So...


This was going to be my radio silence day, since I have nothing useful to contribute to any thoughts, discussion, argument, whatever. (Except sympathy for anyone who's feeling badly in any way, shape, or form, today.) My personal choice for recognising this date is to keep my fucking mouth shut. As well as quietly wishing that people who are utterly unpossessed of sense or tact would by some miracle become aware of this fact about themselves, and choose to do likewise.

But...

To anyone whom I might have said, with great earnestness, "Honest! There were never supposed to be five cats! Never!" ...

There were never supposed to be eight cats! Never!

(As of 12:30 this morning.)

*hangs head*

Two of them are tortoiseshell, so 98% chance that at least those are girls. One is gray. We *think* that's going to be all, but can't be sure.

ETA: Yup, that's all. Black cat + ginger cat = pretttty torties. And gray looks to be the sort that'll grow up fluffy. :)

Oh my. Cats not spayed? I'd offer to take some, except, expose me to a cat and I get to go to the ER within about twenty minutes or so...

Of our original 4, one of the males is spayed, and one of the females. Which was all fine and dandy, since with one spayed male, and none of them being allowed outside, there wasn't an immediate priority with getting the remaining girls fixed.

Then we took in a stray who graced us with having kittens next to our garage... Found a home for her, but not her one kitten who survived. Who's male. And not quite a year old, now.

So, we were hedging our bets on how long we could get away with not getting him neutered. When he's old enough (our vet wouldn't consider doing it until he was 6 months old, which I think is ridiculous) , when the weekend for taking him in is convenient, when we have the cash on hand -- and, essentially, we fucked up.

and that one kitten absolutely adores you, mp. he follows you around like you are his mamma, and does such annoyingly cute things to attract your attention.
he really is sweet.
