Sleep? What's that??

I guess I'm just not meant to get more than 5 hours of sleep per night. But, I'm not complaining too much... not when it's because of this at 7:00 a.m.:

Oh yes. Last night the kittens and the Yippsters discovered their love for one another. So this morning as soon as my roommate Jason left, I woke up to "Yip yip yip yip yip yip!" I had put up a baby gate to keep the babies from running out and the dogs from running in.

So I dragged my sorry ass out of bed and let the Love Fest begin... Star has pretty much adoped the runt of the litter and last night spent a good 20 minutes washing her, sniffing her, chasing her, watching over her, etc.

Cassie asked Jay if we could keep her for Star and there wasn't too much objection. But my only issue is that in 10 or so years when Jason and I part ways (fyi, did you know you're not allowed to move, Jay?), I won't be able to keep the cat. I just can't have 4 cats... it teeters me too close to the edge of Cat Lady.

I have to say though, whoever adopts these cats are going to be hitting the jackpot. Not only are they BRILLIANTLY smart, they're incredibly brave... they're socialzed with dogs, any person that comes to visit and most shocking of all, when I vacuumed the room, they all tried to climb the vacuum and go for a ride, rather than run and hide. (I also nearly had a heart attack as the runt tried to confront the business end of the vacuum hose... she's that small... oy)

Anyway, I also came to the firm realization that the calico and X Girl (white cat with a light gray X pattern on her head) need to be adopted out together. I've gotten a lot of interest in the calico as a stand alone, but quite frankly, the calico, while spunky and playful, is a lot shyer than the others. She's heavily dependent on her sister:

And on that note, I'm going to try and nap. I slept last night with the little runt wrapped around my head and one of the others in the crook of my arm (Cora came up and was HORRIFIED. She spent 75% of the night under the bed growling). Tired Tired Tired.

Hey, deciding, it was great to see you again last night! xo
