K. Told Me So (A Zoo Update)

I have to start with an apology to K. Erickson over at Preachers and Horse Thieves (even if he did get to spend the day blowing shit up without me, never mind that I'm in Colorado and he's in Texas).  When I first posted the pictures of the brand new kittens, he told me that the white lab rat-looking ones would probably turn out cute.  To say I was skeptical would be an understatement.

Guess what?

No Name, Paleface, Little Grey Kitten

He's right.  They're kinda cute. 

So, K., I apologize.

They're now three weeks old and all look to be long-hairs.  Ashee-butt is set on keeping Little Grey Kitten and the other two are spoken for, so the kinda cute lab rat-ish kittens have good homes in five weeks.

Dashurie took her first bath today.  We were told just to fill a sink with baby shampoo and warm water and turn 'er loose.  So we did.  It became quickly apparent that the bathroom sink was too small for her, so for her rinse cycle, she got moved to the tub where she did lap after lap.

Who would have thought a hedgehog would turn out to be such a great pet?  In fact, Dashurie's part of this week's True Story Tuesday.

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.

OMG I love your hedgie :) And the kittens are still kinda rat looking but they seem to have potential.

I am vindicated!!! Apology accepted. The only truly ugly cats IMHO are persians, and they can't help it that someone hit their ancestor with a frying pan AND an ugly stick. You should also post video of Dash making laps in the tub.

Your kittens will be cuties, but your hedge hog is adorable. I too would like to see her swim in the tub.

We'll be sure to get her swimming laps during her next bath. It's gonna require some elbow grease on my part, but we'll make it work.
