So, I've got a blog . . . Now what?

Everyone seems to be jumping on the blog bandwagon so I thought I'd give it a go as well. Haven't really got a clue what I'm going to talk about, but that's never really stopped me from saying something, so . . .

Feeding frenzy

Mouse and Heru Mouse and Heru Mouse Heru Rainbow, Mouse, and Heru

You would think the poor things had been starved to death. Mouse and Heru are such little piggies. Every time they hear the rattle of the dry food bag or the swoosh of a can being opened, it's like it's the first time they've ever had food and are on the verge of perishing from hunger. I have to give my son credit for being able to photograph the kittens while he holds a can of food for them to attack.

Well, Rainbow, Mouse and Heru went to the vet last Friday. Rainbow and Mouse for their last checkup and round of shots until next year and Heru for his first of four or five visits. Rainbow weighs in at a skeletal 5.2 pounds while Mouse is an emaciated 4.9 pounds. Heru, being the youngest, weights in at a meager 3.4 pounds. Given how not well we suspect Heru was taken care of, the only bad effects from his prior home is a case of hookworm for which he is being treated. Neither of the other kittens have gotten the worms, and I suspect neither have the older two cats, since all of them are on Revolution.

It's been a week and a day since Heru joined the household and I have to say that he integrated himself rather well. I'd say it took him all of 10 or 12 seconds before he made it known that he wanted to play and he wasn't going to take no for an answer. Other than the first night when we kept him separated because we weren't sure what would happen, he's had the run of the house - and yes, I do mean that literally. He chases Rainbow, she chases him. He chases Mouse, she chases him. He is not the least bit put off by Mouse who must play with him even when she doesn't want to play anymore. Miss Muggles, on the other hand, has managed to get the upper hand. When she's done playing, Heru leaves her alone . . . and goes after Mouse.

It has been a really interesting experience having three kittens running around the house. Between the two of them, Mouse and Heru share one brain cell and it's sometimes difficult to tell which is in possession of it. The Muggle Monster has all the rest of the brain cells so she's far too clever for her own good. She knows when she's done wrong and she always looks so guilty while the other two just look confused.

Three kittens and two cats live in the house they graciously allow me to share with them. Heru's only been in residence a couple of weeks but he already owns the place.

As for the prodigal son, I think I've got a picture of him up somewhere. I'll look . . .
