So last month I took home a stray cat from my workplace. I called her Antigone, and a week later she had two kittens. Well, three, but one was dead. Anywhoo, now their eyes are open and their ears came unfolded, and they look something like cats. So here they are:
Kitten 1, now named Todd. Todd already has a home to go to when he’s old enough. He has a litter box, a bed, and toys just waiting to be played with. He also has a frindly hound dog named Copper. I’m sure they will be the best of friends.
Kitten 2, who has acquired the nickname MV, which stands for Majin Vegeta. (Majin Vegeta also has a M on his head.) I’m considering keeping him as a permanent resident.
Antigone has made a hobby of sneaking up on and attacking my other cat, who is minding his business. I got her a collar with a bell so he could hear her coming. Hopefully she will stop being so aggressive when the kittens are a bit older. I introduced them to the other cat and he licked their ears, so I guess he doesn’t mind them. All is well as far as I can see. I have enlisted the help of a friend in socializing them, he comes over a couple times a week and plays with them for an hour or two. I usually snuggle them while reading a book at bedtime, so they are learning to like being petted. Also, they are learning to meow. Sort of. They sound like they are saying “Eeeww! Eeeww!” Oh, and they can hiss. It’s not very intimidating.
