Thor vs. the Fan

There is no more quiet, sleepy jellybean.  There is only ZOOOM kitty who leaps and bounds and tries to maul the oscillating button on the fan.  I missed the opportunity to catch him RIDING the fan!  Kitten Rodeo ya'll.  Real life has started again with Little Hooman and I back in school but he's very happy when we come home.  He has run of the house and we've learned to shuffle our feet and glance down before we step, he's so itty bitty!  But he is fast!  He's learned to kind of stay near the edges of the kitchen counters so he is out of the way of feets.  He's somewhat intrigued by Outside but the front door squeaks enough to freak him out and Princess smells different so he's not sold on the idea (thank everything Holy).  Texi has been play fighting with him so he's learning to Cat quite well, from an expert no less!   The Princess is still unimpressed, but he is infatuated with her long fur.  When he's not attacking hands and feet, he's sleeping on a shoulder or under my chin purring big big.

Thor & Hestia

I had so many hits for my new furkids, I figured a blog would be a great place to keep those interested up to date with photos and antics.   First, a little history on how these little muffins came into my life. Sunday afternoon, Honey (my headship) and I were coming back from doing some running around.  We pulled into the carport to the sounds of a loud by tiny "mew".  I walked around the house but couldn't readily see the kitten, I assumed it was a larger one given the noise and the fact that it was under the house.  I waited a bit, checked back and found a tiny black baby had crawled from underneath into the weeds and cana stalks.  He was little little, his umbilical cord was still attached, but dried up.  I brought him in for Honey to see but he suggested I take him back out in case mom had only gone looking for food.  I put him back where I found him with a bowl of mik for mom.  A few hours later not only had mom never showed, there were two more littles in the weeds!  I gathered them up, made up a box, and put them under the carport while I went to the store for milk & a bottle.  I fed them twice that evening and night and left food for mom.  The next morning the food was gone but the kitten nest looked as though it had never been disturbed.  I don't believe mom came back, if she did...she officially abandoned them that night. Inside they came.  I had already named one in my head, Hestia, even though I wasn't sure if the first one I'd found was male or female.  Once I sorted out what they were, the boys became Thor and Loki, Loki being the runt of the three with a big voice.   I took care of them Monday morning and came home at midday to check on them and feed.  They all seemed to be ok, although getting them to eat was a challenge.  I'd noticed Little Loki didn't have the same strength the other two had and tried to make sure he got his share and more.  My biggest worry is that he wasn't pottying at all...not even to tee tee like the other two did.  That evening I tried again to get him to eat like his brother and sister but he was still weak.  That night he barely took in anything so I laid him on the warmest part of the nest hoping he was just cold still.  I don't know how long they'd been under the house.  I checked on them just before bed and found he'd died.  His brother and sister had cuddled up on him to keep him warm.  My wonderful husband got out of bed to dig a tiny grave for him.  He's running on the Rainbow Bridge.  That just made me more determined to help the others thrive.  The others are on a pretty solid schedule and are tiny but healthy.   These little add two more to our zoo:  3 fish, 2 turtles, 2 dogs, 2 old grouchy cats and a pair of horses at my father in laws farm.  The older cats are not interested in the kittens...Texi-the Old Man-will warm up once they are worth playing with.  But Princess...well, the name says it all.  She's far too diva to mess with children-feline or otherwise.  So here we are, Day 3, they've fluffed out a bit, and chubbed up a bit as well.  I hope you enjoy!

Kitten Naps

The last 48 hours have been a trial for South Louisiana, and we're not out of the woods yet. Our home has been dry but many around us aren't so lucky. Please keep us in your thoughts.  What to do when it's pouring rain??? Nap!

It's Thorsday!

Pics of a very active, very fussy little black kitteh.   I'm only satisfied when I'm either being snuggled or strolling across moms desk, tromping on the keyboard!

He's a CAT!

This little muffin isn't a jelly bean anymore!  He's a kibble crunching, toy killing, toe attacking, fluff machine!  Little Hooman bathed him yesterday, she said he did great, basically purred the  whole time and didn't try to evacuate when she grabbed the stinky Princess and put her in the bathtub afterward.  He eats, he plays, he crashes.  He eats, he plays, he crashes.  Heeatsheplayshecrashes.  No ankle is safe anymore.   Pictures are hard to come by due to excessive running, jumping, and biting....so one serene pic and the latest Thor video!

Thor Baby Window Kitten

He's a witchy window kitteh!  Growing, pouncing, snuggling, biting, meowing, trilling.... Cat. It's really funny though, jumping up- no  problem. Jumping down? A little clumsy.  He's not the catiest cat but he's pretty good for having a hooman mommy.  He really likes inspecting tools & helping with art projects.

Kitten for Sale

For Sale:  1 medium sized, sleek, black, extra naughty kitten. Self cleaning, needs extra pets at bedtime, likes yummy milk & ice cream flavored fingers. Also likes bouncy balls, fuzzy mice, & string. Will absolutely sit amongst your current craft projects to ensure quality control. Will trade for booze.  (No those quilt squares weren't strategically placed or anything. Totally wasn't taking them row by row to assemble. Mom doesn't have final deadlines coming up, it's cool.)

Growing Growing Growing

Growing by leaps & bounds. Weighed in early this morning at 5.1oz! We have officially doubled weight! He's about 20 days old and seems to be developing pretty well given his little bitty state.  He is awake for longer periods & likes when Honey rubs his little belly.  Walking & squeaking!

Toothless Thor Winchester

Introducing...... I got to looking at his little round face & the way hid little ears stick up.... he reminds me of Toothless the dragon from How to Train Your Dragon. We have him, Toothless Thor Winchester, Madame Princess Fluffypants, and... Texi.  (Yes I'm a Supernatural junkie) I had to go back and brighten every photo because he's just pitch black except for his white patch on his chest. He's outgrowing his bunny. A whopping 4.5 oz!

Thor Likes the Bathtub!

When Little Hooman gave him the first bath she said he did great.  She gave him a sink bath and he hung around in the bathroom while Princess had her royal scrubbing. She said he was fascinated. He likes to be where we are all the time so in the bath with me he came! Don't worry there's no NSFW content, just toes and kitty. He almost slipped in a couple times, that was hilarious. He's so active now! The jingly balls have no chance, neither do toes or fingers. He has this awesome little trill/meow that he uses when he's in full swing. He's just an adorable fat ball of black poof.

Thor has taken a lovah.....

We had a round of cat baths this week, the Little Hooman and I.  I'm determined to keep the fleas at bay!  While this time Thor was slightly more cooperative, he was still pretty p.o.'d when I let him out of the bathroom.  I love when he starts drying and his fur poofs out!  (first pic is post bath) As mentioned in the title...our sweet innocent kitty muffin has taken himself a comfort companion.  Little Hooman's birthday was back in January, one of her friends got her this really soft stuffed dog.  All was fine until he stole the dog from her bedroom, we assumed he was just playing with it.  Uh yeah.  Not so much.   Funny thing to me is....he started stealing the dog just before I had him snippy snipped, I figured it would diminish as time went on. Nope.  Just as amorous after as he was before.  And don't take his puppy!  He doesn't get angry, but he will follow you and it wherever you go!  I managed to catch a G rated pic of him just loving on his puppy.   He's huge ya'll.....he's really really not a jellybean anymore.....

Babies Vet Visit

I took the muffins in this morning to see our family vet.  They hadn't gained any significant weight all week and I was worried. He said they were close to dehydration and gave them both some fluid.  They've been fed twice since the visit and ate a little better than they did yesterday. Dr. Lambert is an older fellow who still practices simply because he adores animals, honestly I don't know how he stays in business because he works with everyone who walks in the door. He told me to keep feeding them like I have been, with Pedialyte mixed into their formula. He also told me to feed them water to help combat the dehydration.  He was hopeful but honest given that I don't know the condition of their mother & what she may or may not have had going on. Please keep lifting them up & lighting candles for them.  The muffins and I appreciate ya'lls prayers.  New pictures coming soon.

Kitten Video Debut

It's about 6 minutes, it was taken with my phone and I couldn't clip it down so there's a bit of dialogue, a bit of kitten, and some directors commentary.  Little Thor is so dark, and the lighting is so bad...he doesn't show up well on video   Please excuse my sewing/art room.   This is my first ever YouTube video.  I'm happy that it's my babies.

The 4th Sunday of Thor

Made it to 6.4 oz today! I've been adding bits of wet food fat/oil to his milk & he's eating 8 ml's at a time now. Still sleeping often but waking up & playing & purring more. We're going into his fourth week & I've noticed he can potty a bit on his own. I still stimulate just to make sure.  He's a total snuggle bug & loves to be cuddled up. He toddles around more so I made him a little condo.  I turned his box onside & left his heating pad in there. He's got some rug to explore & stroll around on. He's still so dark is hard to get good photos without using the flash which I try not to do. Thank goodness mommy has so many art supplies! Drawing pad walls yo! Sweet Little Thor with his sweet little face and that little licky tongue!!! Omg.

Thor Sundays

In two days my mini-muffin will be 30 days old by my best guess.  I found he and his litter mates on the 26th of June, four Sundays ago.  While Honey and I are still somewhat on the fence about whether or not he's actually a he or a she, the name Thor will remain no matter what.   I expanded the kitty condo in the spare room so he's got some room to stretch and play.  I snitched two jingly balls the older kitty's had tried to hide and Little Hooman gave a piece of a project she'd made a couple years ago in middle school (basically some craft cotton balls on the end of a small dowel).  There are little cute gentle pounces and he loves to play the belly tickle-finger nibble game.  Awake more than asleep, we have to make sure he's  either with one of us or near us.  I still haven't let the big cats have more than a long distance sniff...still haven't had vaccinations yet and honestly...my big cats are huge, gorgeous, and kinda bitchy.  They might cuddle him or they might eat him...it could go either way.  Hell they might cuddle till the tummy growls....**love love lick lick...chomp** An amazing 9.8 ounces!  He's over half a pound!  Tried a smidge of milk in a bowl lid today...not so much yet.  We'll work on it.  I did add an organic kitty vitamin to his food to help out the skin and coat issue.  The fur is growing in on his little paws but his tail is slowly sloughing off the old fur and new skin and fur is growing in.  It looks rough but it's fine.  The potty issue is much better, I do one day of sugar and one day of Pedialite.  Now he's pottying on a more even schedule and feels much better.  I took some candids today, he's moving so much now...it's like a little fluffy black blur!  Before he lays down to sleep, he cleans his little feets and snuggles under Mr. Bun Bun.   He feels allll the love you guys send, we have a happy jelly bean.

Happy Birthday Thor!

Thirty days ago this little muffin was squeaking for his little life under the edge of my house. He was tiny & cold & his mama was no where in sight.  Now he zooms around the living room, potty's in his own litter box, and loves to have his belly tickled.  He grooms his own toes & loves to be rocked to sleep. We're currently working on eating from a dish; challenging to say the least. I've had pets my whole life.  He makes cat no. 3 and pet no. 10 currently at our house. This little cat has woken something up in me that I didn't even know was asleep. Honey & I are at the verge of empty nest with my Little Hooman headed into junior year & his talking engagement.  Having this baby cuddled up under my chin while I type makes every late night & early morning worth it. He makes me peaceful.  Thanks to everyone who has sent every kind word, advice, prayers, good thoughts, and anything I may be leaving out.  He beat the odds.

He's just so adorable!

August 26 made two full months, he's so bouncy & cute! He likes under the beds, hanging out in the fridge, even got shut in the spice cabinet for a few minutes the other day. He gives the big cats a run for their money & has us on our toes at all times.  Women all around me are having babies... I'm over here saying, "I've got a kitten....!"

Head Boops & Wet Nose Kisses

Our sweet not so little fuzz muffin has decided that running his fat butt up the dining room curtains after invisibles is a fabulous pastime! His neuter  appointment is next Tuesday at Spaynation, I'm sure they'll spoil him.  Life is so hard being an indoor kitty.... all the things to lay around on... the fancy scratchy post to keep the tosies razor sharp....

Kitten Selfies

Playing with my baby. He knows what the glowy thing is for & regularly knocks it out of our hands, but not before he gets his studio debut taken care of. He's a very good sniffer of everything, gotta to check it all out!  His fur is thickening up again, no more Sentry brand flea med, I guess it's the cheaper stuff & a random bath to keep him from itching. Getting that summer fight started early!

Happy Birthday Thor!

One whole year has passed since Honey & I pulled into our driveway & heard little frantic mews coming from under our house. Thor was the first to crawl out from where ever they'd been stashed, his 2 siblings followed. Their mama abandoned them so I brought them inside starving & tiny. Little Loki was the runt, he didn't make it a whole day. And little Hestia went to meet him 2 weeks later. But Thor. Thor fought & survived. I never saw a kitten that tiny & never raise one before. He showed up just in time for me. We rescued each other.  I have always told them they had a whole world praying for them. Our Thor Baby is a long sleek, slightly chubby love bug. I can't believe its been a year!

Box kitten

Final semester of school, spent a smidge of financial aid money on a pretty fabulous new stone setting tool. Apparently the box it was shipped in is super comfortable.... even with the item.... still... in... the box. He squoze his little chubby butt into the remaining space, pushing down all the packing paper  If I fits, I sits.  Last pic is from about a week ago. I just couldn't resist those faces.

      It’s been two weeks and only have essentials unpacked.  This weekend need to get things more situated but tbh Idk where to start.  
      I have to set up my bedroom (mini-me has been away since so I’ve been crashing in her room) and find my kitchen stuff.  And lack of any decor is starting to bother me.
      i think I’m going to treat every box like the LHOP Christmas barrel.  Take out and use the things we need/love/are excited to see again and everything else stays neatly in boxes.
      This will be me tonight if I can find the rest of my kitchen stuff.

      My husband didn’t get the job. That means he still has a terrible commute to a job he hates and we have no health insurance. Trying to look for the positives and be thankful he has a job, but it’s tough right now.
