So for those that have been following, know how hectic our household is at the moment. For those that haven’t been following, here is a quick update: we have 4 kids (6, 4, 3 and 1), and a week ago today we got a 2 week old (now 3 week old) kitten to care for as her mother abandoned her, and last night I picked up 3, 3 day old kittens to care for.

Well, my partner was so against the first kitten, I wasn’t game to tell him about the other 3 kittens until I got home with them. As I went out to get them, I just told him I would be back in a minute (he thought I just went to get something for dinner). Anyways, I got home and he met me out at the car like he usually does to help me carry stuff in. So, of course, he noticed the box in the front seat… I told him we have 3 more kittens. Well, he wasn’t happy, but he wasn’t angry either.

So even though he didn’t want any of the kittens, we are now keeping the 3 week old kitten (YAY! She’s fitting into our family great!), and the 3 day old kittens are going as good as can be expected thus far! Well, the big twist is that my partner has been helping wherever he can – even as far as helping feed the 3 week old kitten =) He takes on more housework when the baby kittens need feeding as well. He is so amazingly supportive which is fantastic!! He has definitely fallen in love with the 3 week old kitten as well (hence why we are now keeping her =P )

Anyways, hope everyone is having a fantastic night! I’m going to get some sleep whilst I can lol. Night all =)

  • lol yeah it is amazing how they come around to the idea of pets lol!


  • It has certainly been great!! Our older kitten is now about 6 weeks old… She is so lovely and cuddly!! Absolute perfect addition to our family =) And the baby kittens are doing quite well!! Now about 3 weeks old… The 2 boys are striving and getting big, we are having some problems with the female though, but we are getting there. But, we will be keeping one of the little ones, the little grey boy – he has chosen my partner!! Everytime he comes out for a feed, he heads straight to my partner, its so dang cute!!


  • You are such a cute girl. And very caring too!! The kittens couldn’t have arrived to a better family! Enjoy!! :-)


  • Isn’t that amazing? My hubby is all rah rah rah over some things, then when he comes around he’s worse then me! Big softies


  • he is certainly making it much easier to get through with everything going on =) Was so cute, our little 3 week old kitten woke up last night so I popped her in bed whilst I got her bottle, I get back into bed to find her snuggled up with my partner =)

    • Hope you got a pic of that one for your Christmas cards! ;)


  • Glad to hear that your partner is on board with you! Always makes a difference to be on the same page.


  • Glad it’s working out for you – always great to have family on board and supporting with our choices in life.
