Tonight is my last night with Cap and Winter! Tomorrow they go back to the Toronto Humane Society to be spayed and then put on the adoption roster. As kitten season is just about over and the place isn’t overflowing with babies, adopting these little catlings will be a bit more competitive :)
In that time they’ve come so far! When I took them home, they were only four weeks old, and they were sickly, weak little creatures who could barely walk. They crawled along on their bellies, were new to feeding themselves — there were SO many messy faces — and their eyes were infected and needed medication three times a day. They were barely 400 grams! The THS’ vet confided in me that she didn’t think they’d survive.
And now, look at them: five weeks later, they are healthy, rambunctious little creatures. They race about the room, they spend hours chasing laser pointers and feathers on wands, they scarf down food and scale furniture. Once upon a time they had trouble getting into the litter box, prompting me to trim down the sides, and now they bound effortlessly onto my bed, which is almost three feet tall. They are wonderful… and wonderfully naughty and mischievous!
I’m going to miss these little rascals.
GOODBYE BABIES ;___;
