I’ll take names and addresses until December 20th.

We have an update! Two years ago, we fostered the Vittles – 15 kittens (not all related to each other), including these two cuties, French Fry (pink collar) and Hush Puppy (yellow) who were brother and sister. (They’re also blood relations to Tater Tot, who is now Periwinkle on Instagram, as well as Funnel Cake and Onion Ring – and not a tail in the bunch!) They were adopted together; French Fry is now Peppa – and if you scroll through the pictures, you’ll see what they look like today – look at those gorgeous kitties!
Wilder reports that Hush Puppy and Peppa adore their human siblings and their older kitty brother, and they are still total sweethearts. Also, when I was writing descriptions of the kittens, I said that Hush Puppy loved bottle caps. And? He still does! He plays with every bottle cap he comes across, and then he hides them in his humans’ shoes. How utterly adorable is that?
Email Forgotten Felines of Huntsville at info (at) ffhsv.org to inquire.
Did I discover* the slow-motion video function on my phone? Why, yes. Yes I did.
*I didn’t actually JUST discover it – I knew it was there – I just finally got around to giving it a try.
