Well Remember When I said I wanted a New Kitten.....

Yes I really wanted a kitten in spring.Even dreamed about 2 little kittens one names Lily and the other May.Apparently I whined so much that hubby found me a brother and sister set and we picked them up the first weekend of June.Life has not been the same since then.LOL They were very cute babies that re now changing rapidly into beautiful grown ups that are still very kitty dumb.They are 23 weeks old now and next week go to the vet to be fixed.Anyway back to the zoo...... One day in late July hubby was coming home.Pulled into the drive way and caught a look under a car parked across the street and thought one of our kittens had got out and maybe I didn't notice. Ot popped this incredible tiny little creature crying at the top of her lungs.Where she came from we have no idea but she was bound determined that he was not going to ignore her.He walked back to the house with her following him.She was so small she couldn't make it up the steps and just cried and cried.He came in all huffy and told me she was out there.So out I went and found this very tiny little kitten way too young to be on her own.I took her out back and put her with the cats outdoors but knew she was too young to be out there without a Mom watching after her.I put her up with the food and water and she ate and ate.I got a look into her mouth and knew she wasn't very old.I came in did some talking, told him how few teeth she had, told him I didn't know if she'd survive if a raccoon came after her and then sent him up for kitten replacement milk. According to what I read online she was maybe 3 weeks old judging by how many teeth she had.She is now a goring 10 week old kitten who is very devoted to the guy who saved her. :) It's very cute how she follows him around and just waits for him to say anything to her. So here are a few photos of our zoo May, May and Murphy, Murphy and last but not least Lily

It has ben beautiful here the past 4 days.Almost to the point of being too warm.It's hard to have it 40F one week and then the next it is 77º-80ºf.Have my fruit bushes budding and the veggies in the basement growing stronger by the day waiting until the chance of frost has passed and soon to go into the ground.I love this time of year.************ *********I really want a new kitten but hubby keeps saying no.My Cooper is going to be 10yo soon and I am starting to be afraid I will be without a kitty someday.I still have all of my girls outside.One of the Mom's is still with us and 4 of the kittens that were born but none of them are all that young either.Even though I still call them the "kittens" they were born in 2001 and are now 12 years old and the one Mom is 13.Not a bad age for outdoor cats but they have always had good care and were all fixed young so they don't roam much.I keep hoping one will just show up he can't turn down a kitten that just appears.
