It always starts out so sweet.
But in an instant, without warning, it all goes TERRIBLY WRONG.
Then they stomp off in opposite directions, where they fume and sulk for hours.
LAYDEEZ AND GENTLEMEN!
IN THE CATEGORY OF CUTEST KITTENS EVER
THE NOMINEES ARE:
(The kitten formerly known as Charcoal) Logie! (Named by Lesley after the Logie Awards.)
(The kitten formerly known as Stripey1) Newbery! (Named by Catsy after the Newbery Medal.)
(The kitten formerly known as Stripey2) Darwin! (Named after the Darwin Awards.)
(The kitten formerly known as Stumpy) Razzie! (Named after the Golden Raspberry Award.)
So there you go – they’re named. And now I have to write myself a cheat sheet so I’ll learn their names and stop using their nicknames!
Kittens and Emmy are continuing to do well. I’ll admit that they’re a little boring at this age because all they do is eat and sleep and scream like big ol’ babies when they realize they’re more than three inches from their mama. They’ll be lots of fun in a few weeks, but for now most of what I do is sit and watch them.
As you can see from her picture above, the kitten formerly known as Stumpy, who is now Razzie (heh, had to look at my cheat sheet!) is starting to open her eyes, right on schedule.
And now for your Emmy-and-babies video of the day!
The little legs kicking around just kill me. SO FREAKIN’ CUTE.
Here’s the video I found while poking around on my hard drive. It’s from mid-February, and consists of Everett, Sally, and Lucy Peppers leaping around like monkeys. Also present were Corbie, who got in some swipes at da bird, and Elwood, who was trying to figure out why I’d moved the litter boxes to either side of the room (because I wanted to keep them out of the video. You see how well that worked.)
This picture makes me laugh – it totally looks like a set that we put together deliberately and then put Sugarbutt there to pose. He’s doing a nice Glamour Shots pose, isn’t he? I love the way he’s looking at that feather teaser.
