The kittens now have the run of the whole house during the day and it’s a tiny bit nuts. Fred got this picture of Josephine leaping over (I think) Henri, Katriane’s sniffing the bottom of the stairs, and permanent resident Jake is sneaking up the stairs to see if there’s any kitten food that needs eating. He’s such a helpful boy.
Yes, they’re still nursing. (There are always people who are HORRIFIED when I post videos of kittens this size – they’re nearly 12 weeks old – nursing. But if it doesn’t bother Margeaux, it’s none of our business, is all I have to say. Her time with them is coming near an end – she and Katriane are going home in less than two weeks, and so I think the kittens should soak up as much Mama time as they can while they can.)
I love not only that Margeaux and the kittens (Josephine, Henri and Luc) are napping in the living room, but that Archie is up in the bed on the wash stand sleeping too. He ain’t skeered of no kittens.
Luc and Beauregard hanging out with Mama and Auntie Kat. (Margeaux had actually been bunny-kicking Beauregard, and of course by the time I grabbed my phone, she was all “What? I’d never do such a thing!”)
Luc is having a good time with that tent!
Luc’s face looks exactly like he spent the night out carousing with his friends and thought he’d be able to sneak into the house with no one realizing he’d been gone all night, but he’s BUSTED. Naughty boy.
The kittens are 12 weeks old today! They don’t fit at the milk bar nearly as easily as they did 12 weeks ago, but they give it the ol’ college try. (There are 5 kittens at the milk bar, and I can’t swear to it but I think Josephine’s the one missing.) The kittens will be going for their spay/neuter surgeries two weeks from today, and then will be available for adoption. I’ll do profile posts on each of them at some point when I get my act together, but if you’re thinking you might be interested in adopting any of them (none of the kittens are adopted yet; Margeaux and Katriane will be going home together in a little more than a week), you can email Forgotten Felines of Huntsville at info (at) ffhsv.org to get the ball rolling.
Saying hello to all 6 kittens. (That’s Katriane talking in the background.)
Katriane faces down her nemesis, Earl the Skwerl.
It seems fitting that the sweatshirt they’re on is the Forgotten Felines of Huntsville hoodie I left hanging over the back of the chair, which Fleur and Josephine worked together to pull down onto the floor.
Mighty hunters Henri and Katriane hunt down an ant. Do they kill it? Watch it and see! (And don’t miss the part about 6 seconds in when the ant touches Henri’s paw.)
