Kittens.....

There is a reason my bumper sticker reads 'The more people I meet, the more I like my dog.'

This week end while at the creek, there was a pile of bags and plastic from where some one had been stripping electrical cables for the copper. Standing right behind the bags were two kittens who seemed shocked to see me. The first kitten was an easy catch as it was a bit more bold and fearless than the smaller kitten. The second kitten, well, lets just say it wasn't that the little runt was a fast mover, but rather the brush was over my head and hard for me to plow through in flip-flops, took another 30-45 minutes to catch.

The kittens were so skinny you could feel every rib in their bodies and did not have much energy at all. Once home they snarfed down some of Miss Kitty's softened food and proceeded to hide behind the commode and sleep hard. For two days that was pretty much all they did except for shred the toilet paper. Today, was a whole different story....lol

Thing One (caught first) and Thing Two (caught second) are now very excited to see everyone. They are playing hard and doing very good with the litter pan thing.

Thing One will walk right up to you and plop down for a belly rub, where as Thing Two is a real climber preferring not to sit still. Thing One loves sitting in your lap for some good scratching and Thing Two is a real climber.......lol

It just really ticks me off that someone dropped these two kittens off along the side of the road thinking they could care for themselves! What the H*LL is wrong with people?

No need to tell me that. Thing Two was the worse for wear, but he is just now showing signs of wanting play which is a relief. Thing One is a ball of energy and twice the size of his brother. They are pretty cute how they will follow us around just wanting to be near someone.

OHHHH they are cute now, but just wait...after Furbee died I thought it would be "fun" to have akitten for the first time. Don't get me wrong it is a BLAST but what was I thinking? His name is Moskito for a reason. Constantly buzzing arround and just generally annoying. Have fun with the little ones they are better than TV. P.S. try giving then a paper bag to play with...he he he he :) Heather Miller

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
