Yesterday when I got up the kittens' kennel was STINKY. I took everything out, washed all the blankets, scrubbed the inside of the kennel, and cleaned out their litterbox. An hour later, it still stank, and I realized that it was the kittens themselves! They're at the lovely stage in development where eating involves a lot of walking in the food, and learning to use the litterbox involves a lot of walking through that stuff, too. Sooo....bathtime!
I got the sink running with lukewarm water, and scrubbed them up with some unscented dish soap. Jellybean jumped and hissed at me a couple of times, but then seemed resigned to her fate. Rocket was just....sad about the whole procedure. Once they were dry I warmed up their heating disc and gave them some fresh food so they could get dirty all over again!
These guys will be ready to move in to a new foster home in probably 2-3 more days. So bittersweet. I'm going to miss them, but I'll get a new batch of bottle babies.
Jellybean is not amused.
Rocket says "Why....just....why???"
Mostly dry and ready for some food!
