All kittens have now gone to their new homes. After meeting the families collecting them I am more than happy that they will all lead charmed lives with their every want catered for! I was a bit sad to see them go, especially Charlie, but it's also a lot easier to move around the house without the fast moving kittens and there is also no clearing up of pee!! We still have to clean the room thoroughly - which I will do today - and I have said we'll be ready for more tomorrow.

We went to look at a pen for the garden on Tuesday. It is quite big but will fit quite nicely at the end of the garden. We want to continue fostering but would really like to move it outside so hopefully we'll have a pen within the next few months!

Other than the fact I can't hear properly - think water went into my ear in the shower and won't come out - I am feeling quite tired at the moment. Not sure what that's all about...... Managing fine at work but home life is suffering a bit. I was in bed a 20:30 with a headache last night. Fell asleep snuggling on B and after he went back downstairs was asleep 10 mins later..... Ah well, hopefully that means I'll have a good day today and B is cooking a nice meal this evening so want to be good for that as well ;0)

Oh, nearly forgot, we have raised mass murderers, after Whisky's exploits at the weekend Pepsi took up the mantle on Wednesday morning. Fortunately I had already gone to work but B noticed she was making a lot of noise when he was in the bathroom, stuck his head out of the window and she was on the door step with a bird in her mouth...... Thursday morning B was in the kitchen and she wandered in with a bluetit in her mouth...... Where did we go wrong....??!!

Three of the four terrors....! The one at the front is Mali (Beta), the one at the back is Myrtle (Alpha) and the one eating my finger is Charlie. Charlie is going to be homed with my colleague who happens to like the name Charlie!

They are definitely cute but I am now starting to look forward to them going to their homes..... One of them, I think I know which, has decided they don't like the litter we are provided with and will therefore not use it...... I have been clearing up puddles of pee at least once a day since Friday..... We had had a couple of incidents prior to Friday but it then started happening all the time. No poo found where it shouldn't be, yet. They were due their first vaccinations this evening but due to a staff incident (bereavement at a guess) we have been moved to tomorrow instead. The first two (Mali and Myrtle) will still be going to their homes as planned assuming they don't have a problem with the vaccine and Charlie and Maisey (Delta) weren't going until later in the week anyway.

Moving on to an older, murderous, Ripper like cat...... Whisky kindly brought me a live bird Sunday morning. I got the bird and placed it in a quiet box in the kitchen, where it died. Around 2pm Whisky brought another live bird. I rescued this bird around 3 times over the course of the day until Whisky eventually killed it. I didn't have a good day yesterday, found the bird slaughter quite upsetting really...... Still Whisky is designed to do that, doesn't mean I have to like it though.

Can't believe the lot at the top of the page might/probably will turn in to killers......!!

Shiny New Design

For the first time since I started my blog it has been given a revamp! Courtesy of Blogger and its new themes etc! I am quite pleased with the outcome but may tweak a little further - it is so easy!
