The awful time of year

Springtime is kitten time. Today at the vet they have 3 bundles of mega cuteness waiting to be adopted.

Apparently my aura that says "Sucker" in huge letters that only animals can see works on the young ones too. One in particular had to come get as close as possible to look at me.

They were so adorable. Keith always says they grow up into big varmints, but I just love kitties in all sizes. Young and old.

The reason this time of year is so awful is because there are kittens at the vets waiting to be adopted, at Petsmart waiting to be adopted, and you get my drift. I go places where they have kittens looking cute and begging for me to come cuddle them, get bitten by them and rub their tiny tummies until they doze off.

Well, I have not done any sewing today. I took Sassy back to the vet for a follow up to whole losing hair thing. Scooter went with us for some rehydration. They were running late, which is pretty usual. I was gone from home a little over 2 hours, maybe 2 1/2. Unfortunately, while I was gone, the dishes didn't get washed, nor did the laundry. Everything is getting caught up right now, and hopefully I'll get some sewing done tomorrow. At least I got a wee bit of knitting done on Keith's sock. I'm looking forward to working on my tiny little socks again. (OK, my feet aren't that dainty, but my socks seem to go a lot more quickly.)

ETA: In my kitten madness, I forgot to say that Sassy is doing much better. Her fur has been growing back nicely, and she seems less itchy. I still may have to add even more essential fatty acids to her diet, but I'm to see how she does over the next month or so.

As for the kittens, I was so taken since two of them are silvery grey and look like Grey (aka Princess Plumeria) did when she was teeny tiny. I'll have to see if I have any pictures from when she was young. I didn't take very many since I was supposed to find a home for her and not keep her or Monster. See how well that worked?
