my first five days

mama toni: we just read daisy's first five days, and i decided to tell you about suzanne's first five with me.

day 1: july 3, 1991. suzanne arrived with the newspaper carrier. she was approximately 4 weeks old, and very very tiny. when she was put on the floor, she explored timidly, and then went to hide.

day 2: july 4, 1991. suzanne drank a little kmr (kitten milk replacer), purred a little, and then went to hide.

day 3: july 5, 1991. suzanne drank a little more kmr, purred a little, and then went to hide.

day 4: july 6, 1991. suzanne drank a bit more kmr, purred a little more, and then went to hide.

day 5: july 7, 1991. suzanne drank a little more kmr. she purred a little. she tried to hide, but i picked her up for some cuddling. she settled against my chest and looked into my eyes. she said 'mama?' i said 'yes, i'm your mama.' from then, she sat on my lap, slept with me, and followed me around. she meowed and i answered. she became my daughter on that day.

if you'd like to play this meme, please feel free to do so.
