3 little kittens
On reading up on cats pregnancies and birth it was said that you may tell that the birth is soon if your cat stops eating. So we were rather surprised after her feast last night, to have kittens in the morning.
Hezekiah was thrilled to have a little cuddle of one of the kittens soon after he woke up. He was one reason I was so glad it wasn't long till the birth. I think he would have been asking every day "when are the kittens coming". :-)
Puss was happy with us coming to see her and the kittens. She would purr away and enjoy a scratch under her chin.
Ruth and Hezekiah enjoying just being close to them.
We brought the box through to the lounge so that everyone could enjoy watching them a bit. And Puss could get some affection from Ruth.
In the evening Rachel and I headed to a Bible study at the farm. They have a "summer program" with a number of students coming to work on the farm through the holidays. They get a lot of bible study opportunity through the week with the official Bible study for everyone on a Friday evening. It was great that we could join them. Great encouragement from the word and then great to meet some new people too. The only negative was that I got bitten by something (most likely just a sand fly or something as small and insignificant) but my body has over-reacted again.
Brendon, Rachel and I all seem to really struggle with these silly bites. And the anti-histamine we have taken has not helped with the swelling.
Saturday 19th: Puss took a little while to adjust to the bigger box. At first she kept herself tucked up on one side. So it's nice to see her finally relaxing a bit more and enjoying the space to spread out.
Their paws are so sweet. They almost look see-through. And we noticed that the claws can't retract yet.
We ended up handing out 126 cards with candy canes. Totally over 8,500 loom bands!!
Ruth and I worked really well together. We got a nice little production line going, with 5 candy canes on each loom. Ruth had some favourite parts, like stapling the candy cane to the card - so she always did that job. She also came up with helpful tips on the actual production (especially finishing them off - she changed it from how it was done on the video she watched). She also searched on-line for an idea of how to keep the curve, and so found that using a bit of pipe cleaner works well. So we got stocked up and had a fun couple of weeks of production. Hannah enjoyed working and earning "computer play" time.
Sunday 20th: Brendon finally got time to wash the van. He really hates having a dirty car, so I know it's been frustrating him for ages. Asher did get sopping wet, but thankfully not once did she try and eat the bubbles or suck the water out of the sponge. Hezekiah just loved washing the tires. :-)
