OK. One final kitten update, then I’ll cover the EMS portion of the Brattleboro Selectboard meeting tonight for you.
The kittens have rapidly become young ladies with distinct personalities. They’ll be 15 weeks old this Saturday. On Thursday they get spayed and adopted! (Thank you kitten donors!)
Margot (grey) likes to investigate any food that she can see. She’s tasted goat cheese, beet dip, cottage cheese, a creamy salad dressing, almond milk, and more. She’s also become quite the techie. She’s hopped up on my keyboard and done some foot commands to open up iTunes and play a funky mixed tape, she’s typed letters into a search box, adjusted the screen brightness, and more.
Bianca is able to carry things she likes around in her mouth. Her latest find is an old catnip-filled mouse. She’s quite possessive of it. Grrrr. Mine! She also acts like the older sister (by an hour or two?).
Both continue to romp and explore. They’ll also hop up on lap and slowly settle in for a purr-filled nap.
Our older cat Mickey isn’t sure what to make of it all, but all cats continue to investigate one other every day for a short while.
Outdoors, we still see momma Mimi and the one we couldn’t catch – Six. Six is large. I’ll be trying to catch that one sometime in August, I think.
Thursday, though, is the big day. After spaying and adoption papers, they are official. I’m still amazed that I’ve known these fur balls since before they were born. Our bond is strong, so it should be lots of fun.
Now, at around 7 or 8 or somewhere in there, we’ll pick up with Brattleboro EMS discussions by the board.
