They Grow Up Too Fast!

We took the kitties in for another round of shots over the weekend, and they are now both over four pounds! It seems like each time we take them in they double in size (right now they get a set of shots every three weeks). Gizmo is done with his shots, but we have to take Emma in one more time. The vet said since their baby teeth had already fallen out, she estimates they are both around 13 weeks old. We are definitely going to get them fixed, but we have to wait until they are about six months old.


They were both ready to get back home and out of those carriers! Emma handles it better than Gizmo - he was constantly sticking his legs out the holes in the front of the carrier and desperately trying to escape (he scratched up his nose pretty good as a result).

As we arrived home, I noticed Sylvester patiently waiting for his friend Emma to return (we keep Emma outside and Gizmo stays inside).


Reunited and it feels so good.

They love to play together and Sylvester takes such good care of her. He used to be gone all day long and just came home to eat, but now he hangs out by the chicken coop with Emma all day and keeps an eye on her. It's the sweetest thing! As soon as we got Gizmo back to the house, he ran for cover in his cozy spot under the bed and napped most of the day. I guess the visit really took a lot out of him!

  4. They're so cute! Gosh, I haven't had a cat fixed in years, but we used to do it when they were like 8 weeks old! Guess they wait a while now (or maybe it was because I always had males?)

  10. Adorable Tammy and YES they do grow up fast. Tomorrow is my "puppy" Layla's 2 yr old birthday. We also have an ailing 13 year old .. it's very sad to see Ginger get older and are thankful to have Layla's energy around. Her puppy days went by quickly and she brings us so much joy .. as do your chickens and kittens:)

    Our feral kitties are getting tamer, and their Mum has started to disconnect from them now too. They've spent the past 3 nights in the farmhouse now :)
