… and they’re NEGATIVE! No ringworm!!
So the first thing I did when I got home was release them all. HUGE success. The kittens started running around almost immediately. Jasmine kept calling them back but finally she caved and came out. She walked right up to Murphy, who was sitting on my shoes. There was a brief nose touch, then he hissed, then she hissed back and walked away. Pretty good. She continued to explore and went in and out of the foster room.
Murphy slunk away and jumped up in the window.
The kittens were little maniacs! Running and leaping and thumpity-thumpity-ing across the floor. SO much fun to watch — and listen to. Jasmine eventually jumped up on the couch to watch.
I had my class so I had to herd them up and back into the room. When I got back they were all completely conked out and hadn’t eaten their dinner! Too much excitement — the good kind. But soon after I returned, I could hear them thumping around in there so I let them out again. More hijinks ensued. Then I heard a bit of a disturbance in the foster room. Jonesy had snuck in and was eating their dinner! Jasmine was having NONE of that. She had politely greeted both boys on “their” turf but DO NOT come into her lair! And do not add insult to injury by eating their dinner! Jonesy — literally — tucked his tail between his legs and retreated. Don’t mess with mama.
