Look at this sad face:
Katie had her spay surgery yesterday and also had her dew claws removed. She decided to lay inside of the cat house that Mama made. It sits by Mama's chair here at the computer. Katie is doing fine, but pretty tired. She is on pain pills so they probably make her more tired.
She is almost 5 months old and now weighs 8 lbs. 9 oz. She looks pretty skinny now as her legs are growing again, hehehe. She has had 11 baby teeth fall out and has 2 more that are barely hanging on. Her new toofers are coming in all pearly white, nice and straight. Of course she has Mama waiting on her continuously, hehehe! Mama takes her up and down stairs. She doesn't want her to hurt her belly incisions.
Many of you know we have been raising young koi and baby koi again for our ponds. We finally released 10 young koi into the largest pond now on Friday. AND of course they now have names, names of our pals!
Here are pictures of the 10 koi and their names:
Koi Katie and Koi Bertie:
Koi Scuby and Koi Duffy:
Koi Fergi and Koi Jake ( for 2 Jakes, Jake of Jake & Fergi and Jake of Jake & Just Harry )
Koi Just Harry:
These koi were all between 4 and 6 inches now, so they should do fine through their first winter. Mama has them fattened up pretty good and now they'll have 3 months of eating in the pond before the cold weather sets in. The baby koi in the house will stay in the aquarium through winter. They will then go into the ponds next May or June.
We have named other koi in the pond that we do not have good pictures of yet. So we thought we would just list all of our koi names.
(these are in no particular order)
Yep, you got it, 74 named koi, hehehehe! We have a few names on a list yet to use, but tell us again, just in case we missed your name if you want to be on the list.
Guess be better go feed all of these hungry pigs and YES they do beg for food!
Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,
Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby & Hootie
