Kitten Update

We got a call from the shelter yesterday that Yoink was going in for the "big snip" surgery that day as opposed to Wed. That would be fine with us! Kitty picked him up not too long after he had had the procedure. I got home just in time for him to get his first view of FurCentral. He was groggy, hungry, and bitchy. Completely understandable. We had forgotten that he was a month older than his step-siblings so he was quite a bit bigger. That actually worked out very well. Boot kept trying to pick a fight but was afraid of this cat that was almost twice as big as he. He resorted to simply following his brother all around the house. Fling was mellow about the whole situation. There was a bit of hissing, but nothing that seemed confrontational.

Yoink was as affectionate as he was when we first met him (and was the reason we adopted him). If I sat on the floor with him he would climb into my lap and then rub his face against mine. I got many kitty kisses on my nose. We decided to just let him explore the house on his own while we went out to dinner. When we got back things were still relatively calm. Everyone was watching the others with a weary eye. There was the occasional hiss or growl, perhaps a swipe, but there was no overt fighting. We then introduced Mesa to the newcomer. He was pretty indifferent although he did give me a look as if to say, "Another one?!? Jeez!"

Hopefully the shape of things to come will be dictated by what happened at around 3am. I woke up to find Yoink sleeping between mine and Kitty's heads, Fling flopped between our bodies, and Boot asleep between my legs. Less than 12 hours and everyone was asleep in the same bed! Hopefully things will continue to settle down. Pics of Yoink to come!
