Intermission at a concert and I was overwhelmed with the need to log in to Mastodon for some reason? Hello! The mead and the mulberry wine were terrible. The cats are also terrible (well the two I kept, but only one pictured) but I love them.

When did life get so hectic? Why are Januarys always like this?

Oh man, mama is SO OVER these kittens at times. Lady just wants a nap, but no.

Ah, nothing like the feeling of being the one who accidentally managed to fuck up his schedule meaning the monthly D&D group now needs to completely reschedule for the next three months 😱😡😰

...I think she’s moved them into the fireplace (which has never been used in my lifetime). Which is great! But it’s right behind my sound system so I’m gonna have to discreetly move the cables as soon as they’re more settled.

I’ve opened up a couple more rooms in the house. If she wants to choose where they live she can choose it here.

I let mama out since she hadn’t used the litter and figured her behaviour so far always came back for the kids meant she wouldn’t run off. Turns out she was looking for a new place to move them all and she’s come back and picking them up and has just realised that the doors are all shut as she’s carrying one around 😿

I gotta hit up the shops tomorrow for cat entertainment goodies. Mama is getting a bit anxious about being shut in the bathroom, and I’m not comfortable letting her out until I can see she’s used the litter because the rest of the house is carpeted!

Current status: asking if I can work from home tomorrow because cats.

I GOT ‘EM

Mama seems a little confused as to the situation now but doesn’t seem stressed. Already we’ve got two adventure kitties and two scaredy cats 😹

I’ve decided not to interact with the kittens (unless I need to) until they’ve settled and mama realises that it’s safe here and everyone is fine. Unless they want to interact with me in which case YASSSSS.

Okay, she couldn’t be cajoled away from the side of the house, and even after bringing the box with the other three out, she’s still looking for something so I’ll put the box under the house with the kittens in and leave her to it. Fingers crossed I haven’t over-disturbed them and she hides them away again.

I saw mama out with the kitties, and with some perseverance managed to catch the kittens. I could have sworn I only saw three. Mama seems convinced that I’m missing one as she’s looking urgently around the box the three I caught are in. So I let her out and now she’s just sitting down the side of the house, waiting. I can’t find a fourth under my house, so it must be somewhere in the inaccessible neighbours 🙀 What to do!? Let them all out again?

When I die, I want to come back as one of those machines that blorps out beautiful four leaf clovers of single serve pats of butter.

It’s raining. I hope they’re alright! (Of course they are, it bucketed on the weekend) I just wish you could reason with animals and I could ask her to bring them inside!

I found this queer tattoo artist on instagram and look at this beefcake riding a fantasy beast, just look at it 😻

Mama wasn’t coming in for food like normal, so I took some around and she ate it ALL. Either she’s realised kittens are now mobile so is being super vigilant or she’s realised that I know where they are so is being super vigilant. It probably doesn’t help that I accidentally slapped her in the face when I overbalanced while squatting down to try and look under the fence 🤦🏼‍♂️

They're down the side of the OTHER neighbour's house it seems. Who are away. And whose fence is too high to look over, and front gate is locked. So...currently brainstorming ways to get the kittens out easily without causing a fuss...
