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?
