Sassy Sunday (7-2-11) Saturday Blog Hop and Kitten Update

Hi, Everyone!  Sassy here.
I know it's Sassy Sunday, but we are linking to the Saturday Pet Blog Hop because Barb promised and then couldn't get to it yesterday.  That's fine.  I'm the pet blogger anyway. :)  You should check out the great list of pet bloggers on the hop.  Click the link under the picture for one of the hosts of the hop.  Go ahead.  I'll wait.

Great news.  All of our kittens and the momma cat have homes waiting for them!  Yup.  I haven't even gotten to see these little critters (the mom won't let me near them.  She even swiped Ginger's nose!  The nerve.) and they are all spoken for.  That's great.  Barb and family can't keep a bunch of cats.  Anyway.  Here's a pic or two of them.  Don't fuss at Barb about the picture quality.  She took them on her cell phone.
This one is Roxy.  She's the only one with a name.  The other's are "Momma Cat", "#2", "#3" and "#4".  Roxy was "Kitten #1", but her new mom let us know her name will be Roxy.
This one is "#3".  He (or she?) is one of the smaller two.  There are two bigger and two smaller.  We guess that's ok.  Barb, being the geek scientist that she is, has been keeping a log of their weights and everyone is gaining.  Roxy and #2 weigh about 11oz while #3 and #4 each weigh around 9 oz.  It's amazing how much an ounce of kitten is!  The two larger ones look huge compared to the two smaller ones!

Momma Cat is very protective of her babies.  And if they make one little squeak when Barb has them out of the nest, she comes right out and gets them.

Here she is coming to get Roxy.  It won't be long 'til Roxy is too big for Momma to pick her up!

Anyway.  All of their eyes are open.  Barb took them to the vet.  He said they are all healthy and thinks there are two boys and two girls.  Momma had no parasites and is FIV and feline leukemia negative.  If you add those results to the fact that she is super friendly, one must conclude that she was not a stray for long.  Perhaps her family dumped her when they found out she was having kittens?  Anyway, lucky for her she decided to have her kittens here.  One of the neighbors up the street had planned to call Animal Control on her.  Yikes!

So.  What else is new?
Chili continues to get caught with her tongue sticking out.  Barb thinks it's funny to take her picture.  Here, you can only see the tip.  Sometimes it sticks way out.
And that's about it!  We've got family coming tonight for dinner.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

PS - Hi Aunt Barb! (Aunt Barb likes my posts, heehee)

Those kittens are so cute--the pug too. They love to stick out their tongues

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm now following you too.

Love those kitten pictures - from this distance - but in real-life I pulled the Lady Of The House over today when I saw a cat sitting on his front doorstep during our walk. Ooops!

Love and licks, Winnie
