Tiny newcomer(s)

Tuesday morning just before Courtney arrived, I happened to find a kitten I hadn't seen before. I didn't want it to get away before she saw it, so I put it in a box in the garage until she got here. I knew it had to be one of Scoot's babies, because not only did it look just like her, it also had long hair. I had marked on the calendar when they were born, and it was exactly 5 weeks old... but the TINIEST 5-week-old kitten I've ever seen!

Courtney was delighted, of course, and it didn't take her long to "tame" the kitten and have lots of fun with it. Enjoy the videos!

Yep, it ran around and acted like a 5-week-old... but oh, such a wee thing! That was its mama, Scoot, that arrived at the end of the video.

During the playtime with that little one, a couple of Patches' kittens also arrived. They were a bit wary, but I was able to get ahold of them and put some antibiotic in their eyes. It's hard to treat them very well, though, when they keep disappearing, and at last sighting, the eyes were still kind of sore.

Here are some still shots. This little tiny guy is now named "Tiny". Of course.

Isn't he just the cutest LITTLE thing?

Here are the sore-eyed ones.

As we were heading back to the machine shed, another tiny kitten showed up, following Scoot, rather unsure if she wanted to keep coming or not.

Later in the day, when Courtney and I went out to check on the babies, lo and behold, there was one more! It was a perfect twin to Tiny!  She and the black one were pretty hissy and spitty. I held them, but Courtney did not.

Of course, they all disappeared Tuesday night. It's nice, though, how kittens seem to show up on Tuesdays so Courtney gets to see them before they're gone again! I wonder what next Tuesday will bring, although I think we've seen all the babies now. I THINK.

On another note, I am happy to report that I finished my latest sewing project!! The booboo is repaired and all is well. But I can't show it to you until it's received by its recipient, Jess. She needs to model it for you, and I hope it fits! Yes, it's a garment... there's your clue. Now I need to hurry up and get busy on my next project!

Those videos of Tiny following Courtney around are beyond cute! That little thing didn't seem scared of people at all!
