Kittens at ten weeks

Not sure if I should carry on with this blog as the kittens are no longer 'foster' kittens but my forever kittens. But their mum Turblow is still a foster cat so I guess I can just about get away with it?
Inky and Pinky who are now Jordan and Perri are still growing and fighting.

(No I did not let the kittens eat the packing pellets)

For Turblow the week have not been so good as on Friday we visited the vets for her nurturing.
They put her in a jumper so neither her or her kittens could get at her wound.... it was off by the time we got home! Dang thing cost me £16 LOL!!! Fortunately I had a cone thing  so all was not lost. OK, so that's not the whole story. When any cat I have has an operation I always get up in the night to check on them. The kittens where not happy being kept away from Turblow and made quite a bit of noise. She I went down to check on them all... kittens fine but Turblow had managed to remove her cone thing!!! *sigh* So I had to put it back on  on the tightest notch. Still able to get a couple of fingers in so not to tight but it must be pretty uncomfortable. Back to the vet on Monday for a check up hoping for no more 'incidents'!
Saturday night all hell let loose when I thought all my other cats were in the kitchen with the door shut. But no when I opened the living room door where Turblow was my little Izzy was the other side... Turbs went for her before I could shut the door and chased her upstairs where she started to knock nine bells out of poor Izzy! I had to get them apart and my hand/arm took a bit of a hit. So much so that today (Monday) I had to visit the doctor for antibiotics and the recommendation of a Tetanus...said no to the shot as I'm needle phobic. Turblow is fine and I have now dressed her in the xxs sized sweater that I already had. I do have to take Turblow back to the vets in three weeks for her second shot and the vet said I could return the sweater...I think it would fit Godfrey!!!!

Kittens are nine weeks old

Today the kittens are nine weeks old and today they go back to Scratching Posts to find their forever family! If your reading this then yes, I did it! I managed to let them go! Sad? YOU BET! Did I cry.... YOU BET! I just have to hope the they find good forever homes and that they stay together.... I so hope they stay together but it's not down to me I just have to cross my fingers and hope!

So last weigh in 

Inky 1520grms

Pinky 1310grms

Goodbye my little ones and have a good healthy loooooong life!

Oh, and fingers crossed for Turblow she is driving me NUTS as she is in season (or as Amy puts it she want's a bloke!) She has peed up my doors and on my bed! She must be half Siamese boy has she got a mouth on her! Anyway due for the op next week and hopefully she will be better after that? 

OK, I lasted four hours! 
I neeeeded my boys! 
They are MY boys (well and Turblows)!

So I went back and brought my boys HOME! I just could not do it. I drove as slowly as I could when we took them to Scratching Posts. When we arrived I could not let go of the cage them I cried. My daughters cried. Inky and Pinky were put in with two other little boys just a day older than mine. My boys were naturally scared witless. Eventually we left and I had to really steel myself not to turn the car around and go back for them. We were all so sad and upset so in the end I phoned Scratching Posts and arranged to come back and collect them. At the moment Scratching Posts have OVER 100 kittens awaiting new families. They are really struggling to cope with so many ADOPT A KITTEN OR OLDER CAT PEOPLE THEY NEEEED YOU! Oh, and if you have a cat or kitten pleeeeaaassseee get them spayed! 
My boys were curled up in a ball together behind the cage door. Not sure who was the happiest to be holding them again me or them? 
This time fostering did not work for me. Will I try again? Maybe, I would like to try....
Inky is now called Jordan and Pinky is now Perri their mum who I'm also hoping to keep but will have to see how she gets on with my other cats. Turbow is now called Ashley Banjo. Yes, my daughters are Diversity fans!
