the beasts at shady lane

This is Lucy.

This is her twin sister, Ruby.  The only way to tell them a part is that Ruby has 4 whisker freckles in a line on each side of her nose.  Lucy's whisker freckles are in a triangle instead of a line, and there are 5 of them.

You will notice that Ruby's left eye looks a bit weird.  Turn out both kitties has some bacterial infection in their eyes. It got both of Lucy's eyes.  So I took them to the vet for medication and advice.  I picked up an ointment to put in their eyes.  It has to be done 3 times a day for 14 days...
Every try to get ointment in a kitten's eyes?  You would swear you are wresting an ocotopus.  Boy usually holds them, and I try to get the stuff in the eyes without poking them with the tube.  We both end up covered in hair, and sweating from the effort.  It is really quite a production.  How can a kitten weighting 1.4 lbs be so strong, and flexible, and scary?

And this is Smoke our other creature.  He doesn't need eye goop so I love him best right now.  But his litter box does take longer to clean out...
