There were two other kittens in the same litter with Boris and Gregor, and the other two were also boys. But they looked way different. They looked more like Siamese cats. Mom met them at the shelter, too, and they were scared and hissy, just like Boris and Gregor. Probably this is because the kittens aren't socialized and they are afraid of new places and new people, which is only natural, but I have to say I don't like being hissed at and growled at all the time.
So far, Mom has just kept the Blue Boys in the crate in the living room, except for when she took them in the back room to play for a while yesterday morning. Last night when we were watching TV, Boris kept meowing, so I think he wanted to come out of the crate, but Mom didn't want to let him out. She is afraid that if she lets the kittens out right now, especially Gregor, she will never find them again because they will hide under the sofa or someplace.
Oh, and Nicky got his blood test results back, too, and all his liver values were normal instead of being really high. So Dr. Griswold sent the results to Dr. Grigsby, the internist, and we are waiting to see what she wants to do next. Because we still think Nicky has something wrong in his intestines, which means he will probably have to have an endoscopy. And that won't be cheap, so I hope Mom still has money left over afterwards to buy dog food!
