So, how did the kittens do on their first night?

On my face. harharharhar That lady at the shelter would be appalled that I just ignored her instructions about keeping them confined for 2+ weeks. I barely made it for 2+ hours.

The kittens slept on my bed all night. A lot of it on my face. Some of it on my neck. Some of it in that spot made when I fetal up on my side. At one point, one of them landed on the pillow and draped himself over my head which was oddly very soothing. They jumped and trampled me at various times and it was fine. I managed to get a lot of good sleep anyway. I love having them there.

They are good eaters. They are not going to be tiny for long at this rate. The spreading of litter around the bathroom remains their top skill. I think, today, I'm going to get out the big litter box with the high sides and move the current one to the litter box cupboard. I think they will find it and learn to use the cupboard on their own but I'm now wondering if I'll ever get all the litter off the bathroom floor.

I have yet to see them hop onto the kitchen counter but I put a small bowl of food up there for them anyway. I have enough counter space and it's so much nicer for me than serving/picking up/cleaning up on the floor. I hope they pick up the habit. Edit: Kitchen counter/food discovered.

I could swim today. The pool opens at 8 but nah. I think I'll stay here with the kitties. I am going to the Mariner game at 11 - buffet lunch before - so they will be on their own all afternoon. This evening will be interesting.

I got out the crocheting last night and there was a little interest but not much. I also didn't get much done since kitten cuddling really requires two hands.

I did get most of the claws off the front paws clipped. No one was thrilled by this. I like the result but the kittens thought the whole idea stunk to high heaven. I learned long ago that making the extra effort from the time they are tiny, makes claw clipping sooooo easy for the rest of their lives. I tell them this but I'm not convinced they are convinced. But we're close to good for now. Mars has one more I need to get - he pointed this out to me last night landing on my boobs.

Ok, I just did the litter box swap. The one they have in there now is large and has tall sides. Of course they hopped in immediately and then draped themselves over the tall sides. Seriously, boys and bathrooms!

I vacuumed a bunch of the litter off the tile while they watched. I left the vacuum standing in the bedroom and now they are attacking it. I need to get the hand held to the corners where there are still drifts of litter piled up.

Now they are back into explore mode... no corner left examined oh and we found one of the scratching posts and figured out what to do.
