April's last day

Well, just before sweet, beloved April went to her new mommy's, we were able to catch April's grandmother's new kitten. One of the two. Of course we named her May. But before I get to that here are some photos I took of April and I before she left! 

And here is April's grandmother eating with her two kittens near the bike racks outside our house. 

This is a photo taken just before I was able to snatch up "May". More on them to come!

One more week with April!

What a cute face!

She found her toes!

April, when she takes a break from playing, loves to sleep on my chest! 

April will be moving in with her new mommy next week! It's going to make the house feel very empty again, but allow us to open up our house to other rescues. April's grandmother (Little mommy's mommy) had a litter about the same time and has two tabby's we just found last week that are about the same size as April and tabby striped the same way, but a bit more brown than gray.

They have come to our doorstep almost with their mom and haven't shown too much fear. The mom will actually close her eyes and nap as I sit in front of her kittens while they eat.

I will post next week, maybe with new kittens but definitely with the farewell to April!

Little Mommy is home safe and April is amazing!

So Little mommy was only gone a few days, but I was so relieved when I saw her back again and every day since, eating breakfast with her brothers. I have a feeling a Tom got to her and there is a chance in 60 some odd days we might be meeting another little one of hers.

April is just adorable. She is finally eating wet food and hasn't had a bottle in a few days. She doesn't seem to miss it at all! Also, I feel like she has to eat less frequently now that she is eating solid foods.

April is so funny when she is tired she just walks herself, her tiny, tiny self, over to her bed and takes a nap. Then when she is done she stumbles out on her own, eyes squinted from sleep and walks quietly into the living room.

April is still to small to get up or down from the bed or couch but loves being picked up and played with. She likes to spend hours a day playing now, with us, alone, or with Gorri or Biya. Gorri is a good big brother. Biya could care less about the little girl right now though I see her give April a lick from time to time.
