Summary: While Dean is laid up for a month after breaking his leg on a hunt, Cas decides that it's a perfect time to adopt a litter of kittens. But even though he's gotten better since Purgatory, Cas still isn't quite the same as he was before fixing Sam's head, and being trapped in a cabin with him for weeks on end is making that all the more obvious to Dean. When Sam takes off on a hunt, Dean has to figure out on his own how to navigate his new relationship with Cas while also helping to raise a bunch of fuzzballs that aren't even cute. Not even a little bit. (Well, maybe a little bit.)

Note: This was my first deancasbigbang, and it was a blast! I wouldn't take back a single day spent hammering my way toward the minimum word count or a single hair yanked out during the editing process. Major props to mixeduppainter for her excellent suggestions, and all the thanks in the world to my artist krioboly. She picked up my fic when it went to the pinch hitter list at the last minute, and she turned out stunning art in record time to make sure I kept my posting date. I love you both.

ETA: Now translated into Mandarin here and here by the wonderful ekabell.
