Last night, this happened:
That’s all the BeeBees adopted, which makes room for the Coaches, who should be headed to Petsmart next week. Hopefully they’ll all get adopted quickly!
I recall a supposedly pregnant cat Robyn got who turned out to be fooling people. Wonder if the current “expectant” cat is doing the same (hopefully she isn’t *fingers crossed*).
Are you ~sure~ she’s pregnant? If she is, she’s hiding it well. I have a couple of boys here who have bigger bellies! *tee hee*
Look, all I know is what I’m told – the people at the vet’s office are pretty sure she’s pregnant. She does seem pregnant to me*, but I think we’ve got a while to wait. In the meantime, we’ll spoil her rotten, and if she ends up not being pregnant, we’ll be happy (so she doesn’t have to go through that) and sad (but-but-but I was promised BAYBEEEEES!). Somehow, I think there’ll be babies in our foster room at some point.
*There’s a prominent nipple situation going on in her nippular area. I prefer not to go into details.
Could you post a list of the naming themes you’ve been collecting, the ones you haven’t used?
I’ll put a list together and post it next week.
Do you use a specific cat-selfie app or is it just the stock camera app on the iPad set to selfie mode?
It’s the Cat Selfie app by Acceleroto. It has a laser light that runs around the screen, and when the cats smack at it, it takes a picture.
So, I’ve been binge watching Sons of Anarchy of late (because Canada. Cold.) and I was wondering if the Sons litter you fostered were named after them?
Yes – Clay, Jax, Tig and Opie were named after characters from the Sons of Anarchy series.
I always said that Tara from Sons of Anarchy reminded us of Stinkerbelle.
I have an unrelated question. When you have a single adult foster, how much time do you spend with them each day? I have a sweet orange girl right now and I spend lots of time with her, but she still meows when I’m not in there and it breaks my heart.
I would guess maybe three hours? An hour or so in the morning, again around noon, and then in the evening. Added to that, I go in and out of the room often, sometimes just to check on her, sometimes to put something away. Fred – whose office is upstairs at the other end of the hallway from the foster room – goes in there when he has a break from work, and sits with her several times over the course of the day. If she weren’t pregnant, I’d let her have the run of the upstairs, but I don’t want her having kittens under Fred’s bed!
I love the previous year entries that say “We’re definitely not adopting (enter permanent resident’s name here)”. They always crack me up. 🙂
That’s exactly why I try not to say it anymore – I tend to make a liar out of myself!
Awww, I got the Beebees banner today. I hadn’t seen that one yet, and I love that you included one of the kittens cozied up to their sock. I wish I’d remembered that sock thing while I was visiting my mom, because her kitty always acts like she’s cold (she does the catloaf thing on top of the floor heat vents.) (The cat, not Mom. Heh.)
I have really got to get my butt in gear and get more banners done – there are so many fosters who aren’t represented in them! The rice/bean sock thing was new to me, but I am a definite convert – the BeeBees adored their socks!
On a separate note… have you seen this? The little tabby’s meow kills me DEAD! Enjoy.
That very well might be the VERY SWEETEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.
So I’m not sure if “rare black-nosed tabby” was supposed to be real, but if so, I have one!
It’s not really a thing, it’s just something I made up, like the rare diamond-bellied tuxie. I honestly hadn’t noticed that Levine has a black nose until Fred pointed it out!
Here are the last of the pictures of The Coaches! Kathie said that they’re doing great at her house, they’re playing and having a lot of fun, and when she went in yesterday morning, they had turned the FroliCat on all by themselves. They might be a little too smart!
If you’re interested in seeing the progression of King Nubbs’s tail, I put all the pictures on a page by itself, along with a description of what the vet thinks caused the injury. It’s not for the faint of heart, so if you’re the sensitive sort, you might want to skip it. It’s here, and I’ll put a link on their page so you can find it from there, too.
Now that she’s had some time to settle in and relax, our little Mama has started to let her personality come through. She’s a bit of a goofball, enjoys playing with the track toy, the sparkly ball, and whatever will make noise at 3 am. Instead of sleeping in the crate I set up for her, she’s now sleeping on top of it, using it as a hammock. She also likes to sit and look out the window, and yesterday I watched her take a long nap on the top of the scratching post. She reminds me more than a little of Lucy.
