Zelda and Zoe

Tomorrow we are getting our new kittens!!!

As some of you know, we have been in the process for a little while now of adopting a couple of black kittens. Well... they go to the vet for their final check up today and if everything is okay with them, then we will pick them up tomorrow!!!

They were scheduled last week to get spayed and "front paw" declawed, which happened on Saturday. The vet wanted them to stay for 4 or 5 days. Then Zoe began to favor one of her paws, which led the foster mom to talk to the vet and keep a watchful eye on her. After a couple of days, she talked with the vet who thought that maybe it was some phantom pain (the kind that amputees have sometimes). But then Tuesday night, Jackie was talking to her on the phone and Zoe was holding up the other paw. So, either both are hurting or she's faking. (My money's on the faking).

So, they are scheduled to visit the vet today. And if everything is cool, we will pick them up at 11 am tomorrow. We're pretty excited. In fact, I would have to say that Jackie is about to go out of her mind. (Every time I talk to her, she gets this crazed look in her eyes and says "Kitties!" It's actually kinda creepy...) But it will be good.

Yesterday we got out the container with all of Spot's stuff in it. We're going to go through it this afternoon and see what we should keep and what we should get rid of. That will more than likely be a painful process... but it won't be long before that pain is turned to joy.
