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!!

Happy Gotcha Day Gus and Stella!!

Hi Everyone! So today is Gus and Stella's first gotcha day! Because of the crazy with blogger lately, and my total disorganization, I wasn't able to get a super awesome party together - and after Barney's birthday well, that seems a litttle soon anyway. So today I decided to re-post my first post about them being here - it actually was posted the day after they arrived, but it is still fun to see.  I hope you enjoy it! I can't believe it has only been a year, but that it has already been a year - you know what I mean? I can hardly remember what it was like before they lived here, but it is hard to imagine they have gotten so big already!! 

Anyway, here is that first post from when they moved in - titled They're Here!

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!
