initially we were gonna call em the Great Scotts, but i prefer Burns. these little tykes are claimed to be a mix of scottish fold. the folks that handed them over, also had another girl in the litter but someone lay claim to her. just hope she got a really good home. the one missing, allegedly has the folded ears. regardless, the three that came in are pretty cute! i posted a teaser last night, and while i meant to take more pics, i’ve been a bit under the weather today. when they first got here, they was stinky of poop and pee so they got a bath.
despite initial hissing, i remained unscathed thru the entire process of bathing the three. it is apparent that they haven’t been handled alot, and are a touch feral. Jett exhibits this the most. so far, Alban has warmed up the quickes to me, and Brigid is still a bit cool, but getting warmer. Brigid has managed to rush the door when it opens twice now and has sent me on a wild goose chase. not easy to do when u have at least 3 curious dogs and one dog in the way of you trying to pursue. none of the critters would ever hurt her tho, and both times i eventually managed to nab her during a course of hissing.
Alban and Brigid have obiously been eating. i’m not as certain about Jett. he seems to have spent most of the day hiding in a small drawer in the vanity cubbard of the bathroom. tonight i went in and got him, swaddled him in a warm blanket, and brought him out for awhile. (that’s one of the suggestions made when reading up on socializing feral kitties). at least this time the poor little man wasn’t shaking, and even tho he didn’t purr, he did start to fall asleep during my scratching of his neck, whiskers and head.
he still looks a bit stressed, but not nearly as wired as he was last night. last night…if looks could kill! lol still cracks me up looking at that picture. well we shall continue to work on socializing this little man, and hopefully in a few more days i’ll have him purring. that’s my goal! and thank goodness, they smell ALOT better!!
