And Then There Were Five...

A pile of cuteness

   We are foster-parenting a mama kitty for our vet.  My son's cat was recently diagnosed with an enlarged heart and congestive heart failure, and our sweet vet knew that having a slew of kittens to take care of would be good for all of us.  Mama cat arrived last week and settled in nicely.  Saturday, during the night, she had four kittens, and it was like Santa had come Sunday morning when the kids got up.  I was hoping that they'd get to witness the birth, but the kittens are irresistible, and the kids are already in love with them.  They are only temporary guests, though.  When they are weaned, they'll go back to our vet to be placed for adoption.  With three cats and a dog, not to mention all the smaller critters we have, we will have to let them all go.  But, for now, we will pamper them and shower them with attention and love.  Does staring at kittens all day count as science?

Guess what I did?
