Half of Phoenix’s lower lip is black, which makes her look like she’s sneering, and I love her.

Aurora in the tree.

Hubble says “Mine.”

A Hubble and his mama.

Telstar gets his climb on.

I put the little blue tree in the kitten room, and it was an instant hit. Stardust approves.

Little poser on his ess. (I know 75% of you initially misread that word and it cracks me up.)

Stardust has black lipstick across her lower lip because she is emo.

I have not investigated the state of Aurora’s lower lip, but it doesn’t look black from here. I’ll report at a later date.

Phoenix is laying in the tiny basket, chewing on her toenails, because it’s important to have a hobby.

“Hi, innernets! Hi hi!” (Telstar)

Hubble shows off his faaaaabulous whiskers.

Aurora, looking grumpy.


Videos! In the first, Hubble is an adorable little goofball.

And in the second, it’s bath time for Hubble and Aurora.

Very occasionally, Frankie decides I am worthy of his attention and naps with me.

Frankie update: he was weaned off the steroids for only a couple of days, and started sometimes yelping in pain when he ate. A trip to the vet showed that the inflammation in the back of his mouth was revving up again. We put him back on steroids to get it under control – we can keep him on steroids indefinitely, but eventually they’ll stop working, and there are health issues with long-term steroid use, or so we’ve heard. We’re about to start him on Atopica, in hopes that it will help. We had Tommy on Atopica briefly several years ago for his plasma cell pododermatitis (pillow foot). It didn’t work for Tommy because the medicine tasted so awful that it was nearly impossible to get into him. I see that there are pills now, so hopefully we’ll be able to use those for Frankie. If the Atopica doesn’t work for Frankie, then we’ll go back to steroids and keep him on them as long as we can. Fingers crossed that the Atopica works!
