So, as you might remember, the feral momma that we haven't been able to trap yet had yet another litter. Well, this time she had it in the downstairs portion of the back building.

Last night, [community profile] raindrops and [profile] vflig caught three of the kittens without a trap. This morning, [profile] vflig and I caught number four. Two grey tabbies and two solid grey (possibly dilute torties). So now we have 4 of the cutest little kittens, and the trap again set for mama.

In other news, I'm now officially part of the idle poor underclass. I drank a bottle of raspberry wine before noon. It was my severeal servings of fruit for the day, don'cha know...

So, the feral that hangs out in our back building had another litter, and we trapped them all. We still have two, about six months old, from the last litter that we need to find homes for.

We are trying to trap momma to get her fixed, and we think she's preggers again.

The two oldest are gray stripey, a boy and a girl. Both are a bit insecure (we caught them a bit older) and would prefer to be only cats. Both are fixed, and current on shots. We'd like reimbursement for the cost of the vet.

The kittens are darling, use the litter, eat dry food. One looks siamese. They aren't fixed yet, but are getting socialized.

I keep trying to get my roomies to get pictures.

There is something soothing about waking up with a cat cuddled into what would be your lap if you were sitting up. Speckles will sleep in my bed if I lie still. Also, she will climb onto my chest if I'm lying on my back, wanting pettin's. She also meows in the outside cat run when I go to work, and when I come home.

I fell bad about Collette - I purposely didn't try to bond with her or get really affectionate so that [livejournal.com profile] datapard could. But she still comes into my bedroom when I go to bed, but she doesn't sleep in my bed. She is not as affectionate with me, and only slightly warmed up to [livejournal.com profile] datapard. I feel like she ended up the bastard stepchild, and I didn't intend that. Collette also is really bad about not burying her poop - it's like she doesn't quite have the idea, or is ticked off about something. She makes the motions, but outside the box. Then again, she makes the burying motion about their food, too....

So I took the girls, Collette and Speckles, to get spayed, etc, today. Question and picture )

Yesterday, the UPS guy decided we were on vacation, so he didn't deliver [livejournal.com profile] datapard's stuff, nor the remaining gifts for my teammates. They did the same thing today!! Growl!! I'm not the only one, I know - usually there are a stack of packages every day.

In other news, the kittens peed on my bed... with me in it!! Grumble! I didn't wake up at my usual time, so...

They are now willing to sleep without hiding. Both are willing to let me pet them now, and boy, do they purr. They still aren't climbing onto my bed, but it shouldn't take long. Once they do, they'll realize that it's heated... ;-)

[livejournal.com profile] datapard was playing with them today. They still are less sure about her, but she hasn't spent the same amount of time I have.

In crafty news, I'm working on yet another cotton string bag. 12 ply natural cotton yarn, size H crochet hook, about 8 hours.
This morning, after the 6 am *scamper*, I was blissfully in my Saturday morning doze. Suddenly, there came a yowling, hissing and scrambling from the bathroom. Thinking that the girls were having a knock-down, drag-out fight, I went to check.

I have nice, long curtains in my bathroom, with lacework at the bottom. Collette had gotten one of her rear claws caught in it. The curtain is firmly attached to the rod, which is screwed in to the wall. When I walked in, she tried to climb my left leg to escape. When I sat down to try to free her, she tried to climb, and "kill" my right leg (which is my gimpy leg.) Every time I got close enough to try to free her claw, she went for my hand or my leg - usually my leg.

I limped out, bleeding from where she tried to kill one of my toes, and got the fingernail clippers. When she stopped thrashing as much, I carefully clipped the lace, trying to keep my hand out of the shredder. When I got her free, she was able to retract her claws and run and hide. She seems none the worse for wear, as she was back to playing a little later.

I put the curtains up out of the way, and spent a few quality minutes with a box of bandaids. Silly kitten.

On the bright side, I was able to pet Collette without having her eating. Her purr is bigger than she is!

4:45 am... *scamper* 7:30 am... *scamper* *attack* *scamper*

They actually climbed on me in my bed last night, but scrammed if I moved. They're coming along.

In other news, I played geek-claus today at work. "Choose: soap or chocolate!"

I still have some stuff coming, and I haven't figured what to get one person... I got 'em something practical and portable.

*scamper* at 6 am.

I got a few pictures of them playing last night. A lanyard, a foot to dangle it from, and they had to play!

This morning I got my old creaky bod onto the floor, poured out some food into their dish, and set it on my knee. I also took some in my hand. Needless to say, I had Speck Tortie eating out of my hand, and both of them eating out of the dish on my knee. No pictures, unfortunately.

Speck is definitely the braver girl. She tends to get the lions share of chow, too. So I try to make sure that Collette gets her chance too.

This morning about 7 am, I awoke to *scamper*. The girls now have run of my room, and were enjoying the freedom. They still run from me, but now they are hiding in the closet, which is warmer and bigger.

I get to go home, give them food, scoop the litterbox (which I do whenever I go to the bathroom), and activate kitten mode with a feather chase stick. I hope they haven't torn up my bedroom too much in their exploring...

Well, they like their little holes in the wall, but I did get Speck to venture out a little bit today. She came out and proceeded to chew me out about lumps in the litterbox! I gave them some moist food, but they didn't come out for me yet.

I think they're still getting used to all of the thumps, rattles, and noises associated with this house - including the neighbors dogs barking and the train going by behind the house!

*I still ded form cute!*
