Yet another new baby--it is pouring kittens

This is my newest baby girl who arrived this morning.  She is a polydactyl so has adorable feet.  She is happy to be playing with her "brothers and sisters".  She is happy to be in off the downtown streets.  My house certainly is busy with 10 babies running around though only until the beginning of next week as Tamryn got adopted today and is going to be picked up on Tues or Wed.  Things happen quickly around here sometimes.

July 29/11

.   .    .    .   Tristan got adopted on Tuesday and will be a treasured kitten.  I will miss my sucky boy who lived to be on my lap and to sleep in my bed.
.    .   .    .    .Welcome to my 5 new babies who arrived last night.  Three girls and two boys so now I have 5 girls and 4 boys.  They are a little older for me being around 10 weeks old.  They weren't sure of being in the house last night as they were dumped on a doorstep of an acreage.  They are a bit dirty so were outside kittens.  They are settling in and starting to enjoy life in my house.  Names to be picked today so I will update later.

you can't watch a kitten sleep and not feel your heart sing

You just have to smile when you watch baby kittens sleep.  Tamryn (second picture) was sitting and as she started to fall asleep slowly fell over on her side until she was sleeping on her tummy.  Yesterday was a good sleeping picture day.
.   .   .  .   .Jamieson got adopted by the lady who found him in 30 below weather when he was 4 days old.  He tugged at her heart and she couldn't pass him by.  I miss him as he was my little darling for a very long time but he has a great forever home.
.   .   .   .  A lady has fallen in love with Ivan and is trying to patiently wait for him to be big enough to come and live with her.  She has a fluffy female siamese so Ivan will be a perfect fit.
.   .   .   .  Ike and Ivan are growing and growing.  When they came in Ike was 348g and Ivan was 276g.  Now Ike is458g and Ivan is 448g.  They are starting to play with toys and each other.  They both like the cat condo.  Ivan likes to come down the hallway to my room in the morning once he knows I am awake.  They are pudgy little boys and I sure love pudgy babies.

A long overdue update

Where to begin?  The baby season has been slower than normal which is good for the babies who are not in trouble.  On April 25 my mom was diagnosed with tonsil cancer and the next 2 months were incredibly hard as we dealt with the cancer.  It has been an exhausting ordeal as I dealt with my feelings and my mom's feelings when I discovered she was not acting like the mom I knew and loved.  She passed away on July 5.
.    .     .     .  These are my 2 new babies--Ike is the orange little boy and Ivan is the fluffy siamese little boy.  They arrived a week ago yesterdya.  They are on the bottle though Ivan is starting to dig into the canned food.  They are very pudgy sweet little boys.  Ike is the adventuresome brother and was the first to climb up on the couch and into the play tunnel on the cat stand.  They are growing nicely.
.    .    .     .The other 4 kittens (Jamieson, Tristan, Tessa and Tamryn) are at Petsmart this week.  They are waiting for their forever homes.  Jamieson has beautiful fur and is an affectionate baby.  Tessa is a small girl and will be a small cat when she grows up.  Tristan is a real "mama's boy".  Tamryn is a quiet girl who loves her cuddle sessions.
.    .     .    .I promise to put more posts on my blog as the "normal" life I have longed for begins to return.
