My daughter phoned me yesterday, on her way to my home to spend Mother's Day with me, and told me that she had with her two kittens. Polaris works in an animal clinic and oftentimes a client brings a stray mama cat and her litter to the clinic to get them out of harm's way and hoping that the clinic staff will find someone who will adopt them.
The kittens, both males, are three weeks old and were left orphaned after their mom died, apparently hit by a car. Since they are so tiny, they have to be fed every six hours. They couldn't be left alone over the weekend so my daughter brought them home with her.
I was thrilled to spend Mother's Day in company of my two kids, my DIL and two cute baby kittens. Polaris fed them, and then we watched them play, sleep, fight, pee and poop. My daughter and her co-worker named them Edward and Jacob after the characters in Twilight but these are temporary names, I hope.
My son and his wife fell in love instantly with the tuxedo kitty; it reminded them so much of Tux.
The kittens are back at the clinic today but will be going to my daughter's home in the evenings because they still need to be fed in the middle of the night. When they are a bit older, they will be put up for adoption by the clinic. They are very selective in their adoption screening so it will be a while before they find a permanent home.
They are both adorable but I have to confess that I had a soft spot for the grey kitty. His little face with the tiny ears melted my heart. :)
