Pooh and Piglet check in

Pooh and Piglet live in a huge brick house in....hmm, would it be Groton out there? Here is their kitten picture from back in January 2005. They were born IN a cage trap at the spay/neuter clinic at the Tompkins County SPCA, so they almost didn't make it into the world. They were ash gray kittens with black masks and paws as babies. I'd never seen such a thing before. To to top it off, their mother, who seemed to be doing fine at my place, one day killed two of the kittens in the litter. I took Pooh, Piglet, and tiny Eeyore out to bottle feed. Mom was spayed and returned to the horse stable where she lived. Little Eeyore turned out to have a heart and lung condition (yes, you can radiograph a 3.5 week old kitten)

So only Pooh and Piglet made it. As you can see, they are doing quite well!

Beth came all the way down for the holiday party. Thanks, Beth, for the photos, and for all the love and security you've given them these five years!

Looks like there has been plenty of honey pots for them! :)

:) The email said they were on low-cal/urinary diet, so I'm guessing the boys are comfortably padded. :)

Hey - This is Amy... I am so glad to see these two boys are still doing well (I knew there was a reason I continued to stalk your blog for the last 4 years)! After all of the drama with their birth it makes me so happy to know they are happy and thriving!!
