I have Puffin, Pixel, Mac, Klara and Kerrick yet. Tomorrow all except Klara are going to Petsmart. Klara is not going as she has been limping for a week. Sometimes kittens play and get their claw stuck and twist their leg a bit. This morning during our first loving of the day I was playing with Klara. She used both feet to play with my finger and all her paws felt warm. Then I felt a large lump on her shoulder. I got her in to the vet at noon today. The vet thought possibly her scapula was broken. I was scared as to break a bone in a kitten requires a big force. So Klara was x-rayed. It turns out it was an abcess from a puncture to her shoulder. So someone must have bitten her or punctured her skin with claw when they were playing. She is on antibiotics for a week. I was told that if I had waited until next week the infection would have been very serious. So Klara will be fine.

The goodbyes are starting. It is hard when there are a lot of little babies who require a lot of work. Then they all turn older all at the same time. On Friday Koby and Muffin went to their forever homes leaving me with 10 babies to love. Today Kodiak and Kaegan went to their forever homes so now 8 babies to love. Kia had a visitor who fell in love with her and will be adopting her this week. Peep and Paris will be able to go to their forever homes this weekend as Paris is big enough. It feels different around here already. It is the fun part--no baths, no getting up during the night or rushing home during my lunch break and healthy, happy kittens to watch play and have cuddles from.
