Foster Kitten Friday

It has been another week of play hard/sleep hard in this foster kitty family. I gotta tell ya, Parsley and Rosemary are some kind of crazy girls.

This was the week of:
*Footwear thievery. Thinking about taking off your slippers while you have your feet up in the recliner? You might want to rethink that. For as soon as they come off, Rosemary will stick her head in one of them and slide around the living room with it.
Parsley will do the same.
Decide to switch to flip flops instead? Better not take those off, either. You'll find those shoes will somehow wind up all the way in the kitchen. Every. Single. Day.
*New toys. This week I bought some of these sparkle balls off of Amazon. They each picked a color and have been having a grand time running through the house with them in their mouths. But don't be surprised when you go to refill the water bowl and find one in there, soaking wet. Crazy girls.
*Bird watching. On the iPad, of course.
*Surprise attacks. When these two ladies start running and jumping and leaping and tumbling and sliding and...and...and... they are dang fast. Up and down, in and out, through and around. I even think sometimes they consider us to be cat trees. What a shock Parsley got when she ran straight up my legs and ran into my phone. I imagine my face looked just as shocked as hers did.
*Hair washing. When the gals finish eating their canned food they plop down on me to clean themselves. (Doesn't happen when they eat the hard food, though.) They clean themselves, my blanket, and my hands and arms and legs. And this week Rosemary decided to head to the top of my chair and work on my hair. Thanks for the wash, missy.

Want to help contribute to the work I do with foster kittens? I have an Amazon wish list right here. These are the things I use again and again, year after year. With daily laundry and frequent cleaning, items have to be replaced often. I’d love anything you’d be willing to send my way!

*Sleep. After hours of playing, they finally fall back asleep. When they sleep, they sleep hard and look pretty while they are at it.
They are truly lap cats.
With each passing day, we know the time for them to head to their forever homes is getting closer. We'll have to say goodbye and will never get to see them again. But boy, what joy they have brought us these last couple months.
