Hello, baby

Last month I took in a stray cat. She’s no longer as stray, she’s been named Harlow and I’m currently looking to find a rescue for her. Shortly after she started hanging around, I noticed she was pregnant. I have trouble turning away an animal regardless, but I knew there was no way I could turn her away in her condition – not that I would have. So, about 2 weeks later, bing bang boom. Four beautiful kittens. Two black & white, one almost completely black and one grey tabby. Talk about instantly falling in love. I was with Harlow through the entire labor process. This was only the second time I’ve experienced such a thing.

So, check out these cutie pies.

Once they began opening their eyes, they became little wanna-be dragons, hissing at every little thing. Especially me, and especially the kids. Not so much Harper (the dog). Their eyes have been open for about a week now, and their hissing has decreased. The two black and white ones love to cuddle with me. The black one does from time to time. The grey tabby, not so much. Just let that one sleep because that’s its favorite thing to do!

We’ll be getting Harlow spayed soon, and with any luck find her and all 4 kittens a wonderful rescue or loving home to call their own. If I could keep them all myself, I would. Unfortunately as a renter, I’m only allowed 2 full time pets inside (I have Harper, my dog, and Hope, my cat already). It’s too dangerous for them to be outside, and besides, I think they’d the comfort and coziness of being indoors.
