Momma got this in her email today. Molly and I didn't think it was funny, but Momma said she was posting it anyway.
HOW TO WASH THE CAT
1. Thoroughly clean the toilet.
2. Add the required amount of shampoo to the toilet water and have both lids up.
3. Find the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.
4. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids. (You may need to stand on the lid so that he cannot escape.) The cat will self-agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from your toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this. CAUTION: Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his paws will be reaching out for anything they can find.
5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "Power Wash" and "Rinse", which I have found to be quite effective.
6. Have someone open the door to the outside and ensure that there are no people between the toilet and the outside door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.
8. The now-clean cat will rocket out of the toilet, and run outside where he will self-dry.
Sincerely, The Dog

Molly is adjusting fine, but Maggie is still a bit mad. She has stopped growling, but the minute I put Molly down to play she jumps on her and tries to bite. This morning I did see her licking Molly, which I hope is not a sign that she was tasting her to see if she needs more salt before eating. I still haven't left the girls alone in the house. Molly is staying in the spare bedroom for now. I did take her with me last night to a friends house where I am staying while he re-coups from open heart surgery and she slept in the bed with me. She seems like she is going to be a sweet kitten. Hopefully Maggie and her will soon be friends.
Here are some more photos of the two of them.

To top it off mommy has soaked me over and over with the water bottle to keep me calm. Getting wet is not keeping me calm. It is only making me the cleanest cat in town. I'm running away.
Well folks you read it right Maggie is not a happy kitten today. I brought home a baby sister for her last night and she doesn't like it one bit.
We have named her Molly and she is black and white. She is only five weeks old. Just the same age as Maggie when we got her. Again she came from a customer at the store where I work. At first she was given to a rescue group who took her to the SPCA. They were going to put her to sleep, and the lady who was fostering her over night thankfully took her home. When I heard about it I talked with the rescue group and the kitten was given to me. She needed a home and we had been thinking about a playmate for Maggie. I just don't understand why people want to get rid of kittens so young. She is even smaller than Maggie was at this age. Thankfully she is eating good and seems to be able to handle both wet and dry foods and is litter trained. However she is scared to death due to Maggie being so cranky. I was hoping that Maggie would be better with her since she herself is just turning four months. I was wrong. I have had to watch them every minute. Molly is fine, but Maggie is really being a brat, hissing and growling. I separated there sleeping quarters last night, but am trying to introduce them slowly today. Maggie has her moments. She is ok as long as the baby sits still but if she moves she tries to pounce. I haven't even had a chance to hold the new one much and re-assure her she is ok. Poor thing is scared. I will continue to watch them closely and keep them apart when I am not here for a few more days. Maggie hopefully will cope.She might as well accept it both cats are staying. They will just learn to like each other or stay wet from getting a mist of water from the bottle ha ha.
Here are the first pictures.
