One Spot

With a murmur.

Two spot minus a pair.

Mama Spot a bit grumpy with the babies.

And that ladies and gentlemen are all the spots there will ever be.

They were so happy to be home. They ate. They drank. They pooped. They licked. They looked at birds for a bit before heading into the freshly washed linens of the blanket insulated cat carrier house because it is so frickin cold. The high today might have made it up to 18. It stays quite warm inside their house considering. I put my hand in there to test it. Three warm fur balls must generate a good amount of heat.

Oh thank goodness they are home and safe. You had me scared with that title, as though something bad had happened! I think you like to scare us. :-) I do know pooping is a good sign, well done.

I am so glad the Spots all survived their ordeal. I was sure they would be happy to get home.

It's good that there will be no more Spots...there are more then enough in the world to go around~ Lucky cats to have a pet like you to wait on them!

Hi Christopher!
The Spot family is so cute. Glad to hear they are all home safe, sound and happy! Stay warm these next few days.

Whew, I wasn't sure what was going on, but I'm glad your kitties are safe and warm. I just let one of ours outside for his evening constitutional, and he did what needed doing and came back paddling on the patio window, demanding to come in right now! It's incredibly cold here too; here's hoping it all gets warmer for all of us soon!

Glad the kitties are doing so well. Hope they & you stay warm. The Spot in the first pic. looks like my step-dau Scooter who has renal failure. Poor Scooter, I hope it's not very painful for him. He is such a loving, good Kittie.

I'm glad they're all doing well. Aren't you in an area where it's going to be really cold? For about 48 hours after surgery cats can have difficulty regulating their body temps, so extreme temperatures can be hard on them. Also, some pet stores sell these things called Snuggle microwave them and they'll stay warm up to 8 hours. Kitties seem to love 'em!

Hi all, yes they are safe and sound and have now discovered the difference between 70 and MINUS four degrees. The spotlets want to come inside to play now.

Frances a little suspense is a fine literary tradition.

Gail ain't that the truth.

Jodi, this is an interesting process watching possibly feral cats learn that inside can be fun.

Mary they seem to be doing fine. I'm watching closely. I think I'll stick a thermometer in their insulated house.

As cute as they all are, it's good there will be no more Spots. Exponential math is scary!
