K is for Kittens

One of my favorite blogs is Love and Hisses and right now there is an ADORABLE batch of kittens growing up before our very eyes over there and I just love heading over there every day and seeing how the kittens are doing.  They have other cats in residence, as well, and I admit that I talk about Robyn as if she’s someone I am personal friends with even though we’ve never met in person.

While I’ve had cats in my life for pretty much my whole life (some points when I was in my 20s and still in  the whole ‘unsettled and moving all the time’ phase, I was cat-free, but most of my life, I have had a cat), it’s been a couple of decades since I last had a kitten.  Sometimes I think that I’d like to foster but Mr.POSSLQ thinks that’s a horrible idea and that we’d just end up with a house full of cats. And yeah, I would probably get pretty attached to a batch of kittens that I was around from the beginning of their lives.

Also, I doubt that Crystal would put up with even ONE kitten, let alone an entire batch of them. I think that she sortve likes being an ‘only cat’. Although, it does seem that maybe she misses Willow some, even though they weren’t the best of pals but I think that maybe she misses having another cat around.

I have seen kittens running around the place we live. Apparently they live in the storm drain by the dumpsters (which doesn’t sound ideal to me, but I’m not a feral cat…) I suppose that it’s fairly protected and it’s tucked into a corner so they don’t have constant traffic in and out.

So, for now, I just enjoy the kittens over at Love and Hisses and watch them grow up.  I wish some days, though, that I could nap under a pile of kittens. It’s good to ahve dreams, right?

  1. Since i’ve bottle raised orphaned kittens for over 30 years, i can tell you that you do grow to love them, but if you love them enough you let them go so you can move on to save the next batch.

    My heart goes out to the feral kittens around you, i hope there might be a TNR program nearby that would help trap, fix, and release them, so you don’t get overrun.

    Oh, dear. Was that some kind of issue, talking to people like you know them? 😉

    Actually, I think she would. The one thing adult cats WILL put up with are kittens. I never had any trouble with my cats and kitten. They were all just like, ‘Gee you’re annoying. But cute.’

    Adult cats are entirely different story, which you’d expect from solitary predators.
