I have been sick as a dog for a week and a half, rousing myself from bed only to nap on the couch for a change of pace. It's been miserable and boring, a mix of hulu's greatest hits and a desperate scan for anything viable to watch on daytime network television (as [livejournal.com profile] punkybrister69 so often notes, the Southern gothic is alive and well on the Springer-Povich-Lake circuit).

My friend Scornwell tipped me off to project Kitten Infinity. She's been fostering kittens for a maine coon rescue group for six months now to great success. Check it out: you get a piping fresh hot kitten, you enjoy the kitten antics and the kitten sweetness, and then they get adopted before they're big and stupid (I love my big stupids but I don't need any more, thank you very much). Hodge and I got our first foster kitten right before I got terribly ill. Then it turned out kitty had an upper respiratory infection so we have been pathetic snot bombs together all week. Ask me how much I love cramming a syringe of antibiotics down a squirmy kitten throat when I myself feel like I'm about to fall over?

But he's a sweetie. Hodge took this before the kitten erupted into a mucous explosion:

Little kitten meows are adorable. What does kitten have to complain about? His cold!

Oh my goodness, what a cutie! How do your two big stupids react to having the little kitty around?

Hope you feel better soon--sounds pretty miserable.

The big stupids so far haven't encountered him much...he's in isolation in my office. We'll see how things play out once he's not contagious anymore...

I love how he's trying to do diggydigs with his front pips like he knows he's supposed to but not when or why.

Awwwww!! I love Maine coons! What a sweet idea! I don't think I could do it - I'd get too attached to the cuteness. But it's a seriously wonderful thing you're doing!

I'm pretty fond of the little guy, but I am a little outnumbered by critters already...so I think I'll just be happy to help him find a home.
