I Feel Pritty

You are, Honey. Very pritty.


As many of you know, Kitten Mom over at Kittenpalooza has been dealing with a heartbreaking pan-leuk situation.

The combined two litters of kittens that totalled 14 are down to only 6.

Please pay her a visit, if only to offer words of encouragement. I don't think many of us can imagine what she's been through.

Of course, donations to her shelter or any other in their honor would be awesome .

April 28, 2006

The Humane Society of Tacoma and Pierce County, roughly 6:00 p.m., cattery cubby #17 . .

This lovely girl . .

gave birth to three more . .

The precious little one in the middle was meant to be an angel. She left us very early on to watch over her sisters, Minnie . .

and Rosemary.

I couldn't love these girls more if my life depended on it.

Happy birthday my grown up 4 year old girls!

I had intended a more lengthy post to acknowledge the occasion, but life intervened. However, I will tell you that gorgeous mama kitty found her happily-ever-after home after taking good care of her girls.

I don't have many photos of Rosie and Min as teenies, but will round up a few more and fill you in on a bit more background very soon.

Their birth proved to be the beginning of a wonderful and rewarding phase in my life. Who knew??

I'm very grateful.

The World Just Got Bigger - and Funner !

I opened the doors to the living and dining rooms and a glorious time was had by all.

It was the first time for the kittens. And now there'll be no keeping 'em outta there.

Willis is particularly adorable.

Good Morning, Punkin' Eater

Umm, excuse me for a second Peter. I think I'll go pour myself a fresh cup.

Marshall "Wallenda" Sterling

As you've no doubt noticed, the favorite kitty-climby-thing sits in a south window where young and old alike can bask all day in the sun. And they do.

It's inevitable that there's one in the crowd who can't resist the lure of the ledge. Today, it's Marshall.

This is the point where they start to wonder how the heck to get back.

Very gingerly tip-toeing backwards . .

And this is the point where I save them from themselves with a swoop and a hug.

(The famous Flying Wallendas can be found here.)

Hello, Bruthahs!

Yes, Willis. You have some spectacular toe-age. *Insert obligatory oohs and ahhs* Now I'd like very much if you'd join the other boys for a group shot.

It's the best I could get. Boys will after all be boys.
