Yesterday Mr. C decided to take the girls (Brother is still vacationing with his grandparents) on a fun outing. I was tempted to stay home and tackle a mountain of ironing but decided that I’d rather have some fun with the family instead.
We went to the home of one of our church families. Mr. C had called ahead of time to see if we could visit Mama Cat Sally and her four little kittens. Bookworm and Curly Girl had both visited the kittens previously and were surprised to see that they have grown quite a bit over the last couple of weeks and are now the most playful little critters.
The two black kittens are males, and the striped kittens are females. They are Manx kittens, so two of them have little stubs instead of tails.

No kitten was safe in the arms of Lil’ Nut. Poor kittens!
Bookworm got this little one to fall asleep.
Curly Girl would hold a kitten for about 2 seconds, then put it down and find another one to hold for 2 seconds. My impulsive child. 🙂
The girls had a wonderful time playing with the kittens. All of the kids (especially the girls) have been begging for a kitten for, well, forever. Mr. C really like these Manx cats, and he’s had his dibs on one since the litter was born.
The plan, of course, is that the kitten will be the kids’ responsibility.
Let me interpret that for you:
MOM will be asking, “Has anyone fed the cat?”
MOM will be breaking up fights between the cat and Buddy, our Schnauzer.
MOM will be pulling her nylons from the claws of cute kitty.
MOM will be brushing cat hair off of every garment she owns.
MOM will be scooping out the litter box.
MOM will be shooing the cat off of the leather couch.
MOM will be saying, “Don’t pull the cat’s tail!” Oh, I forgot–this cat doesn’t have a tail.
So, what do you think? Should I throw up my hands in surrender with a smile on my face? Probably, because…
MOM will……….enjoy seeing the delight on her husband’s and children’s faces when THIS kitty comes home to live with us.
