Needed: More Hours in a Day!

A very full week has come to an end.  "Pink nose kitten" also known as Libby (below on the right) was hospitalized overnight this past week for an abscess, dehydration, and an intestinal infection.
Under the watchful eyes of Charlie, she's doing much, much better, and we're working through a few health issues with the "All Girls Club" who should all be okay.
The tiger kitten, (below) who is the new comer in the crowd is adjusting to her new life and being around people. She's no longer swatting at me, and only hissing at me once or twice a day so that's progress. She's estimated to maybe be a month older than the others, and it's amazing how the others adapted and "tamed" so much more quickly than she has.
We've not made any progress with "Feral Mom" even though I tried. One of my counter-parts in this rescue of the "West End Kittens" has found a good barn home for her, and she'll be leaving us this morning.

....And speaking of leaving, I am leaving too.  After I take Mom-Cat to her new home, I'm off on a small road trip for my nephews wedding. I'm really looking forward to this trip for several reasons. One is that my Nephew doesn't live far from the beach, and I'm trying to make time during my visit to at least see the ocean.  The other is that I just need a small break to recharge my inner batteries that are really in need of recharging.  
~Todd's batteries never need recharging~
I'm sorry that I've not been able to visit your blogs lately.  But while I have no regrets in taking in the kittens, and they are fun to have around, they are taking a lot of time added to the care the dogs need too.  At the end of the day, I have hoped to at least read a few blogs, but I have just collapsed into bed, and hope that the next day will bring a few extra hours, but so far, it hasn't.  I am missing having the time to take a peek into your lives that I always enjoy. But I have hopes of being able to catch up with you very soon!

    My sister in Annandale has expressed interest in a senior Golden. She's a cat person, but has been walking a puppy that she's fallen in love with. Don't know if it'll come to anything, but what's the name of the rescue?
