You can see our Mommy, (Ma) Bailey, on our page.
Foster Mommy took us home last week. Mommy was VERY sick when we were born and they even tried to take us away from her. She had five kittens, but our three siblings went to a foster to be bottle fed/raised. They had taken us, too, but Mommy was screaming/crying...
So the humane society people decided to let her keep us with her...even though they didn't know if we would survive.
Mommy had a terrible URI. Well, we did survive and Mommy got well. We were stuck in a cage, though, and it was getting tight.
So, last week, Foster Mom took us home where we have a great big room to play in. Mommy is very happy here and so are we.
Foster Mom got a little nervous a couple of days ago, though. Our Mommy is still very young and wants to play. She forgets she is just getting better! Foster Mom noticed, after playing for awhile, that she stuck her tongue out a little (through a closed mouth.) She kept it out for maybe 30 seconds, and then put it in.
Today, Foster Mom took her forever cat, Phoebe, to the vet. She asked him about this sticking out the tongue thing. He said that he has actually seen that in a few cats...and, though it looks funny, it does not mean something is wrong. He said as long as she was not sneezing (she's not,) open mouthed breathing (she's not,) or showing other respiratory distress signs (she's not,) then it was nothing to worry about.
Do any other kitties stick here stick out their tongues? When do they usually do it?
