Popping in to say HI!

My… How time flies!  

And NOT the kind of  “Time Flies” in one of Grammy’s designs, either! 

It’s been around four MONTHS since we last posted a blog.  I’ve been talking and talking to Grammy about it and she finally decided to let us post, especially with what happened this last week!  I’ll let Gimli tell you about it…

Gimli:  GUESS What! For a couple of days, we’d been hearing something crying under the bath tub! I’ve been whining and telling Grammy about it, but she said we had to wait a day or so to see if a Mama came back. She didn’t, so Grammy got Uncle Manuel to crawl under the house and find out what was crying. (This is a vid is of Mama Dott listening)

THIS is what Uncle Manuel found!

It was a LOT louder after it was rescued!!!  

Since I told Grammy about them and INSISTED she DO SOMETHING, I feel like they are MY kittens!  GrandPaw Robert says I'm a good Mommy, but Grammy says I'm a good DADDY! I think this guy, with his LOUD voice, AND I saved these babies lives!
Here are the four babies that Uncle Manuel pulled out. He took the black one and the Siamese home with him, and I have the two little tigers until they get old enough to find homes. Grammy thinks they are around 3 weeks old now.
Grammy didn't even know there were any cats around, though WE've thought we might have seen one out of the corner of our eye every once in a while, and we've tried to tell her about it/them...

We are keeping them in a large pet carrier so they will be safe from Auntie Sadie who thinks that kitties are some kind of squirrel or something.  

I stay close to it and keep an eye on them and warn her if she tries to get close!  My babies and I touch noses every once in a while through the door.  

Whenever they are out of the cage, I try to stay close to them and clean and protect them. 

Papa won’t let me up on his lap where Pippin is, though, when he holds my babies, because I growl at Pip.  I told him that he’d better NOT mess with them!  

Pippin:  I really don’t think I like the idea of baby kitties around here!  What if Papa decided he likes kitties MORE than ME?!

Just LOOK at the NERVE of that little thing… Here it is scratching Papa’s arm…

And HERE it is BITING him!    

 I’m a little worried…

Mercy:  I’m glad I overheard Grammy say the kitties can’t stay once they get old enough to find good homes because she is allergic to kitties.

BG:  Another reason we can’t keep them is that they can’t stay in the house and if they go outside, they get out of the yard and the coyotes get them, so Grammy doesn’t want to hand feed them and fall in love and then have them get eaten…

Dott: I am just glad we can get some sleep now that they aren’t SCREAMING anymore!

I wonder how they got there and what happened to their momma because they are for sure too little to be all alone. I'm glad you alerted your humans so that they could be rescued.

Been missing you guys. Momma has such a busy brain lately that she has not been helping me send emails to check on my pals so I am relieved to see that you are all looking fit and happy.

I am so glad to see a post from you Linda - I have missed you so very very very much.

You are right - those cats are cute - but you can't keep them with your breathing girl. It is for your own good.

They are all adorable.

Miss you.
