Foster Kittens Update

The foster kittens are getting more and more playful with each passing day. Today they are everywhere! They are running, jumping, wrestling and having a grand time. There's still one that is very touchy and if you pick him/her up when they aren't expecting it he/she yowls like you're hurting him/her. It is just a fear based reaction so this one will need additional handling. In my spare time...

One of the females is the smallest of the litter and I call her Booberry. I don't like the names Inky and Soot for two of them and wanted to change the female's name to Blueberry but the shelter nixed it and told me I could call them whatever I wanted to. So, Booberry she is. Her favorite place is to lay in the windowsill above the kitchen sink.

I think this is one of the males but I'm not certain. We'll call this one Ace of Spade (instead of Soot).


And Raven's newest favorite thing is to snoopervise while I spin. He sits on the treadle or puts his paw on the wheel as it is spinning. Needless to say, spinning has been a slow venture today with his "help". He's obviously decided that the spinning wheel is HIS!
I tried to get more photos today of the kittens playing but the flash was turned off on the camera and the shutter speed was way too slow to catch any action shots. Here's one where I tried. Magpie is in perpetual motion! I took another one after this but by the time the camera clicked I got just the wad of tissue paper in the photo - the kittens were long gone.

I think Raven wants to be an apprentice spinner! They all look like a handful - fun, but a handful!

They are so cute! Wish we weren't allergic to cats. I love them!

Aw, who cares what you call them because when they get a home, they'll get a new name, right? We always laugh when we look back at our kitty adoption papers and see their "names".

They sure are cute and "helpful"!
