I've got 5 babies and one 3 month old kitten, who seems a little irritated that there are all these other cats in HIS house.
So kittens, as a lot of people know, get roundworms from their mama's milk. These worms hatch and attach themselves to the kitten's (or cat's)intestine...ya gross I know. What's even MORE horrible is that when we give them de-wormer...the wormies have to go somewhere...and that's out. And guess who gets to clean it up??? You betcha, the nanny. Which just so happens to be my job. It's seriously disgusting. Up until today, they have been dead when they have come out...which is common. However, I have seen many a live worm today and it's all I can do to not vomit. I have a very strong stomach but this is disgusting. I've also had to pull them out of their butts...so I'm very anxious for the day when all of the worms are gone!!!
Okay now that you're grossed out, I'll let you look at the cuties. Some are blurry because I got too close with the close-up setting on my camera. I'm a terrible pet photographer...I captioned on Photobucket but it didn't translate to here. In the shot with 4 of them, counter-clockwise from the left are Lander (Richard Lemon, explored Africa), Dora (the explorer...duh), Pike (Americas explorer), and Cortez (Spanish explorer) and then the black and brown one with Gin (who is NOT photogenic at all!) is Ponce (another Spanish explorer, first to go to Florida)...uh ya, that's them.
