In the meantime, I just got back from taking Darwin and Huxley to the vet! Luckily, especially since Kyle has our car in Texas, there is a specialty Cat Clinic just a 15 minute walk away from my apartment. The walk was still a bit annoying, as it was raining and the cats were not happy and my purse kept sliding down my shoulder and maneuvering the umbrella and it was all very awkward. But the clinic is a nice place. Everyone went crazy for the kittens, both in the clinic and those during the walk that noticed them in their carrier. The only other "patients" there were 14 and 16 year old cats, so D and H got a lot of attention. Both kittens are healthy, and I was told it's normal for the female to be smaller than the male. They both have ear mites, not unusual, and the vet cleaned out their ears (it just looked like dirt) and sent us home with some Revolution to take care of it. They had their first shots, the next due in three to four weeks. I was also given some syringes full of goop to give them tomorrow and again in ten days to take care of any possible worm issues (though none were apparent).
