I’ve decided I cannot live another second without a ceiling fan in the nursery! I’ve been stalking around this issue for a couple of months now. If to do it. When do do it. How to do it. I am, of course thinking (hoping?) that we will have some kittens from Sequoia at some point soon. She did actually have her first heat a month or so ago and allowed Simba Kahn to mate her in her uniquely ungracious manner. There’s a slim possibility of kittens in September. In other words, she hasn’t gone back into heat, but she’s not looking PG either. In any case, all of this entered into my thinking that I have got to have better ventilation in that room and if it’s going to be topsy turvy in there it has to be now, rather than later, as much as I hate that sort of thing. Oh, yes, and the electrician was SO cute that I agreed to have him put in some recessed lighting since he was going to be punching holes everywhere anyway.
Here’s the whole point of this post … KITTYCAM IS GOING TO BE DOWN!!! Can you believe it? Other than a few glitches here and there — it’s first down time since January of 2008 — starting tonight when I sign off at bed time. I don’t know what shape the room will be in, but it probably won’t be worth firing up the computer in the evenings. I’m estimating 4 – 5 days. I’ve been attempting to figure out how to run Camstreams off of the laptop, but so far have failed. There is also Stickam, but I may be too busy cat wrangling to bother with much of that. We’ll see how shaky I get with NO KITTYCAM…. of course the chatroom will be open and if the electricity is on, I can log on there to share news. I’ll try to post kitten weigts here on the blog, so those of you who are following their progress can keep up.
I think I’ll be keeping the kittens upstairs in the bedroom. I don’t want to take any chances with workers in the house. The big cats can be in the bedroom and locked outside in the enclosure.
