, Mitzi is "special" all the way through.

She's mellowed now, but when she would get mad she would actually chase us and nip at our ankles. It was nothing really serious, but she can be quite the cranky old girl.

And when my sister was visiting and pushed Mitzi off the couch, Mitzi promptly went in and peed all over her open suitcase and all her clothes. Beth got that message loud and clear!

sorry to hear that the cats were on the verge of death.. such drama queens/kings...

cats are so obvious when it comes to being unhappy.. "written all over their face.. and in their body language.. This just cracks me up!
my cat does this all the time..
