Jack, Jill & Sonny
Light, Medium and Dark are now Sonny, Jack, and Jill. They get their package (testing, shots, microchip and spay/neuter) on Tuesday. Being the oldest of the foster kittens, they've been allowed out of their room the last few days, and have loved every minute of their freedom. All three found John a very comfortable place to take an evening nap. When I reached for the camera, Sonny woke up and changed positions, but Jack, in front, was zonked out. They'd all been running around for several hours.
Earlier, I found Jack snuggled next to a foster, Trevor, in one of the cat beds. Before you think that my poor cats have to sleep in itty bitty beds, they have a couple dozen places to lay in the family room alone, but Trevor chose the little kitten bed. I can't imagine that's a comfortable sleeping position, but he doesn't seem to mind. Jack is cleaning his paw.
Sonny was waiting for Lucy to come in from outside. Lucy can get out, but we can't because of the downed tree. The ground is so soggy, we can't get out there to cut anything up, so we have no reason to go outside, anyway. Makes for an interesting view, though, to see the door full of green.
I'm a foster mom with Heartland Humane Society based in O'Fallon, MO. In my other life, I'm a quiltmaker, quilting teacher, long-arm quilter, and do programs and lectures for quilt guilds. John and I have one daughter, Laura, who is married and living with her husband, Jason, in Chicago. I have two grandcats, Dexter and Zelda. Laura and her friend, Sallie, have the Vintage Kitchen Recipe blog. If you like cooking, please visit their site.
