7:30 – I wake up. Feeling somewhat energetic, and typically adorable.
7:45 – I climb out of bed.
8:00 – Run an errand “downtown.”
8:10 – Arrive back home and see a mama cat and three little kittens just down in the field behind my house.
8:11 – I name the kittens as the stumble and bumble around.
And then a cute little grey guy appears from the bushes.
I call him Earl.
8:12 – I open the car door and they all run away like bunnies, and go under the old barn next door.
8:30 – I put out leftover chicken and steak down near the barn and run home. Not like a bunny.
8:31 – I watch in anger as jerkface seagulls and crows steal the food.
8:32 – I stew.
8:33 – I pee.
8:34 – I go back to stewing.
9:00 – Jump in the car, turn up “Things That Make You Go Hmm”, and sing along as I make my way to the grocery store.
9:07 – Standing in pet food aisle. Lonely. Confused. Itchy elbow.
9:08 – Say “yay!” outloud when I see that they have something just for kittens.
9:09 – Waiting to pay for Purina Kitten Chow, I read about Michelle Obama’s secret lipo.
9:14 – “Ladies, have you ever had your man go away for work and come back with a tan?”
9:16 – Tiptoeing through the wet grass with a bowl of Kitten Chow. I dump it on the ground under a tree.
9:17 – Looking out through my backdoor, waiting for kitties to appear.
9:18 – Still waiting.
9:20 – Sending email from my phone.
9:25 – Decide to write blog post to chronicle my time together with the kittens.
To be continued…
UPDATE: Earl and DeVoe are eating the food! I repeat, they are eating the food!
UPDATE: Two more grey kitties (with white paws! so cute!) have appeared. I’ve named them Statler and Waldorf.
