Busy Day

We were up at 8am to feed kittens, and we also had some friends coming over to finally take the playground set out of our backyard. It's a big wooden thing and takes up a lot of room, especially considering we have no kids. :P Rather, took up a lot of room, because it's gone!

Originally our friends were going to disassemble and reassemble it at their place. Unfortunately once it started coming apart, it became clear that it was older than we thought it was. There was a lot of rotten wood and rusted bolts. At the end our friends decided to just take most of it to the dump and keep the slide and a few boards.

We felt bad because it was supposed to be a fair trade. So, we took our friends out for a really nice supper tonight. They worked their butts off.

The kittens are all doing well. It was a bit frustrating tonight because we ran out of one brand of kitten milk and the kittens could tell the milk had changed. They didn't take to the bottles quite as well, and one kitten even wrinkled its little nose when it started to drink. Smells the same to me, but apparently not to them. The good news is that they eventually drank it anyway. Plus which, today a few had a poo, which made us feel good that they weren't binding up or something silly like that. And by "had a poo", you have to imagine this squirming kitten mewing and twisting up and down while I hold its tail and [livejournal.com profile] gesthen furiously rubs at its butt, trying not to get poo all over. Meanwhile the kitten is doing contortions and seems to have the goal of using its tail as a poo paintbrush.

But it's all worth it when they are a happy sleeping kitten pile again. :P
