So since I am super busy it seems like a good time for a Time Travel Thursday. Today we aren't traveling too far - just back to May 31, 2010 to a post titled "They're Here!" - about the day that Gus and Stella came home for the first time!
Gus and Stella are here!! And so far things are going ok - though today there was a storm and the power dipped a couple times (flashbacks to Barney's second day here when the power went out for a few days!) They both are having some eye issues, but I have a lot of eye stuff here so when I call the vet tomorrow to set up their appointment for Saturday I will ask him about which one to try. They are doing well otherwise, and are having fun exploring and playing. They have met all their siblings - they aren't best buddies yet but they are tolerating each other. There is some hissing and growing on both sides but it could be worse. I have found that Da Bird is a great peacemaker because they all like to play with it. I had planned to get tons of photos but so far I haven't because I have been hanging out with them. I did get some videos and some pics - a pictures are below. I have to check out the videos before I post them - some are better than others. Right now they are both asleep in my lap, and the others are wandering aroung. They slept well - they are big enough to get up and down from the bed (using the steps I made from storage bins, which are always there because Kirzon likes to use them too) so I gave them that option but they decided that they like to hang out under the bed snuggling. They are already pros at Thundering Herd of Elephants - they played that last night and this morning. They are using their litter and eating well, so that is a good sign they are comfortable. Their brothers want their kitten food, but so far I have managed to keep them away from most of it (it spilled so I let them have the bits that fell, and Barney did steal a small bag and hide it in his tent but I found it eventually when I hear the noise - I don't think he got too much). All in all things are going very well.
I hope you all had a great weekend and for those of you in the US a good Memorial Day! I will have more updates tomorrow! We will also be back to visiting and commenting starting tomorrow - I have been reading but not commenting and won't be starting back on commenting til tomorrow. We had a MASSIVE clean and organize last week up until pretty much the last second when the kittens got here, then we had kittens to play with - so here is a big Hi Everyone, You are all cuties, we send lots of purrs for everyone not feeling well to everyone we visit - a big group comment! Have a great day!
