New Kitties, Calming Down & Tommorow Is A Brand New Day :0)
Alright, it's 8pm. Lee is in bed. Kittens fed. Talked to my friend Debb. I feel much calmer. What a day!
I hope you like the pictures of the kitties we are taking care of right now. About a week ago I heard their cries. They were under a hosta plant by my front porch. There were 5 of the tiniest kittens I had ever seen. Maybe only a day or two old. I left them alone thinking the mother cat would return. After 2 days and finding that 3 of the kittens were dead. I had to take matters into my own hands. I brought them in and have been hand feeding them. (the first 2 pic's were the first day we had them. The others are about the 5th day)
The tiger cat is a female and the black and white a male. I named the girl Jade, because she's a gem and of course my dog's name is Jasper(our little gem). The boy cat is a good eater, calm. quiet and pretty strong so I named him Jake. Seems to suit him. Jade cries a bit more and loves to be held close. It's funny how in a week you can see they have personalities!
When they sleep Jake will lay his leg over Jade. Such a sweet sight. But what's really cute is Jasper(our male Yorkie) is cleaning the kittens. I never knew a dog would do that.
Well, I know I haven't posted a thing today craft related. But tomorrow is a new day...for a stamping related post. I promise! :0)
Till my next post...
