We Raise a Little Heck



You may remember that this position was also Fergus's favorite place in Portland. They look angelic at the moment but that is because they just got here and it is a big strange house.

The drive to Portland went well, though Harper yelled "Are we there yet?" most of the way. (Thanks to Magoo, Smudge, Bella and Dolce for the translation).

Ramona, The Queen of Cool, slept in the car carrier with the door open. (I have come to the conclusion that she is the brains of this duo.) Harper, of course, had to be held and watch everything going by. On the way there is a turn where one way you are going to the V-E-T and the other way you are going to Portland to visit Uncle Sid. Brendan knows which is which and he sat up ....

"I really hope it's Portland and not the vet."

We made the turn.

"Good," says himself and sits back down. He was happy since his car seat was in front and he got to ride shotgun with Olof. He likes to navigate.

The kittens are having a grand time. They discovered going up the down staircase and that Uncle Sid gets to dine on Fancy Feast and they have to suffer with Wellness Kitten Formula. And yes, the crash I just heard was "the vase that was commonly thought to be Ming." No kidding. It didn't break thought. Good thing my in-laws find kitten antics amusing.

At the moment the kittens are using the couches as trampolines.

We'll be heading home today. Spring is busting out all over at Caturday so there is a lot of spring cleaning and gardening and landscaping to work on. Not to mention video projects.

Ramona sure sounds like she will be the brain behind most mischief. Glad the trip went well. More "are we there yet" to come today I guess.

It sounds like you had a great trip! We know our way to Dr. Vet too, and we get very frightened when the turn is made. Brendan has more guts than me, I think!

I hope every who reads your blog finally understands the benefits of adopting two kitten siblings. I can see in my mind Brendan sitting up in the car at the turn off to the Vet. I can just imagine him saying to himself. What the Heck? No one said anything about a Vet visit. If those two kittens are forcing me to go to the vet with them, there will be a cuff or two dished out later.

I would never adopt one kitten again. Twos are it. These guys are so happy to have each other and they entertain each other and us. It makes them feel more secure and they are very affectionate with us from their security rather than neediness.
If you have a single kitten they may be more attached to you if you play with them every day and you may be closer but I like it that the kittens have their own society.I think a single kitten can be lonely for someone who understands him. H and R are sleeping together upstairs, exhausted from their exciting trip.

I absolutely love these stories you tell. There must be a book for you in her somewhere. Richly illustrated of course. I too, could picture the V-e-t turnoff and the relief crossing his face when you went the other way. Totally agreeing about the 2-kitten theory. sss's mom (So glad Miss R is mended!)

Sounds like everyone had lots of fun. I don't enjoy car journeys much as I always have to travel locked in my carrier. My mum thinks I would be calmer if I sat on her lap, but my dad refuses to drive the car unless I am locked up. Can't think why...
