What A Difference A Week Makes

Last night I closed the door to the office room where Kitty was napping, and brought the kittens in from the garage for a visit. They were tentative at first and nervous. But within minutes they got over it:


Hard to believe that just a week ago they were emaciated, frightened and sad.

Look how far they’ve come:

About an hour later, I took them back out to the garage, where they promptly went to bed exhausted from all their play.

I let Kitty out of the office and she promptly carried out an inspection.



“There’s a disturbance in the force.”

Oh Kitty, you have no idea what’s in store for you.  I hope you’ll be a good girl so we can keep your brother.



Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    So nice to see them playing like that. They should make good mousers!

    so very cute! We have feral cats here; one mama decided to have kittens on my front porch. Needless to say those kittens aren’t feral! My inside cat seldom plays with her many toys so I took several of them outside for the kittens to enjoy. I had as much fun watching them play as they had playing! However, none of them, including Mama will be furthering the kitty population. Enough is enough on my front porch!

    Wish you could keep all the kittens. I hope the other/s one/s will be getting an indoor home. Other wise they’ll be coyote/fox/owl/hawk food.

    The video is really nice and enjoyable.

      That’s what we’ll be shooting for, indoor homes, for Muffin’s siblings. Kittens don’t have much of a life expectancy around here when they’re outside.

    They are absolutely adorable. You have taken such good care of them, especially Mittens. How nice to see them so healthy and happy! And I hope that Kitty will approve when she’s finally introduced to him/them.

      Kitty’s approval is tentative and slow in coming, but progress is being made so we’ll see…. Thanks Dianna!

    So sweet! Hopefully with these introductory sniffs you’ve offered Kitty she will be accepting of her new baby brother!

    • Suzanne says:

      Thanks Amelia! It’s a work in progress and coming along, slowly, but steadily. Kitty and Muffin are getting to know each other more every day.

    I’d forgotten what fun kittens can be. Needless to say, at fifteen, Dixie Rose is a bit beyond such play, though she has her moments. I most love the expression on Kitty’s face after checking things out. I have a feeling she’ll do just fine with her new friend — although I’ve been proven wrong by more than one creature in my time.

    • Suzanne says:

      If Kitty was older, we wouldn’t hold out much hope either, but she’s about 7 now, and still likes to play, so we’re hopeful. Thanks Linda!

    The video is such fun to watch! They surely are a lively trio!! I really wonder what Kitty was thinking…Her expression is something else! Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the job ahead of you!

    This is the first time I have seen this shot of the three kittens! How cute. They wear me out just watching them.
