UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Vet Visits and Pictures

So today was the kittens second vet trip, for their second set of kitten shots and to check on their worm issue. The trip was good - some meowing but mostly pretty calm. We got them weighed and they are huge - Gus is already 5 1/4 pounds, and Stella is 4 1/4. Their siblings Cosmo and Louise were there and Louise is 4 and Cosmo is 4 1/4, so that tells you that Gus is a BIG boy! They were both very good and very curious - they got their shots and didn't complain or fight, and they got checked and the good news is that they are worm free! They go back in 4 weeks for their final set of shots and then we will probably be able to schedule their spaying and neutering - Gus is actually big enough now but I want them to be able to go together. While we were there we got to say hi to Louise and Cosmo - they are both such cuties, and you can totally tell that Louise and Stella are sisters. The trip home was good, and they were glad to be here - because they got their breakfast, which they ate fine. Now Gus is napping next to me and Stella is sitting on a nearby chair (she came over then decided she needed to do a big of exploring). And, in what is a surprising first, right now Banrey and Lola are sleeping next to each other on the couch - I will try and get a picture to post but I am not sure that will happen, because knowing my luck they will wake up when I try. Anyway, here are a few assorted pics of everyone.

Wowza, Gus and Stella are growing like weeds! (especially Gus) We are glad they don't have any problems now.

PS Virgil, I can't wait for your party tomorrow!

Hurrah for a successful vet visit! The kittens *are* big! Here, they will spay/neuter when the weight is 3 lbs. Still kind of small (and young), IMO, but that's how it's done at so many shelters (I presume).

LOVED the pics!

A very happy July 4th to you all (we had our Canada Day on the 1st). Have a safe and fun weekend!

Glad to hear all went well at the V-E-T. (I don't like to say the word out loud.) I can't believe you are all so good there. Also, your pictures are all SO cute. I especially like the ones of everyone snuggling. Hope you all have a great 4th! (Oh, and thanks so much for your help with my blog!!)

What sweet cats snd kittens, I love it when they sleep in a pile like that!

Of course, had you moved to take the photo they would have changed positions, followed you... the cute moment would be gone. That's why I have my cameras on me all the time, and still I miss the good stuff. Gus is big, huh? I'm learning. Love that you got them tested instead of just "bombing" their little systems - which is what my vet wants me to do.
