Hiccup and Daffodil
Hiccup is such a wonderful little boy. He has changed so much. I couldn't put a post and pictures up last Friday as I didn't have a computer. It went to be fixed last week Monday and after a week it was decided that I had to buy a new computer. It is a painful process for me to set up a new computer. I don't have a smart phone nor a lap top so I have been cut off from the email/internet world for 8 days. Back to Hiccup--he has grown a lot. He was 510 g yesterday. He now walks quite well on his legs and has started using the litter box. He wanders through the house as he explores his larger world. He drinks a lot of formula which shows in his growth. Someone is already interested in him so he will be a lucky boy as soon as he is available for his forever home.
I think occasionally that I have seen it all in the kitten world. No, there are still new things to explore. Sunday morning around 3:30 I woke up. When I went to the bathroom I saw Hiccup's heat lamp was off. I was giving myself heck for not having a spare bulb. His cage was cold so I went to warm up his split pea bag in the microwave. I discovered the power was off. So I took Hiccup to bed with me so he could have my body heat. He was a very, very wiggly baby. He was scratching my face with his little claws. I held down the top of the comforter so he would get toasty warm and settle down to sleep. Not to be. He crawled down to my feet so I retrieved him. Then he was on the pillow by the edge of the bed. I retrieved him. I went to get a fuzzy blanket like he has in his cage so it would be familiar and he could settle down. Not to be. He peed on the little blanket so I was glad I had brought it to bed. So after a sleepless hour and a half I put him back in his bed and said I was sorry but what could I do. In the morning (well later that morning) the power was still off so I wrapped him up in one of my big blankets after I fed him to get him warmed up. He promptly fell asleep. Really Hiccup, really? The power came on an hour later so all became right in our world though I was tired all day.
