KITTENS!

Yes! We have kittens! By far the most exciting news in the past week. This morning, Derick went to his car around the side of our house to get something out of his car. He called me outside, “Kelly! Come here, quick! Quiet..hurry!” I came outside and saw him crouched down by the cars, looking alongside the house. And there were 4 adorable little kittens playing! There were 2 gray ones and 2 black ones, all about the size that can fit in the palm of your hand, playing in the grass. We noticed a small hole in the cement foundation of the house, which I am guessing they sneak down under and there is probably a little Cat House down there.

So, I immediately attended to Mommy Tripod on our back porch and gave her a Sunday Brunch of tuna fish salad. I mean, she is nurturing these little guys so she needs good food. Derick was right, about a month ago, he said she ‘looked pregnant’. She then disappeared for a few days, whereby I guess she went under our house and popped the little guys out.

Anyway, I am off to the store for the weekly groceries. You know, bananas, spinach, pizzas, cat food, milk, and tuna fish. I have to nourish the little ones! I think we’ll take one in in the next few weeks. Anyone looking for a kitten, let us know! We have 3 spares.

Oh, in other news, …tomorrow is the Austin Triathlon. And, Friday was the Fila Relays. This is an event whereby each person ran a leg of 2.5 miles around Zilker Park (where Austin City Limits takes place). I ran with Gate Davis, Derick and Paul Pugh. We got 2nd overall, with a girl on the team nonetheless! Was a fun night until the BLACK SKY rolled in and ended it abruptly. Unfortunately, all we got out of it was some rain, no big storm. Let’s hope that the storms hold off for tomorrow mornings race. Although, if they did roll in, it would fit the pattern from this summer (with Cap Tex cancelled and Red River Triathlon turned Duathlon!). We shall see! Until then, enjoy your Labor Day weekend. 🙂
