Tracey Kitty Update

Well, it's been 2 days now with Tracey the pregnant kitty. So far she is doing really well in her new environment. Friday morning when I went in to check on her, she had managed to push the pet carrier from one side of the room to the other. Danielle and I decided she was nesting! LOL.

I had placed a litter box in the room filled with shredded paper (based on a recommendation as a safety precaution for the kittens), however, two mornings in a row she chose the towel (and a box with a towel) instead of the litter box. I was not suprised as she is an outside cat. I even tried putting some dirt and leaves in the litter box. I tried placing her in the litter box but she jumped out immediately, and she wanted nothing to do with.

I decided this morning that I would try actual litter. While it could present a safety hazard for the kittens (once they are born) I figured it would be better than nothing. So, I placed her in the litter box with the litter and she didn't jump right out like she did with the shredded paper. So off I went for the day (I had a bowling birthday party for my niece, Brooke). When I arrived back home this evening (about 4 hours later) I went in to check on Tracey and what did I find??? SHE USED THE LITTER BOX!!! It's a happy day for the Spezzano Foster Kitty Care! :)

As I stated in my previous post, Jim has requested to not be a part of this process, however, my sweet husband looked in on Tracey this morning while I was sleeping because she was crying so loud (he thought she had gone into labor) but instead she was crying for food and attention (which he gave her a little attention and lots of food). Now I have two bowls of food out for her, and two bowls of water... that way Jim won't have to bother with that either!

I do have some more photos, but I will post those later as I am too lazy to go get the camera usb cord right now! LOL :)
