Their momma got fixed and her front paws were declawed. Which per HDT's sister's apartment manager's rules needed to be done before she could have her. Now we shall see if she actually does take her or leaves her with their mom. Anyway.
So while she's recovering we took the last kitten so she wouldn't be tempted to run, jump and play with him or let him try to nurse still.
At first he and the brothers didn't seem to remember each other, although there wasn't any hissing going on between them. But now they're all running around playing and sleeping together.
Unfortunately I can't rotate the picture. But I still thought it cute enough to include anyway. This was shortly after the top picture was taken. One of them moved and they all just rearranged themselves into this pile.
We have of course fallen in love with him as well. So if things don't work out the way they're supposed to we probably will be keeping him.
If that happens, HDT is lobbying to change their names to the Three Muskateers' names as I had mentioned would be good if we had taken all three the night we were trying to come up with names for just the two. But we can't decide which one should get which name.
But it's all a moot point if we don't keep him anyway.
Media quote of the day: The Three Musketeers (1993)
Champagne? - Porthos
We're in the middle of a chase, Porthos. - Athos
You're right - something red. - Porthos
As morning hues of sun swept fire caress your passion face. Alone with thee in pure desire, to worship your untold grace. My soul would cry in silent prayer, for hours spent apart. Your essence warms the evening air, as I dance into your heart. - Aramis
