the one on the left died on friday. dunno how or why. chris found him dead when he came home. it really seems like there is one in every litter that doesn't make it. chris looked it up online - it turns out this mortality rate is actually right-on, although lots of cats die within the first few days after birth. in any case, it was quite a bummer.
also on friday, girl kitten went home with a burly, tattoo-covered fella. he was naming her keisha. :) he called saturday to let me know all was well and she was acting like a bat out of hell. atta girl.
the dot-nose kitten stayed with us at chris's through the weekend. he's a really sweet cat - likes to be scratched, falls asleep on you, purrrrs.. we took him to animal aid last night. a volunteer was going to take him home with her until he looked better - although 9 weeks old, he was the size of a 4-5 week old kitten. :( i guess livin' outdoors gives cats parasites that drain them. i'm glad he's in good, more knowledgeable hands.
he was real cute, though - he didn't like being alone, so i took him in the house quite a bit (despite chris's no-animals-in-the-house rule). when we were gone, we'd put him in the garage with sebastian. if the dog wasn't there with him, he'd cry, but he was fine as long as he had sebastian there. i gave sebastian lots of treats as payment for babysitting.
the weekend was great. saturday it rained, so i had an excuse to stay in bed with a book and fall back asleep. sunday was gorgeous - sunny and a little cool. of course, by cool i mean that you can wear jeans comfortably. it was nice. :) did a little boat ride yesterday with gretchy - she loved it.
saturday night, we went to this place, gatsby's. they wouldn't let chris in because he was wearing a tank top. "we require that our patrons' shirts have sleeves." (unless they're women, of course.) so we walked over to kmart and picked out a $10 shirt. it said "Italian Stallion" and had a picture of a horse. the door guy was really impressed when we came walking back over.. why oh why didn't i get a picture?
now it's monday, and i'm back at work. grr.
