Coming Home

We had been worried about leaving the kittens alone for a long weekend -- we weren't sure what we would find when we returned! Well... the kittens were nowhere to be seen. The food had hardly been touched and there was still plenty of water in the dish.

Then we heard a tiny "mew" and found them. They were on the top kitchen shelf. Our cabin is a bit rough and unfinished in places -- they were able to sneak up the attic stairs and over the kitchen wall. This shelf is about 7.5 feet off the ground! There's no telling how long they had been up there, and unable to find their way down. After we helped them down, they figured it out quickly enough, so we had to block the stairway so they couldn't get up there any more. (Especially as this is where I store my teapot collection!)

Oh, and here's an idea of what I've been going through the last couple of weeks while trying to process my pictures. (Not my kitten, but you get the idea -- oh and multiply that by two!) Thanks to TedTam over at LST for the link!

I wouldn't trust those looks of innocence, Stormy! ;)

They would have been fine while you were away, probably playing together and then sleeping most of the time. I've always found with any cat I've had when I've left them for a couple of days, they never ate much, making up for it when I got back. They just love being with you, the company, but they would have been just fine. :)q

Hi Lee,

In all honesty, I was more worried about the house than the kittens! ;-)

Tonight we brought home left-over fish for the first time. They're going after it. Specs gets his piece and carries it off to eat by himself. Pixie is just getting out of the box. But when he comes after her piece, she puts a foot on it.

They're really growing -- and it's really fun to watch them!

Kittens are wonderful. I know what you mean about being worried about the house. One time I left my two when they were still fairly young and when I got home again a few things were not in the positions they'd originally been in when I left! ;)

Oh my goodness, so cute. I would have 100 kittens if I could - I love their big ears and little tails and sideways crab runs.

My newest post has pictures of a cute little kitty who has adopted us recently.
