I'm not sure why, but Kinsey kitten kicked me out of her room when I tried to trim her plant. I was just helping her keep her room neat. With everyone gone so much, someone around here has to take up the slack, and it sure isn't going to be the vermin who have limited access. That leaves the poodies and Shadow isn't much for grooming anything but herself. I know because I have asked her to lend a lick with my rather large coat but she refuses. I did help Mom wash the dishes yesterday. She thanked me for all my help and said my conversation keeps her company.
I still have not gotten a good look at the new girl vermin. The baby is very small, like I said only about a paw and a half, but the other one is bigger. They don't come out much yet. They smell different too.
