I am thoroughly winding down and enjoying my home holiday. I’m just pottering about looking after kittens and sorting out the huge backlog of domestic jobs that seem to have built up. The utility room is now tidy, clean and sorted which apart from anything else makes it much easier to spot a stray kitten. I’ve tidied up the craft room a bit and have plans to spend some time in there tomorrow, but it’s definitely a no go zone for kittens, there’s just too much tempting stuff in there for them to completely destroy.
The downside of young kittens is definitely the poop. Especially when they are half asleep and realise they need to go, but can’t remember where the litter tray is. How one kitten can actually contain so much of the stuff is beyond me and the change of diet is obviously taking some getting used to for their poor little intestines. We’re onto our third brand of cat litter now as the odour control version very definitely did NOT do what it said on the pack, the self clumping stuff doesn’t actually clump very well so we’re onto the wood based stuff which has a much better pine smell to start with. Hopefully tomorrow, my covered litter tray with cat flap and odour filter will be arriving, together with a cute little scratchy toy thing for them. My final word on the subject (I promise) is shag pile carpet plus kitten poop – NOT fun! I’m buying shares in carpet shampoo …
They are both fast asleep now, worn out by all their energetic pouncing and bouncing. Adrian has discovered his vocation in life – giant cat climbing frame.
Check back tomorrow for another bouncing pouncing cute video. And if they give me some peace, maybe some more Christmas cards.
