“A little pile of love and paws”

…or so a friend of mine called the picture of the kittens in the basket.

Here are the latest pictures of our webmistress, Nishiko, and her protective brother, Hiroshi.  They are getting nearer to adoption age!  Their current two-legged guardian tells me that they play together a lot, so I’m very happy I’ll be able to take them home together.  As a reminder to all other kitten guardians, I’ll be having Hiroshi fixed before he reaches four months – probably at about the three month mark.  I’ve heard of females going into first heat as early as four months so I’m being extra careful.

As of Monday, they were six weeks old!  They are using the litter box, have been weaned for a couple of weeks, and are roughhousing with their mother and each other.

Enjoy the pictures!

Webmistress Report – 4 weeks old!

She’s turning into a real beauty, even if her ears stick out to the side in a rather amusing fashion.  And it ‘s nice to finally see her cute face!  She’s got that lovely little fluff of orange hair just like a cute little redhaired girl.  We’re likely to call her Nishiko.

I’m still itching to meet her but have a month (at the very least) to wait.  Latest reports say that she’s running around and swatting her siblings and learning to play.
