Burp, Fart, and Hiccup

Don't worry, they'll get better names, but right now these names fit them.

These kittens came from the Lockwood Colony. The original population of six cats was fixed in 2002. Of those, only one, Gray Boy, remains. (We caught all six of those cats in two hours). But someone dumped two female cats and these three kittens on the landowner, who is older and cannot afford to keep them. She discovered the kittens in her shed today just as I was getting ready to head out of town. She already had one in a box, and two were in a piece of drain tile pipe, and boy, did they hang on when we shook them out!

When Carol had first called about the two females, I told I'd get them fixed, but that I could not take them now, as I was full up. I planned to bring over more shelters for her. But four-week-old kittens...well, they can't stay out there. I'd vowed I'd only take cats from my own colony caretakers, and guess what! Three kittens from a colony caretaker!

When I arrived home, the heavens opened up and it began to pour and thunder.

Luckily, the kittens all ate heartily of wet food, and one is even crunching away on dry.

I am sorry to say that if I had cats.. they *might* have ended up with names like that :))

They're adorable!

I am new to your blog, just wanted to say the kittens are so cute. I love the names, even if only temporary. I had a cousin that gave her kittens nicknames like popcorn and gravy
