"I'm becoming a member of the
Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde today!!"
"Okay mom, I've sent an email to Sparkles'
foster mom telling her where you'll meet her!"
"I'll wait here until you get back and
put in pictures of our new sister!!"
"Mister Kitten broke Star's Christmas toy so this is
the only one we have left but we'll share it with her!!"
"Could you please hurry up mom?!
We want to see the newest member of the Horde!!"
Okay, new collar - check!
New tag... need to find engraver & steel tags.
Towel everyone has laid on - check! Leash - check!
Metal pan for kitty litter - check!
Depending on how everyone reacts she'll either sleep in our room or Corwyn's room since Jennifer didn't get hers clean - check!
Now, we need to make Valerian tea. I realized that I neglected to mention Valerian. Some cats don't care for catnip but I have yet to meet a cat who doesn't like Valerian. In fact, there is some speculation that Valerian is what was used by the Pied Piper of Hamlin since rats react the same way. So we will be using Valerian tea to 'scent' all the cats. Valerian also acts more like a tranquilizer rather than a 'cat crazies' like catnip does in so many cats so it is much more affective in situations like these. HOWEVER, please do not use it internally without consulting your VET!! We'll make another post today after Sparkles is home and we have pictures, pictures, pictures!!! Once she has settled in her name may well change.
