On certain Mondays, I have featured a post called Monday Muse. It's obvious that today's title is a play on words, once you see this very cute photo!
My cat, Lola, had kittens on May 12th. I knew she had at least three, but she promptly removed them from the birthing chamber (aka "cat house") to a safer spot, as cats are known to do. I left for vacation two days later, and when I came home, the kittens were still nowhere to be found. It seemed as though she was regularly producing milk and that something was nursing. However, try as I might to find the kittens, I couldn't seem to locate them...
Just as I had given up hope and thought the kittens were probably dead, Lola emerged with her brood. That was three weeks ago, and the kittens are just beautiful, friendly little bundles of fur!
Since Monday Muse always has a poem accompanying it, here is my little verse I sang to the kittens:
"Pretty little kittens, playing with each other...Which is a sister and which is a brother?"
From the top of the picture, counter-clockwise, we have Silver, Micah, Willow, and Rosie.
Silver is the boy and the others are girls.
I thought I had homes for two today (Silver and Micah), but they backed out at the last minute. They are missing out on two very sweet kitties. I will keep trying, although I am keeping Willow. She is too special to part with!
And, Lola will be spayed shortly (in case you were wondering)...
